Mustang 1000 Lap Challenge Claiming 48 mpg!


Ok, there is a lot of amazing news going on in the automotive world today, and the 1A Auto blog is on it like a bonnet.  Assuming this video is real, and not riddled with lies, this 2011 V6 mustang is capable of an unbelievable 48 MPG.  It is supposed to get  about 30-31 mpg, but during this 1000 lap challenge, they are claiming 48 miles per gallon.  Is it a miracle?  Is it a lie?  Is the 2011 Mustang really that impressive?  Who knows.

Call me strange, but I would absolutely love to read the O2 sensor readouts on a wideband to see what the AFR is.  It’s got to be running crazy lean (magical?) air fuel ratios if this story is true.

Check out for more info.

  1. Not believing it. The best I can produce, and only for short periods of time (not a whole tank), is the equivilent of a 446 mile tank of gas.

    Granted, the conditions are not absolutely perfect when I drive, but flat level road. But they are talking about a 74% increase in fuel efficiency. I am not buying it.
