Gas Mileage

I have the 1SS with the M6 transmission and in the city I'm getting right at 16 miles per gallon. What are you guys getting?

I have a 2SS/M6, and I've been averaging around 17 in the city. Not complaining.

I've got a 2LT/RS v-6 6-speed auto and Wife drives it in town so I don't know what she's getting but we took to Colorado last month loaded down from back seat to trunk and at an avg of 65mph I got 26.6 mpg.

I feel pretty good about it considering its a Camaro and not a ricer.

I've got the SS1 with Manual 6 Speed averaging 15.3 mpg- both city and hwy driving- Haven't had time for a good long drive on hwy to see what she gets. Will report next trip to Seattle from Portland....

I'm getting 18.9, good mix of Hwy and City, I'd guess 2 to 1 hwy versus city driving, avg speed 40.

Not driving too hard, but I'm still 100 yards ahead of everyone at every stoplight.

Have a 2SSRS and am getting 21.5 on mostly highway. Did try a 60 mile highway cruise at 65 mph on cruise control and got 24.4 mpg. Don't drive her every day and I do try to stay under 80 so that probably accounts for the good mileage.

1st. Road Trip


The Wife and I just got back from a 400 mile round trip in our Camaro and I have to say that I am impressed with the gas mileage we got. The onboard computer was a little off but I guess it all averaged out. Driving @75 on I75 and @58 on US23, total mpg's was 22 for the intire trip.That estement was made the old fashion way, pencil and paper.
