That'* about right. Some say oh, I get 30mpg. There are so many factors involved. Driving style, road surface, wind, traffic, hills, elevation, gas blend, ethinal %, evil right foot. So 22 is about average.

Mmm I dunno. 300 of highway, seems a little low. Like Dan said though, many things factor in.

You will get much less per gallon if you live in Cali where being on the highway means you are stopped in traffic on the highway folding laundry or reading a book.

ahh i c, i drove the highways late night so not much stopping involved. But I guess those 24 miles in the city had about 100 stop lights. I developed a pretty light steady foot from that horrible time when gas prices were 4$+.


Thanks for the info, i guess I'm just getting a little paranoid comparing it to my friend'* integra that gets the same mpg with 10gallons. :[

If you drive light footedly, you may have an issue with such a low gas mileage result. Recent tuneup and such?
