I always think this is a strange question to ask, if MPG is a concern then why consider a V8?

Having said that mine averages 22, I can get 36 on a steady motorway commute to work driving like Miss Daisy but that's a very rare occasion. So probably not much worse than your ST.

I just wanted to ask cos if they were really bad like 10 mpg then I wouldn’t buy 1 but i can cope with 20

Gallons in the US are smaller than gallons in the UK.
Does everyone know what country the others are talking about?
UK gallon is 25% larger than a US gallon.

A good indicator of fuel consumption is the tax band/price in the UK.

V8 is £550 per year
V6 is £260

I think most would say the extra fuel and tax costs are worth it for the noise. :)
