2015 Ford Mustang GT: Fuel Economy Update for November: Awesome Exhaust, Awful Efficiency

by James Riswick, New & Used Car Editor on December 9, 2015

2015 Ford Mustang GT

Our 2015 Ford Mustang GT's awesome new Ford Racing exhaust continues to be, well, awesome. I found myself driving in third and fourth on the highway this morning just to revel in the noises that so wonderfully enhance the big 5.0 V8.

When I told this to some fellow editors they all nodded their heads with a knowing smile as if to say, "Oh yeah, I do that too."

In related news, our lifetime fuel economy went down in October and November to 15.7 mpg. True, that's only one-tenth of an mpg, but it's still quite awful given the EPA rating of 19 mpg combined. 

Worst Fill MPG: 5.3
Best Fill MPG: 23.5
Average Lifetime MPG: 15.7
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (15 City/25 Highway)
Best Range: 321.6 miles
Current Odometer: 18,021 miles
