Fuel consumption

The United States Environmental Protection Agency mileage estimate for the GT is 12 mpg-US (20 L/100 km; 14 mpg-imp) in city driving, and 19 mpg-US (12 L/100 km; 23 mpg-imp) in highway cruising, for a combined 14 mpg-US (17 L/100 km; 17 mpg-imp).On May 14, 2007 a GT participated in an economy driving contest around Reykjavík in Iceland held by FÍB (the association of car owners in Iceland)and the oil company Atlantsolía. The driver Gísli Jón Bjarnason, finished the 143 km (89 mi) circle on the GT through hilly terrain with average fuel consumption of 11.31 L/100 km (24.98 mpg-imp; 20.80 mpg-US). This performance was then improved in the same competition the consecutive year. At that time the driver Egill Jóhannsson drove the lap on the GT with fuel consumption of only 8.37 L/100 km (33.75 mpg-imp; 28.10 mpg-US).

Cruising regularly at 80-85 mph (1900 rpm) I get 21-23 mpg. Sixth gear is a big help. Worst gas mileage is sitting in parking lot or gas station gunning it so people can hear the exhaust.
