Default Holy COW i got 29.0 MPG!

I didn't think it was possible...Best i've ever seen was 26.9 until this weekend. I went to Cedar Point with a friend, had a great time, and didn't burn much gas to boot. First i've ever gotten 450 miles to a tank too.

I'm pumped!

Texas Twister FTW!
That used to be my kids favorite ride there! But we routinely get 32+ mpg in our big boat Olds doing 75+ and the ac on. Are you */C'd or something? Maybe you got the performace gearing instead of the highway.

The best I've achieved out of Stargazer was 35 mpg and the best in the mountains was 27 mpg (loaded with vacation stuff)

I can break the 30 mpg easily...and that'* with the performance gears!

I was thrilled when I just got 355 miles from my last tank, and that was after a tune-up... i was getting 10 mpg before :P

No, nothing recent. I did have about 30 miles of state road driving going through towns and such, i suppose 30 mpg is possible for me.

Popatim...you caught me.
