You are spinning a drive shaft and have a big differential in the back, so yes this will affect your mileage. It also adds weight. I put this in perspective using my previous car as an example.doesnt it being RWD have alot of to do with fuel consumption as well? i went from a 2.0t saab 4dr automatic to this 2.0t gencoupe manual and i was getting 32-36 mpg on the interstate in the saab, i noticed i only get like 24 in the gencoupe cruising at 70 and i assume alot of the difference comes from the drivetrain??? being as the saab was FWD and the gencoupe is RWD?
Agreed! It's all about smiles per gallon! Might get flamed for this but I'm in the same position with both my old truck and new one, I spend almost $40 more per tank but the trucks are more fun to me than the gen was. Plus the R/T ran 6 tenths quicker in the 1/4 mile than the gen(14.7 vs 15.3) and the new one should run what the gen did or slightly slower. Although the trucks suck more fuel doing 1/4 mile runs than the gen *sigh* But again smiles per gallonLet's put this whole mileage thing in perspective. Compared to my Vibe I am using around 2.5+ gallons of gas more per week. With current gas prices I am spending about $10.00 more per week to fuel the Genny versus my Vibe. Am I getting $10.00 worth of entertainment value?

+1FUN TO DRIVE is key. If you bought it for mileage you bought the wrong car.
Oh, your 300+ Horsepower sports coupe that is one of the baddest ass cars on the road, can outrun a Porsche 911 to 100 MPH, and accelerates better than a BMW or comparable Mercedes but costs only half as much only gets 25 miles per gallon? Cry me a river.
