though I have gotten 23-24 mpg on my commute to and from work (more realistic tank to tank)

I am dying to put a little 4cyl diesel in my jeep (or my minivan) but that is a fairy tail for now.

The 30mpg I got from my XJ was a one-shot deal, but it averaged 27-28mpg highway for the longest time. The thing about it, is it has always gotten it's best highway MPG at 65mph; faster or slower and the MPG will drop.
