The fuel consumption figures of the 2015 Ford Mustang have been unofficially revealed.

Mustang enthusiasts over at Mustang6G report the EPA ratings for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost version stand at 26 mpg (9 l/100 km) combined, which translates to 22 mpg (10.7 l/100 km) in city and 31 mpg (7.6 l/100 km) on highway.

The base V6 unit gets 17 mpg (13.9 l/100 km) city and 28 mpg (8.5 l/100 km) highway with manual transmission, while the V6 automatic is rated at 19 mpg (12.4 l/100 km) in the city and the same 28 mpg (8.5 l/100 km) on the highway. The range-topping V8 data is not available yet.

For a comparison, the previous generation V6 automatic Mustang got 3 mpg (0.8 l/100 km) better rating on the highway. The 2015 Mustang manual ratings fell to 17 mpg from 19 mpg city (1.44 l/100 km), to 28 from 29 (0.3 l/100 km) highway and to 21 from 22 (0.5 l/100 km) combined.

On the other hand, the latest Chevrolet Camaro with V6 and manual transmission gets the same 17/28 mpg EPA rating (13.9/8.5 l/100 km) as the Mustang, while the V6 automatic Camaro gets 18/27 mpg (13/8.7 l/100 km), which is slightly behind the Ford.
