    So what's the avg mpg? How aggressively do you drive on the hwy and in the city? If your highway driving is mostly in traffic, then all that changing lanes and changing speeds can really affect mileage. Mine is gonna vary more than most, but I can get anywhere from 12-18 mpg on the highway just by changing speed and driving style.

    My 95 does the same thing. I can do a whole tank in the city, then a whole tank on the interstate, and both tanks will be in the 14.3-14.9 mpg range. My problem is prolly a little too much aggression on the highway.

    That could be my problem too, I am a fairly aggresive driver.
