I usuallly get get around 30the in mixed driving. I have an MTX and go slow on highway. Have gotten mid to high 30ranking numerous times. Will get log book and post exact figures. 39 on a tank this week, but it is very sensitive to top off techniques so not sure data is the best.

i get about 23 on the highway which is probably not too great. I think I went 330 miles on a tank. In the city I've started jumping gears, going 1st, 3rd, 5th and that has helped a lot because my city mileage has been much worse. Not sure why i'm getting 23 on the highway though. :/

I am averaging high 20's in the city and mid 30's highway. As I said in another post, I can squeeze 340 miles out of tank.

I'm getting avg 29 mixed city/ highway driving for mpg's. Just properly gapped new plugs, inflated tires to 45psi hoping for a better average. Probably going to get a Scangauge E to help with my driving habits, I'd like to get above 30mpg
