I can only get 17/25 mpg on my 1999 TAURUS SE, I heard some guys can get 24/30 for their bulls. Is there anything wrong with my car? Or need I do something to get high MPG?

You need to get the codes read, and see what's going on. Sure sounds like something's not right.

17/25 is pretty much average.
You could always do what most other people do, though...

Oh forgot to ask, how heavy in your foot.  I know I would do better if I would quit taking off so fast or speeding around slower cars on the interstate.
:withstupid: :lol2:

My foot is pretty heavy, too. With my car I've seen just shy of 31 on the highway and I think the best I ever got in the city was 24. Generally I get an average of about 26 with mixed highway/city. (60% highway probably) However I am 99.9999% sure that my intake silencer removal, k&n filter and flowmaster muffler increased my MPG. :)

I get about 19-20 in the city - short trips about 6 - 12 miles city driving.
this is on my bone stock vulcan with 133 kmiles on it.
Also I have a feeling that I am getting a slightly better mpg now that I changed to 10w30 motor oil.
