100% city driving during the work week (school, taking mother to work, etc....). I drive with a lead-titanium-steel-anyother[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]gmetal foot. I'm surprised I get over 23 MPG. If I don't, it's usually 20.9-22.8 MPG. I rarely, if never, use my AC or heat (for heat, I let car warm up, then I drive the way I usually do. Since I have the dial on heat, as air passes over the engine, the heat comes into the cabin, therefore eliminating the use of the fan. I'm not that stupid though - I will use my heat this winter, but it's been those very cold fall mornings where it's 40, but it warms up to about 70-85 by 2pm).

On the weekends... it all depends if my mother wants to check up on her brother (he's definitely not himself...) in Philly, or if my cousin wants me to pick him up from Delaware State. In those cases, I get between 27.4-29.2 MPG.
