    When I had stock 3.27 gears and a lock-up convertor I did see 28 mpg on a trip once. As it is now, I'm happy with my 15 mpg and mid-12 second timeslips

    To think I was ticked off recently when I got 23 mpg! I used to get 26-27 but I need to do some things (o2 sensor, fuel filter). Guess I will quit cussing at my car!

    I'm out on the highway all the time where the car gets 24-26 mpg. I don't do enough in-town driving to notice a difference.

    Gerardo,
    You might want to check this article out regarding T-Bird ABS systems. It is the best article I've seen on the system.

    i have a 17.5 mile drive to work, and it's all on back roads...

    speed limit is around 35-45 the whole way, so i just chug my way there...and enjoy my 22 MPG... i'd have to take a trip on the freeway to see what kind of highway mileage i'm getting.

    I get ~260 mile to the tank with no OD, but I never let it get to the point where the fuel light comes on. This is after new fuel filter, pump, new O2's, fresh oil change & cleaned the air filter.
    What size gas tank do the SC's have?

    I just made a weekend run of about 400 miles. 30 around town and the other 370 on interstate running 85 to 95 mph. I was happy to see 22mpg. I had no idea it was that economical at those speeds. It gets around 18mpg just around town. AOD and 3.23 gears. Catch you later, Bob.

    Okay, I have seen two posts about 30+ mpg at 80-95mph. I think you need to redo the math. What process are you following to figure this mpg? It's not right.
    It's only impossible until we do it.

    92-97 OEM gas tanks are all the same size. I don't remember the exact size, but it's around 18 gallons. I believe the 89-91 gas tanks have a little bit more capacity.

    Of course, none of this really matters for determining MPG since you should be using the number of gallons it took to fill up your tank, not the possible capacity.
