I guess I'll chime in here as well. I get around 19-20 MPG (US gal) around town and around 22 on the highway, where I've usually got the cruise control set at around 77. This is with the climate control on "auto" as opposed to "econ," by the way.

I like that answer Logan lol. I haven't driven mine enough to be able to tell what I am getting for MPG, but I would say 10mpg sounds about right for my test run :)
Cheaper ain't always cheapest.

I had a 250+ mile ride home after picking up my 2003 W8 Wagon. It was ALL freeway, so I thought it would be a good HighWater mark for gas milage. I recieved the car with a fairly empty tank. Surprise Number 1, the car took just over 20 Gallons to fill! I put 93 Octane Premium in it, as that's what I'm used to putting into my Crossfire. I traveled with CruiseControl set at Mach .1 (75 MPH) with occaional "Bursts" up to 85 - 90 MPH.

But with 251 miles on the Tripometer, it took a Miserly 11.1 gallons to top off the tank.

MPG = 22.6

We'll see what "City Driving" comes back with after a week or so.

Gas mileage in the winter is going to be lower than summer due to blend changes and cold weather. That said 22 g on the highway is very.typical.

18.5 Around Town. That's stop-n-go 45 - 65 MPH. I've dicovered the ECON button. I'll see if that makes a difference!
