I usually hit 320 miles at 1/4 tank.

Thats with a lead foot, 50 percent 80+ MPH highway speeds (morning commute), 50 percent rush hour traffic stop-&-go (afternoon commute).

Best mileage I ever got was 435 give or take, i usually get just about 400 on a full tank.

65-70 Is great windows down cruising weather. I usually don't kick on the AC till it gets above 85 or so. You're weak! Take it like a man :p

Wow I thought I was doing pretty bad on gas but I guess not. I get around 260-280 per tank on an all stock 92 xlt with 113 grand on it. I'll let you know if things change when I put my new rims and tires, and intake and exhaust on.

I've found the best way to up your gas mileage is to have the wrong speedo gear for your tire size and gear ratio. I get about 50 extra imaginary miles per tank.

I am the exact opposite. I can not, can NOT drive without the windows down. I feel like I'm about suffocate. And my a/c doesn't work, so, I kinda have to. :p
