Man I go from gas station to station. I get 250 miles per tank if I am dreaming/driving normal.

But, for the most part I am on the pedal at every light. I launch that mother all the time from 0-50 every chance I get. I love this car!

Dude, do a tune up and replace the O2 sensor. Just think, you could get 25Mpg plus increased performance for your 0-50 rice killing starts

Default mileage

Lots of things effect mileage especially if your doing short trips less than 5 miles.
This kills my SE to around 15 -17. If I do all highway it will do 29mpg.
