275 miles & 1/4 left:)

Some get better, some get worse. For me, driving the atx -ZTW wagon and being at 275 miles with a good 1/4 tank left, it's a good tank. Usually I'm around
225-235. At 92K, it's good to see she's still got it together. I'll run to the fuel light, my measuring stick. It would be a record if I get to 340. The only thing I changed lately was brought my tire pressure to 32psi. Other than that, good maintenance and synthetic. Guess I'll find out today how far she gets. Roughly
75%hwy/25%city.

Maybe not as good as a Focus, but I average 25-26 city/country and about 32-33 hwy in my '04 SRT4. Decent mileage but poor range due to 12.5 gallon tank.
