That's great mileage for a 3800 in Buick Grand National. I am fully aware of winter gas and driver habits but this is just ridiculous. In gridlock and creeping along, I would expect poor mileage. But as I mentioned, I did not experience any bumper to bumper during this last tank. I really quite enjoy this car. I was happy to be able to have a fun to drive car that was supposed to deliver on economy as well. The fun part is quickly being eroded away.
Hi Darth_Focus,
