For most of 2007 I got an average of 27.2 mpg. No engine mods. So far this year I am averaging 27.3 mpg. I go to Costco for gas like its my job.

Well, my wife's automatic 2002 ZX3 averages 26mpg with mixed highway/city driving in proportion of about 50/50 even. Highway at 60-65mph. If it makes a difference, we use 5W30 oil not 5W20, fuel is just your regular unleaded 89 with 10-15% ethanol, whatever they use here in Nebraska

I just did 36 mpg highway at 65-70mph, 32 city/highway mix. I keep tires at 40psi which has had the biggest impact. The car now has 236,000 miles, original clutch and no motor issues yet. In fact I checked my receipts for last year and I only spent $170 for repairs and drove 27,000 miles! damn this car..I want to get something newer but this one wont die!

Wow, your averages are higher. I am guessing you're manual. My wife by no means drives aggresively. You make our 26mpg average sound terribly low :) Are you on 5W30 or 5W20 oil?

^^if you raise your tire pressure up it increases the gas mileage a lot, he was running 40 psi, I was messing around once with some tires I was about to have replaced, and put them at 44psi(that was the max psi rating labeled on the side wall of the tire) and I followed a semi at 75-70 mph for an hour and got about 35 to 38mpg(this however is not what ford reccomends as its labeled on your door)

just 5/30. Yes its a manual. I keep tires at 40lbs. Its a harsh ride but picks up a few mpgs. I draft semis and trucks but not real aggressively like some people Ive seen. I get more into the dirty air behind them. Im going to get a Scan Gauge to really me out. I did all highway this past weekend for a trip and got 39 mpg! Damnit so close to 40MPG...but I drove 60 mpg the whole time and followed a semi for quite a while.

39 is impressive no matter how you put it. Let me put it in perspective for you, the best I've gotten out of my Legacy GT on the freeway has been 26mpg so far :) You gotta pay to play.

I was impressed since I got a newer wagon yesterday and I managed to pull 39.5 MPG out of it. The 39.5 is based off the 213miles I went and the 5.39 gal that was on my reciept when I slightly over filled the car. I just got it so I could get better mileage than my truck and wow it almost doubles it.
