What's your average MPG?

I drive a V6 and I just found out yesterday that I get an atrocious MPG rating of 14.7 (V6 Camaros are rated to have an average of 22-24MPG with the lowest at 18)!! It's probably because of how hard I drive the car! What MPG do you usually get with the car?

Mine is almost all highway to/from work, at 20.1. Sounds like you drive it hard and put it away wet for the most part, I do that every now and then, but the MPG always comes back to 20 - 21 after a couple weeks.

I'm averaging 17.4 going to/from work (less than 10 miles both ways). Haven't had it out on the highway yet to see what I get there.

If I set the mpg gauge and leave it alone for a month, I get 25-26 combined highway and town driving. Cold weather will lower your mpg, as well as hard driving.
P.S. You bought a Camaro, not a Prius!!!!
