I just purchased this, and wanted to note my mpgs before lifting it and putting 285's on it. Driving it home from SF bumper traffic for 2hrs followed by 75-78 mph cruise control 89 octane I averaged 18.0-18.1 mpg on I5 (flat, although through the area around SF I averaged 17.6.

I'll post more after the life.

Man, I'm doing something wrong. I live on the flat part of the east coast and im seeing 15mpg on trips of 70-80mph. Maybe my O2s are bad and ECU isn't picking up on it.

My o2 sensors were bad, and the check engine light was on, replaced both upstream o2s and cleared the codes. Immediately noticed an improvement in mpg over the next week or two just driving back and forth to work. I have read things about o2 sensors becoming “lazy” as they get older. Could be a possibility.
