    Been so close to 30 but haven't been able to hit it just yet. Since I got rid of the ninja and gas doesn't seem to be goin down I'll keep on easing up on the throttle

    It varies between what gas I get too. I know everyone says it's a myth, but my car HATES Shell/Citgo but loves Sunoco. With 93 Sunoco she gets 19-20 city and high 20's highway.

    Nope. Just last month I got 30.6 driving across Ohio on the interstate.

    My father has eeked 33 out of his 2000 Ram Air.

    It's very easy to do... set cruise at 75... for 400 miles

    Around town I'm anywhere between 18-22 depending on how I drive.

    Finally took a trip of 100+ miles with my '99 M6. I took my six year old son to Tweetsie up in the mountains near Boone/Blowing Rock. About 70 miles on I-77 and I-40 (65-70 mph) and another 35 or so on 321 (45 zone mostly). Going UP it got a little over 26mpg. That's with Amoco 93 octane. I figure on the Interstate at 70-80 mph it probably gets high 20's, but I don't know if it would break 30mpg. The car has 68,000 on the original plugs and I am planning to give it a tune up with Iridiums and MSD wires. Maybe then I'll break 30mpg.

    I average about 18.5 to 19.5 mpg when the tank is 100% city driving...and that's sometimes getting on it hard to have fun as well, but its not like I floor it ALL the time. During the school year when I drive to school and back, and I would say that my tanks are about 70% highway and 30% city...I would get about 25-27 mpg...when it is virtually all highway, the mileage would be upwards of 28-29 mpg. I would guess right on 30 mpg if it was 100% highway cruise miles.

    BTW, that is all on 87 octane up here in Denver. I'm now trying 91 to see if I can tell much of a difference in feel of the car/accel. and gas mileage etc.

    my 02 ss gets around 15 city, and thats shifting between 2000 and 2500 rpm each time. when i first got the car that stupid 1st to 4th skip shift thing pissed me off, but with premium at $3.50 a gallon here in NY most of the time i just allow it to happen lol. on a long straight highway going about 80 in 6th gear with cruise control on id say i get close to 30 mpg (cause rpms are like 1900-2000). i'm hoping that after i redo my entire induction setup it'l give me at least a few more mpg.
