So I took the bullitt out on a road trip. From LA to Vegas. Finally got to see what kind of gas mileage i was getting on my car.

So here is the break down:

Cruise control set at 80mph

Rpms 2.4k

drove 225 miles

used up 11 gallons of gas

avg 20.54 per gallon

Not bad for a boosted car with 3.90 gears...:cool:

Only filled up once at the boarder still had alittle under a 1/4 tank left but didnt want to chance it.

Oh by the way everyone in Vegas loved the car every hotel I went too I had valet drivers and people asking me about the car. I even had people taking pictures with it. Even me and the wife were driving down the strip people would take pics:smile:

If you had set the cruise at 70 mph you may have seen 23-24 mpg. For 80 mph the mileage is good.

What size are your tires? I have 255/40/17's (right about 26" tall)with 4.10's and turn right at 3,000 RPM at 80mph. With 3.90's I wouldn't expect to see a 600 RPM difference.

I have a 275/30/20 that is pretty close to being around 26" maybe less.

Stock 3650? I'm just suprised at how much difference in RPM there is. I jumped jumped 600 RPM at 70 mph (1900ish to 2500ish) from stock 3.27's to 4.10's. 3.90's shouldn't be that low unless you've got a steeper overdrive or taller tires.

Anyway, sorry to hijack your thread. Glad people took notice of the Bullit.

Yes its a stock 3650.

Did u recalibrate your computer for the gears?

I know I had to when I put the 3.90's n.

Yeah, I got an SCT3 with it and set the gear ratio to 4.10's. Weird.
I guess the .20 ratio makes a big difference.


Oh by the way u know u can adjust all the way to tire and rim size. I had to do that when I put the 20's on.
