My secretary is a very nice lady, she’s been with me just over 6 years at this business and over 10 at our last employer (though not as my secretary). She is prompt, faithful and provides excellent customer service, but she’s not what I’d call the sharpest pencil in the cup. I bought my GT 500 in August, 2008 and she acted happy that I got it but didn’t rave over it like other folks did. She finally told me, sometime this spring, that one of her friends was just nuts over my car and she couldn’t figure out why…..she thought a Mustang was a Mustang. I think he pointed out the major differences…I didn’t bother going into it with her—anything beyond “where does the gas go in” is beyond her automotive intellect. Then, just the other day, I pulled up at the office in the car with the top down (I’ve been driving it a lot more to my work these days) and she commented that she thought my F-150 was more my style, the Mustang looked a little “girly” for me.

 

She’s available immediately, I can forward you her resume’ if you wish.

 

On the other hand, we just completed a 1330 mile round trip in the GT 500; Kentucky to Panama City Beach, FL and back. Interstate miles, cruising at between 75 and 80 (with occasional bursts to 90+ “just to clear the traffic, dear”) I managed between 20.3 and 22.6 mpg. Cruising and running around driving brought the overall trip down to 18.1. Amazing! I’ve got 500 horses at my beck and call, and can still take a major road trip without breaking the bank. I wonder if it were more “manly” would it get less mpg?

I don't know about cruising on the highway but yesterday I put in 10 bucks worth of gas (about 72 miles on the reading) I used that up in about 25 minutes on a backroad at 120 mph.

:hysterical2:

Thanks for the post man, that's too funny.

 

On longer hwy drives I get about the same as you, low 20's. I agree, pretty dang good for a 500hp car.
