Need some help finding some specs on my car....

I need some help finding some specifications on ym car, and I have already been through some pages of yahoo searching. 1988 Mustang GT Convertible. I am looking for the weight, compression ratio, and gas tank size as well as Fuel economy for street and highway. I have a Hayne's manual but not an Owner's manual. Currently trying to find an Owner's but haven't had any luck yet. ANY help will be appreciated thank you.

EDIT; I just looked up all the information for a 91 GT Convertible, it's prolly close to mine, but I am not positive so again if anyone could find specifically 88's information that would be great, thanks.

I figured the Hayne's manual would have that, because I have an E-Book Hayne's Databook, with all of that stuff, but nothing on the Mustang lol...Sorry I can't help, but I'll keep looking...

I am looking through it, but so far have found none of the info I am looking for, it should be in this right? The Hayne's Repair Manual?

For the GT, it would be City-16 MPG, Highway-24 MPG

All I can find right now, I'll keep looking.

Thank you very much, I think the compression ratio is 9, but that is all I got for the 91-93 models, and although similar I'm not sure of the differences between years. I am searching as well continually.

Actually I just saw a site that said the compression ratio was 9:1 from 1987-89.

Thank you, so far only the tank remained the same, the weight in 91 was heavier and the compression was different. Thanks everyone!
