depending on the 24v. from my experience i have a vp 24v and i get about 17-18mpg average, where both my brothers and dad get around 21-22mpg avg in their cr 24v. but ive never had any experience with 12v's

edit: when i say average i mean even mix highway/city.

I get around 18 intown, and thats not really granny driving but also not bagging the crap out of it!

On the highway, if im lucky i see mid 20s, usually in the low 20s as i prefer to get to where im going a little faster!

17ish around down and 22-23 on the highway. My last fill up today was a 21mpg average 50/50 city highway! wewt.

Freinds 98 12V gets nearly the same as i do, hes a little better around town since he is running 285's to my 315's and hes a little better on the freeway since he runs a cap too.

Sorry to skew the results put I just guessed one so I could see the poll results!

But, the one I guessed was the one that is winning currently. 2nd gen 12 valve.
