They do look great though. Perfect for a weekend warrior car but I wouldn't do it on a daily driver. Mind you, price of petrol these days you would need to be royalty to afford the petrol to daily drive a Mustang..

Hang on, I have figured it out ! *that* is why you live on that small island.....
My brother has an Orange 5.0 GT he averages 35 to the gallon around town and 8 if he floors it but fuel is the least of your worries with these beasts, it's the cost of replacing those back tyres when you get loud pedal happy.

My first car ever (if you could call it that given it was a truck) had a 5.7l V8 in it. Same one they use in the cop cars out there (Crown Vic). It did 7 miles to the gallon lol. And yeah, it too had a happy back end

Oil pump went in the end (bloody Fords) and then I got my Taurus.

White wheels might be too much white though. I think Wraith's original post was perfect! That color setup, wheels and all, is le sex!

How? I averaged 30mpg on a daily motorway commute with a 3L turbo'd straight six. And a mate of mine with a V8 RS4 averaged lower than me.
