Okay, It’s Not a Prius

A Mustang GT with a 5.0 liter V-8 isn’t known for its fuel economy, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that I got 24.75 mpg on my drive from Miami to Tampa yesterday, and that includes crawling through bumper-to-bumper traffic on the Palmetto Expressway, the stop-and-go rush hour traffic on I-75 in Fort Myers, and a trip to Publix last night to pick up groceries.

Good thing, too: regular at the Amoco station in Brandon was $3.39.
