Default LS1 28 mpg !!

I drove my car to dallas for 3 days for work. I drove it like a 90 year old woman... passed up 3 races and drove 65 the entire trip. I got and av. of 28mpg that is going threw a lot of small towns with stop lights and lots of construction. I think the car is getting 29 or 30mpg at 65. It was about 85* with the windows up and the ac on!

i cant belive the car did this well.

It's "through". Nice Kill on the big Oil companies though

As soon as he hit pavement, the 5.0 came alive, I'm not sure if the tires, clutch or engine was smoking, but he hammered it.

They let him think he won... he didn't really win. He got bent over and violated with no... lube... That woulda cost extra.
