How much MPG do you guys get on average? I get 11 MPG. Just asking since I don’t know if it’s good or bad. I usually drive in the city.

The STS V8 is officially a "gas guzzler" and a tax was collected at the dealer sale. My original window sticker which I still have says it was $1000. I see about 23-24MPG on the highway during the summer and 10MPG in winter in town.

An interesting educational exercise is to set the DIC to instantaneous MPG and watch what it does when you shower down on the foot feed.

I live in a small town, but never see an average below 15 or 16 for in town driving. My overall average for mixed driving is 19 and a fraction almost always. My hiway driving is 26 and the sweet spot is aggressive driving and cruise at 65 to 70 mph. These cars are not set up to be babied.
