Last 218 miles cost me about $80 in fuel alone.

The great thing about the search is if "gas" doesnt work, theres always the word "mileage" Heres a few i found:

With about 300 miles driven so far, i'm getting about 27.
j0e_p3t
i'd say about 30 ish. and i usually drive somewhat responsibly.
elvasoshexai
hm... wow.. the gt's can actually get pretty good gas mileage... never measured my gas mileage yet... but never thought it'd be so good when the rpms are so high @ 120km/h on the highway...

really good brush up on my standard transmission driving skills

22MPG Highway/and I once got to New Orleans from Houston on a tank of gas with some left over to drive around on - SAFCII's are good for that wink.gif
CelicaZR

1995 gt with 5s-fe manual transmission. I get 25-26 city/highway mixture. If I ever baby the throttle I'll let you know whats the best mileage I can get. But so far Im always in the throttle.
95gtschick
if i drive mainly highway, about 400km/tank. if it's in town only, maybe 250km/tank.
Kadett
22-24 mpg on the Highway, you dont wanna know what city driving does to the mileage:(
redtcel

BluuFire

Yep same here and on track last year I got around 5 miles to the US gallon biggrin.gif I love my GT4 laugh.gif
kenjamatic
270-320 miles per tank...the most was 340 miles doubt that i'll get that again...

edit: after i got the headers for my 5sfe i did 385mi at about 14 gallons...roughly 27-28mpg(about 75% highway)
StaticKnotX
ST..30+ mpg, I drive the speed limit everywhere though. The performance is a disappointment but the 5-speed makes it fun
Akira_g4

96 GT Manual, i usually get 330-340 miles. Longest i've gone is around 352.
easternpiro1
I guess for me about 27 highway 25 city? ive gone 380 miles all the way till the sucker started sputtering from lack of fuel. but DAYUM! 12 mpg with the 3s swap!?!?!? i thoght they did better than that on mileage! SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME that hey do better than that!
burneeed

thatcelicaguy

yah same here. boosting im getting 17-22 also...when i keep below boost im prolly mid maybe high 20's. i know i went to AC from north jersey and it only took me half a tank round trip. lol it aint that bad with the 3SGTEs

btw im at 12psi

CelicaST202
i get about 370 stock auto ST.
Agent21
I am getting like 260 on a half tank these days. Almost all highway and absolutely nothing in the trunk. Takes talent. I think the half tank also helps must be like 100 lbs lighter at the start.
burneeed
yah when your not hitting boost in a 3s its pretty darn good on gas.
BBW 99GT
I get 400 mi + a tank in my stock 5sfe with 75,000 mi. Only add on is cold air intake. Basically 26-31 MPG.
DomGT
'96 ST atx, 30mpg (35mpg with mostly highway driving). Gas is about $3 per gallon (87) here in New York. Last tank of gas I got 430 miles out of, I put in 12 gallons. (haha yes I pay too much attention to MPG smile.gif)
GeEkBoY
Just broke 700 kms on a tank, 7.48 lt/100 km = 37.8 miles per gallon = 31.5 miles per US gallon.

about 80% highway, 20% city. 87 octane of course...

toyotacrazy
95 gt manual trans. mostly highway 29.89 mpg. at 70-90 mph sometimes higher speeds!
JediFonger
how're you guys measuring it?
toyotacrazy
On a full tank of gas. Run until empty. Then I fill it as much as possible. Then MORE to make sure its at least the mpg Im getting. The 29 is mostly highway on the way to work. Thats completely stock (wheels, tires, 5s-fe). Calculated many trips 27-29
jdg371
I usually put 89 on my ST.. would it still run fine with 87??

Ill fill my tank up after the AutoX and see how much I can get
toyotacrazy
I always run 87 in my cars. If it dont ping your OK!
Kadett
Old 3S-GE engine 20-22mpg average, best was 28mpg
New 3S-GTE engine 20-30mpg: 20 = boosting, 30= highway/cruising

This may sound VERY strange but its true. With the turbo engine I have less fuel consumption than with my old 3S-GE.

But you can't compare me with most the 3s swappers here, most have a 2nd gen 3s-gte with a US GT tranny and I have the 3rd gen 3s-gte with a "JDM" 3S-GE tranny with has a longer Final Drive/differential.
@ 75 mph I drive @ 3200 RPM where the stock US GT tranny is @ 3800-3900 RPM.

Final Drive
JDM/EU GT tranny: 3.944
US GT tranny: 4.176

blackthunder
