    On the one highway trip that I actually checked my mpg:


    I shifted at 2500 rpm
    Accelerated moderately.
    Windows up, AC on one way, windows down, t-tops off on the trip home.
    Steady speed under 65 mph.

    This netted me 27.3 mpg.

    02 6 speed TA with 3:42 factory gears.

    I would say you may accelerate to fast. If you put your foot in it even just a little while you get up to 80 then it will eat at your MPG real quick.

    I have netted 33mp average on a trip from Tulsa to LA in my 98 formula.

    Also like said above, hills and wind will cause an issue.

    I don't think doing 80-85 was hurting you too much. 6th is high in these cars you probably were not much over if at all 2000rpms.
