local driving was about 40% city and 60% regular highway....averaged 26 mpg with just me in the car.

hi-way trip was all 4 lane to pick up friends at the airport. steady driving, cruise set on 75 but on the way back there was 3 of us and a trunkload of luggage....got 33mpg.

not bad for an 89 with almost 300,000km(187,000miles) on the odometer!

bil, you do realise that our gallons are differnt from there'*?
