    I've been thinking about getting a mustang to use as my daily driver. The majority of the driving I would be using the car for would be highway, so I don't think the mileage would be all that horrible. Does it seem like a bad idea?

    I run this car which has a 5.0L Ford in it and get 400km/80L tank

    Edit: which I think means 250 miles from 21 gallons? So that makes it about 11mpg right?
     
  22. With my foot on it, i get around 14-16mpg, but for normal driving I average 20-24mpg.

    Not bad.. If it's all highway and you stay out of boost it will get nice mileage.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I think I'm going to stick with the Miata and just get a rollbar for now, and eventually an FM2 or something.
