When I have done almost all highway I saw 25mpg

Its a loaded 02 ZX5 5SPD leather, sunroof my detailing stuff fills the hatch prolly all together weighs 80lbs+

I shift usually between 2-3k rpm 2k driving conservative 2500-3k normal driving

Lmk if anyone has any input for me...

I just bought it from a family friend...there son drove it and didnt take great care if it.

I changed all fluids fuel filter, plugs and wires ran Lucas injector cleaner through it along with a few tanks of premium cause the gas was sitting stagnant for almost 2yrs...
Injectors IMO.
