travelled from las vegas to sacramento (about 600 miles) using around 20 gallons of 91 octane fuel. that's a mix of (80%) fairway and (20%) city miles and running with a faulty O2 sensor.

its actually far econimical than my 1.5 liter 95 hyundai accent.

Driving on back highways between LIttle Rock AR and Jackson MS.. I think about 300-320 miles, 4 hrs 30 mins going roughly 10 over I use exactly half a tank of gas. SO I'm happy. All of our other cars use more than that on the trip.
