That'* about what I was getting up until about 2 weeks ago, but mine was 90% freeway miles. Changed my front o2 sensor and my mpg'* went from 13 mpg up to 23 mpg.
Looks like my current tank may be a record mpg (for this SSEi). I have 176 miles on it and it'* only down to the 3/4 tank. I have been doing very light accelerations, and when I get on the freeway I set the cruise at 70 mph. So far it'* all freeway except for the run up to Napa (2 miles round trip) for some brake shoes. Got my fingers crossed for 28 mpg.

Stil trying to figure out why when I go around a corner in town it bogs and hesitates before down shifting. I'm thinking TPS.
