Every LS owner with a 6speed claims 30mpg highway.

I don't. I also don't drive a car that has modern engine tech, cylinder deactivation, six speed transmission and a considerably lighter body.

It should be able to do better than 29mpg.

Yes terrible. It should get what 200-300 mpg like the other 400+hp sports car offsets?

Personally, I still think anything past mid 20's is high.

This is coming from someone with a 15 year old truck that gets 10mpg.

Yeah but to get that 30 you have to utilize skip-shift which means going from 1st to 4th. The car locks you out of 2nd and 3rd unless you are driving with authority.

These are EPA numbers. Compare them to other EPA numbers (like for the C6), not what some guy on LS1tech says he gets.

Skip shift has nothing to do with highway mpg.

No the highway mpg is acheived in ECO mode with 4 cylinders in deactivation mode, which means it is running on fumes.. But whatever, I figure if you touch the gas at all it means you give up that 30mpg number.

But still, we will hear for years how the C7 gets better mpg than an accord. All the stipulations will never be mentioned ever again.

I've had 2 c6 z's in my family. Both got ~28mpg on the highway going ~75 with the ac on. I was kinda hoping for something alittle more aggressive mpg wise with all this tech to have my cake and eat it to. Hopefully real world proves these EPA numbers underrated. Otherwise ill take the 7.0 lugging at 1800 rpms with less finicky tech.

This shouldn't be a surprise, the Corvette has been getting pretty good fuel economy for years and now that they have finally stepped up to the challenge of newer vehicles GM has once again raised the bar...honestly though, I am tired of all the talk...I want to see real world numbers. I am sure the new Corvette is underrated in a lot of areas.

I'm sure it's overrated in plenty too.

The t56 C5 & C6 weren't rated at 30mpg and everyone I know with one gets that mpg on the freeway (93 oct). My '01 WS6 was 27-28mpg highway.

I'm just hoping the new STi gets close to your old numbers, especially with over 100 ft lbs and HP less

My Mustang will see 26-27 mpg on the highway. For something that's much sleeker, more aerodynamic and a lot lighter, I'd hope it'd do better than 29 mpg.

At any rate, it's largely a moot point. Who buys any of these cars for fuel efficiency?

Not fuel efficiency per se, but range is nice. I remember getting 15-18 mpg in my '94 Cobra, which got pretty old with a 15-gallon tank and a habit of refilling when it hit the 1/4 mark.
