Gas Mileage

What kind of gas mileage are you guys getting? The first few tanks of gas I got about 17 MPG and now I am at about 19.5 MPG. Thats using some very easy driving too. I have not really gotten on the GTO yet! I did't buy the car for good gas mileage, just wondering what others are getting?

04 Red / black 6 spd GTO
K & N cold air kit

93 T/A A4 with lots of mods
12.41 @ 109 1.71 60'

14 mpg is the worst I've seen, and 28mpg is the best. I usually average 17mpg.

I average over 26 on all hwy driving but around 17 at other times. I notice the cold weather, hills, and the amount of right foot insertion are key contributors to dropping the average. At 5000 miles I'm going to switch to Amsoil Synthetic in the engine and tranny and see if that makes any difference. I may even play with some vortex generators on the back of the roof line if I can find any.

The best so far is 23hwy/17city, not even close to the advertised 29mpg. I'm not complaining, I really didn't believe it anyway. I have a '96 Vette LT4 6spd 45,000 miles on it and it only gets 23mpg/hwy.
