Who knows...my stupid odometer is dead. When I first got the car, I was averaging 21mpg around town (with the horrible oxygenated Phoenix gas), with a best tank of 28mpg (on better flagstaff gas - all hwy).

Then the odo died....

Comments: I drive a majority of freeway miles, although that includes a lot of stop and go from traffic. Sometimes I drive easy, sometimes I drive hard, depends on my mood. My future mods, bigger tires and 3.73's are going to hurt my mileage, but I imagine my new trans will help alleviate it. My stock trans slips a LOT

Comments:
1. Get into OD whenever possible!
2. Select 2nd gear when speeds are below 20 (parking lots, turning, etc) to prevent the constant automatic downshifting to 1st gear.
3. The claims of loosing 20% mileage for every 5 MPH over 55 MPH is BS!
