Not to play kettle in this, but it is possible... I used to get between 22-25 mpg in an 89 Lincoln Towncar with the 5.0 V8 (yeah, you know I'm talking about the square boat) and that was in late fall, winter dropped it down to around 20. It takes a really light foot to keep the tranny shifting low in the RPM range, but that car did great under 70 mph. I don't have much else to say but the "proof is at the pump".

Additionally, I did have tires that were an inch larger in diameter than stock.
