So far, our first three tanks have been right at 22 MPG, with mixed driving and no modifications. And yes, the speedometer is very accurate. After all, these cars were used as cop cars in the 90's...

According to my MPG gauge (which has been calibrated and also seems to be accurate) some of the longer trips that I have done with it have been in the 25-28 MPG range--again, with hypermiling techniques and no modifications to the car.

I seriously believe that with proper tuning and aero mods, 30 MPG on road trips will be possible.

We'll see, anyways...
