I can't seem to get 30mpg lately, however that is all city driving and NO A/C but I do have the window down since it has been 100+ degrees lately. Hopefully I can take another highway drive and see what I can do.
I did a test commute in my wifes saturn 5 speed and managed over 52 mpg over three days and 130 miles, armed only with a scangauge and a kill switch and good energy management. I got there faster than with my metro too
We took it on vacation and managed 41 with a trailer full of stuff and staying off the interstate.
Here I am having trouble knocking down 30MPG, however it is ALL city driving and when I do drive it on the highway I can get upper 30's to 40. Having an AT doesn't help the cause either. But I am extremely happy with the car and hope that it will last a long time.
Maybe I need to do more "gliding" but in this hot weather with no AC I do sometimes get impatient.
