I think you've posted on here about your gas milage before. I have virtually the same car as you, 97 4.6 stock engine. I put 3.73 gears in and removed the air silencer, that's it. I monitor and record all my records and I average about 23mpg and when I cruise anywhere on a roadtrip, I average anywhere from 28-30mpg. And I'm about 210km (145 miles) on that engine.

There has to be something up with your car to be only getting that kind of milage.

I have 2 Cougars, 1996:


Black:

Engine: 4.6l
City MPG: No city driving (1%)
Highway MPG: 26.2 long term avg. (99-now)
Fuel Used: Exxon (Tiger Oil) 93 octane
Average highway speed: 80+
Average Climate: ~50F
Mechanical Mods: Silencer removed
Milage on the engine: 117k (Owned since 30k)
Comments: Inherited this car, totalled it about two years ago; have almost completely restored it (body damage). Drives great.
3.27 locker
Ceramic pads
BFG 225/70H15



Red:

Engine: 4.6l
City MPG: No city driving (1%)
Highway MPG: 21.2 long term avg. (03-now)
Fuel Used: Exxon (Tiger Oil) 93 octane
Average highway speed: 80+
Average Climate: ~50F
Mechanical Mods: Silencer removed
Milage on the engine: 193k (Owned since 130k)
Comments: Bought this car after totalling the black one; at 130k for $3k; immaculate inside; didn't come with ashtrays (strange)
Non locker rear diff, now 3.08; most of data with 3.27 NL
semimetallic pads
BFG 225/70H15 Stock Wheels

Castrol Syntec in both, 5W30. Changed at 3k. Yeah, thats about once a month...

I can't find any reason for the mileage difference; the two cars have been consistent except for problems, which were almost always shown in the mileage first.

I have replaced all the o2 sensors on both cars over time, if the rear ones short they somehow cause problems with the front ones.

I change plugs and wires every two years; transmission fluid as well.

I drive 48 miles one way, five days a week, more if I drive to lunch. Average ~500/wk

I tend to test my speed limiters regularly...

Red '96 Cougar XR-7 240k mi. '02 4R70W, PST DS : '03 PI engine, 04 maf, 24lb injectors, 2.5" exhaust, '02 4r70w + Jmod, DirtyD0g TC + cooler + 3/8" lines, 255 walbro fp. Alpine system.

Black '97 Tbird Limited Edition, '02 4R70W, 255 walbro, PST DS, PBR Brakes&SS lines, Toicko Blues & Springs, GrogTune.

I'm not Human enough to be human; but I'm trying to fit in, and I'm learning to fake it.

Who knows...my stupid odometer is dead. When I first got the car, I was averaging 21mpg around town (with the horrible oxygenated Phoenix gas), with a best tank of 28mpg (on better flagstaff gas - all hwy).

Then the odo died....

Comments: I drive a majority of freeway miles, although that includes a lot of stop and go from traffic. Sometimes I drive easy, sometimes I drive hard, depends on my mood. My future mods, bigger tires and 3.73's are going to hurt my mileage, but I imagine my new trans will help alleviate it. My stock trans slips a LOT

All Glory to God!

RIP JOHNNY LANGTON

Comments: Fixed all the messed up stuff, waiting on the new throttle cable to replace the clutch cable the previous owner had rigged up as a throttle cable.

No matter how good she looks. No matter how cool she is about your "stuff". No matter how great she is in bed, someone somewhere is sick of her crap.
