    As far as I know, no GM car has ever been subject to the gas guzzler tax, with the possible exception of the upcoming ZR1.

    When your use to it it can seem ok. When i killed my last DD i drove the C5 daily for a few months & thats when i really noticed the diffeence. Now its back to a weekender & all is much better. No matter what is done the C5 will never get 400 miles to a tank around town like i'm doing now..

    wow nice, well that definately steers me towards gettin the ws6 instead of settling for the T/A thanks for all the input, i've only seen 98's with quite a few miles go for my price range, i'm hoping to find a 00-02 in dallas, thanks for the inputs.

    i dont think ws6 or regular TA has ANYTHING to do with gas mileage, same motor, same tranny, the only difference is a slightly ?free-er?(sp) flowing exhaust, slight suspension upgrades and rims.....your going to get better gas mileage on the m6 over the a4 however, but the model of the car has nothing to do with it

    My 98 A4 with a 3.42 rear is tuned for premium only. Ported TB and magnaflow muffler, in town only getting 17.5 MPG. Pretty much the same if I baby it or race it around. All my driving is in town so dont know highway on it.

    One could argue that with a free-er flowing exhaust and intake the engine is more efficient. I would say stock vs. stock a WS6 will get slightly better gas mileage based on that, but nothing to shake a stick at really.

    Yea that makes no sense. However, one thing that makes PERFECT sense is that you and I have the two best looking Trans Ams on Long Island.

    Not alot of places to run WOT for long but racing light to light or putting around about the same. I took it to the drag strip for the day. That tank only dropped to 17 even mpg. This summer Im going to take it on vacation, we will see how the highway MPG goes.

    Yeah the gas guzzler tax is usually for Lambos, Porches, Vipers...but Caprice and Cad Allante were gas guzzle taxed in the early 90s.

    hmm...I did some more research and found the 04-06 GTO, 05 CTS-V, and 05ish and up Cadillac STS and XLR were also given the gas guzzler tax.

    thats why to get a six speed on the 04 GTOs was an $800 option, but you didnt have to pay the $1000 gas guzzler tax. So you still saved $200 with the standard tranny
