Yeah, I can see 8 .... and in those conditions, 15 would be super-human!!! (super-car? - no, that would be a Lamborghini or Veyron - - ????)

Hills, hills everywhere! Hence why I'd be ecstatic to get the 15mpg I was used to in my '99 Crown Vic. My '86 Cutlass with a 307 V8 and 200r4 got comparable mileage to the '71 with a 350/350. Dunno what gives
