I get about 28 - 29 mpg on the highway on my '97.

I don't think the city mileage is meaningful, because no one can account for getting into a traffic jam commuting or taking three cylces to get through a traffic light. That being said, I get about 16 mpg city.

yea same estimate here best ever fuel economy was highway at like 31mpg

14-16 city, 19 or so highway. It decreased a lot when I put 20's on it. Plus my alignment aint too good either.

I am around 18 City and about 25 HWY and thats all driving it like its not mine... BUt I avaraged about 20-22 on every tank... and just today I topped off 12Gal and I had 275mi... most of it was HWY...

THe scan gauge mostly reads the numbers I have noted above... the colder weather and the winter gas are going to lower it somewhat but I will see where its at when I get a chance...

Road trips I average 24-27 mpg per tank, best tank average is 29mpg. Have ran up to 350 miles before fillup. 13.9 gallons is my largest fillup.
Yeah and some days I still run it like I stole it. Those days (if there are no long road trips) I do good to get 17mpg.

With the price of gas these days I'm driving more like Granny than Junior.

Overall average is 26.5. It dips to 24 when the injectors need a bottle of cleaner. I've gone 410 miles on one tank but it was one of those driving on empty without noticing days.

I drove one of mine from IL to GA. First tank got over 26mpg, second over 28mpg. Mixed I get around 19-22mpg, city 16-19. Not too bad overall
