I usually run around 22 mpg in the summer but I'm not exactly easy on the accelerator either. On a trip I usually get around 25-26.

Not a whole lot better. My old 88 T-Bird 3.8 used to get 23 city and 29-30 hwy. My 95 T-Bird 4.6 gets 22 city and 27-28 hwy.

I think these cars are too heavy for a V6, that's why the V6 mileage isn't better than it is.

I get about 375 to 400 kms per tank in the city. But Im not easy on the gas either. On the highway the car will drive forever on a full tank.

worst I ever got was 18mpg, and have a VERY HEAVY FOOT. I averaged 20 around town and 24 on the highway stock, 19mpg around town and 26mpg on the freeway will all my mods and supercharger. The 4.6's tend to get worse mileage around town but better in on the freeway.
