Ford Mustang Gas Mileage: 1978 – 2013

By all accounts, the Ford Mustang has had one heck of a run. The Mustang’s arrival in the 1964 model year brought on the pony car era, and while performance has always been at the forefront of the car’s appeal, gas mileage in the smaller displacement versions made a bit of hay over the years, as well. Although easily overlooked, the Mustang’s gas mileage ratings set a remarkable high point for fuel economy in 1983, touching the 40 mile per gallon (MPG) highway mark when fitted with the stingy 2.3 liter four cylinder engine.

While the Mustang’s gas mileage ratings dropped considerably (or perhaps more realistically), a four-banger could be found under the hood of the entry-level ‘Stang for another decade. 1993 marked the last year for the 2.3 liter four cylinder engine, with a still respectable 30 MPG highway.

The 2011 model year marked the arrival of the most fuel efficient V6 Mustang to date. We were invited to Bristol Motor Speedway to witness the Mustang 1000 Lap Challenge, where a stone-stock 2011 V6 Mustang circled the historic half-mile track to see how many laps (and miles) could be coaxed from one tank of gas. Check out our video …


We’d still like to see a return to the wicked turbo four-banging roots of the Mustang SVO – sold from 1984 through 1986 – but with a direct injected twist. Bring on the EcoBoost!

I find it interesting that car manufacturers love quoting and advertising “highway” mileage. How many people actually drive to work everyday qualifying for “highway mileage”?

A 2004 Roush Stage3 Mustang (400 hp) can achieve 20 MPG COMBINED/CITY !!! (Which is the same for alot of 4 cylinders out there)

As Ford wrestles with its financial woes, I think they should focus on working smarter… not harder.

They don’t need to reinvent the wheel with batteries.

A tire-smoking plug-in electric Mustang would be way cool. This article from EV World on the Ronaele 300E electric Mustang is just a hint of things to come.

We’re about to see a wave of conversions coming from garages across the land. This propane powered Mustang is another avenue to a world where we can have muscle cars AND independence from imported oil. While this one’s not a Roush unit, I’d reckon that they’re not that far down the line, as Roush already converts F-150s to run on Propane.
