2015 Ford Mustang GT: Fuel Update for April — Commuting Miles Bump Up Overall Average
May 15, 2015
That 5.0 might just stand for its average mpg by the time we get through with it.
It's really not that bad, though. In April, the Mustang spent most of its time commuting our editors around Southern California, so it's hard to expect any kind of fuel efficiency heroics from our 2015 Ford Mustang GT's five-liter motor. That said, we did add another 1,200 miles onto our not-so-little pony (yeah, I went there) and managed a minor improvement in fuel economy.
Let's face it: You're never going to get stellar mileage out of a short-geared, 435-horsepower Mustang but we did increase the car's overall average by a couple tenths. With any luck, we'll get the Mustang back out on a race track and drop the overall lifetime average closer to single digits — right where it should be.
Worst Fill MPG: 9.5
Best Fill MPG: 22.8
Average Lifetime MPG: 15.3
EPA MPG Rating: 19 Combined (15 City / 25 Highway)
Best Range: 263.9 miles
Current Odometer: 6,007 miles
