Same here, I think I get around 26 on the highway. I cannot complain though because the BMW gets much less.

You should be getting higher than 26, even if I run at 80mph I get at least 30mpg on the highway.

Well, I just did a tune up on everything because it was well overdue for one. I'll see if that helps any. It runs a little smoother now.:th_dblthumb2:
