It depends on my hightway/city ration, but if I do close to a 50/50 mix, I get around 21-22. That'* with new wires, plugs, O2 sensor, 1 new coil pack (rusted terminal), new fuel filter, new air filter, and cleaned throttle body.

I get about 23mpg average with mostly freeway driving. Idle is a little rough. Seems like a very slight miss at times.

Ghost gets about 29 to 34 on the highway depending on speed and terrain of the highway. If its any indication, I can go about 140 miles on a quarter tank.

My 2000 gets about 18-20 city driving and 27 highway. Depends on the highway speed, though - only going 55 I'll get mid-thirties.
