DEARBORN, Mich., March 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Since first coming off the assembly line 45 years ago, Mustang has always been known for its sheer power and speed. Now you can add another element to that reputation -- best-in-class fuel economy.

One year after the Ford Fusion Hybrid, America's most fuel-efficient mid-sized sedan, successfully eclipsed 1,000 miles on a single tank of gas, Ford will put its new 2011 Mustang V-6 on a similar quest as it attempts to run 1,000 laps on a single tank of gas at Bristol Motor Speedway on June 23, and they're inviting consumers to be involved.

A team of Ford engineers and celebrities will attempt to prove Mustang's ranking as the most fuel-efficient pony car to date by circling the half-mile NASCAR bullring at least 1,000 times – more than 500 miles – and highlight the 3.7L V-6 model's best-in-class 31 mpg.

at what speed? This is not a good way to advertise a pony car.

if the Mustang was a new/unknown I'd agree with you, NDW
but
since the Mustang is THE Pony Car, imho it's like a whole new attribute (great MPG) that people need to know about and won't assume automatically
Well said :) .

Ford needs to approve it to advertise it against the camaro and challenger.
