Question Fuel Consumption!

I got my 8 almost 4 weeks ago. '07 gt silver manual.

It is a very tired topic. Use Search and you should easily find some. In fact there is a sticky.

dude, the 8 SUCKS on gas. Period. If it weren't for all the other amazing qualities, the MPG would be enough to hate this car. i get about 195 miles before the low gas warning light comes on. At least gas is only $3.50 a gallon.

220-230 before that yellow light comes on telling me i'm low on gas. Fill up about 12.5 Gal. 8000 miles so far on the car. Gas mileage/range slightly improves from when i had it day 1.
Anyways, i have to say i get on the car up to redline through the gears atleast twice or more everyday...But i haven't really notice a difference in fuel consumption when yi'm driving aggressively or when i'm driving lesuirely. I guess that's a good thing.
