I'm pretty close to gone's numbers

Mileage=16800

Highway=~30
--w/premium I get about 33 when making long trips

City=mid 20s
--my work is like 2mi away from my house so I probably spend more gas warming my car up in the morning than I spend on the drive.

First tank 100% city driving = 30 mpg. Second tank 98% city driving = 31 mpg.
This tank will be more mixed City/Hwy and I can already tell by the gauge and odo that I am doing better then I have done previously. It is not beat on and I drive for fuel economy. Looking forward to checking this one to see how it does in a mixed trial. My 06 is an auto with zero mods.

24 - 34

Give or take.

Right now, this tank will be a 24 As i have been a bit speedy on the highway. 70mph highway, doing 20-30 over. Solid, for 60 miles.. Yeah not good on MPG.

If i baby it. And not in a huge hurry. I can do 34 or so. Cars is amazing on gas when you want it to be. :)
