I hit 36.5 mpg on steady 75mph cruise control driving non-stop. This was at about 5000 ft elevation. That's a 2.3 wagon MTX. I could hardly believe it and I may never have the conditions to duplicate that feat again. Tank was equally topped before and after to the best of my ability. Next tank involved some long climbs and AC was on most of the time and I got 33.5. Average over 2 tanks was 34.98 mpg. In mixed driving I like to punch the 2.3 now and then and it's looking more like 28.
