    i've had my SS for 3 days now. I've been driving a long bed extended cab Z-71 silverado. I'm loving the mileage with the camaro. i don't know how much the camaro tank holds, but i have been doing $75.00 a week with the truck at $2.60 a gallon. Yes $2.60. That's SC price. And i have not been real easy on the car since i got it. I am loving the hell out of it. I have been having horsepower withdrawls since i wrecked my 72. Its in the body shop now. you can see it on my homepage. also check out my buddies 77 280 z with the 383 stroker at the bottom of the page. It will pull the front tires off the ground. sorry about the rant.

    I get 17 in town. I've got an MTI power package on it too. I shift at 2000 rpm in town and about 3500 rpm when I get on the on ramp to the interstate. Don't know about highway mileage yet. I haven't been on a long trip.

    I get about 18 mpg in mixed driving. Mind you i'm typically in rush hour traffic in California. If I just drive on the freeway i've gotten 24mpg.

    I have 4.10 gearing and a Z06 Cam.

    I usually shift at just over 2000. I shift 1-3-5 and get about 18-20 in town. My last roadtrip was to st louis and i got just under 30 cruising at about 85 or so.

    18.5 mpg, everyday driving. I haven't taken a highway jaunt yet, but the previous owner said he got upwards of 29 mpg on an all-interstate trip. Only on my fourth tank, but the first one pinged at higher rpm's so it was lower octane and it got 17 mpg. Last two tanks were 93 and got 18.5 mpg. This tank will be the first with Mobil 1 synthetic. I bet it will go up slightly.

    I run BP (Amoco) 93 octane and Mobil 1 synthetic 5w30. I don't believe he did. I also have an SLP lid, all the free mods, and a Flowmaster exhaust (previous owner installed). I row through all the gears, easy on the throttle, but maintain at least 1500 rpm in the highest gear chosen. I haven't had a manual for a number of years, so I enjoy shifting. I'm gonna buy that skip shift cut-off. That is an irritating feature. Also gonna likely install a Pro 5.0 shifter.
