Road Trip: MPG, Oil Pressure, Engine Temp. etc.
I bought my '99 SSE several months ago, and have not done any extended driving in it. Yesterday I took a 254 mile round trip and used 8 gallons of gas. That'* 31 MPG. Is that about what I should expect? The car has 106,500 miles on it. The temp. gauge got up to about an indicator needle'* width from the 200 mark. Oil pressure was about a needle'* width shy of the first mark past the 40 indicator. There was no fluctuation in the temp or oil pressure at all, although it did take about 45 minutes to get the temp. up to that mark. It was 95% highway miles, travelling about 70 mph.
