I think I could beat that, I got 3xx miles on 1/2 of a tank. But I haven't had the need to drive far away to rack up the miles, but I'm sure I could beat that, I'll find out next fall when I move to New York.

I suppose if the car is running great and you use cruise control to level your speed it would increase your mileage. I wonder what the speeding ratio is. For example- I heard that for every degree over 68* your heating bill will increase by 4%.

Well, I may be mistaken. But my car gas tank was full when I left and I watched it SLOWLY go toward half and the miles was above 300 when it hit half. I don't know but I'm pretty sure it was over 300 at half

Score!

If the 95 has the 2.84 FDR it could help out the mileage too. The 97 could only come with the 3.05 FDR IIRC.
Not saying 300 on a half a tank is really possible but it could get better than the 97. Ohh and the 95 is lighter too.
