I drove a friend of mine from Fort Worth Tx to Nashville to buy a truck and it was 1300 miles round trip and I got 40 mpg keeping at 70ish and 40psi in the tires. (was going for maximum fuel millage) did nothing else to the car. My friend and I were very surprised when we put gas in the car and we figured it out at 40mpg.

33.2 stock to 35.4 fully bolted. Who says performance is costly?

On a full tank drive until you are almost at empty. Record the miles driven and completely fill the tank up. Repeat a couple times and total miles and gallons up. Divide miles and gallons to get ACTUAL MPG, the cars computer is a good guestamate only.

That was 100% highway with no traffic and keeping my foot out of the gas pedal. I did the correct fill it up and drive it empty and fill it up again math. Around town on the highway I get about 35 mpg. Sitting in any traffic at all kills gas milage I've learned. It all really comes down to how you drive your car.

I'm bumping around about 38.4 US mgp these days. I thought I might be more in the 39 mpg range by now...with the weather warming up as it has. It may be my foot's been a little heavier lately ..or maybe it's that traffic hasn't thinned out enough yet with school still being in session. The car seems to be running just fine.

42 Canadian mpg? Is that different than 42 American mpg?

Yep, 42 US is about 52 to a Canadian gallon.
A canadian gallon has 5 quarts and a US gallon has 4.
