    Why do newer models get better MPG?

    Well I was looking at this site that shows MPG for most cars looking for a project car for the traveling I do out of town and got bored and looked at camaros.

    I know I get about 17 MPG, which is what it says for my 94 z28. Then I looked at a 98 camaro and it got 19 and the 01 got 20. These are all manuals. Is it the LS1 that just has better MPG or is there something else with the cars that does it?

    Yup, the LS1 is better technology, and more efficient.
