Mileage - ZX5 mtx

Well I had my first test of straight highway driving, and was pleasantly amazed with my mileage.

I kept at a steady 115 kph /70 mph with occasional bursts to 125 on a 3 hour highway drive this past weekend. Although there are some small hills the car never left 5th gear.
I got 45.3 mpg! (about 37.7 in US gal).

Not bad. Not scientific...but not bad

My car is stock ( but well maintained) and was loaded with 2 adults and a couple hundred pounds of "stuff". No a/c was used as it was a cool and rainy weekend.

At $0.91 per litre for gas I really appreciate this car!
