Default Decent mpg's...

Last weekend, the wife and I drove the Cruiser to north AL to visit my family and our son that now works there. I kept the mph to under 72, mostly right around 70 on I-20 and I-65. I filled up before getting on I-20 and stopped in Oxford, AL, for a break and fill-up. That showed 30.3 mpg, the next fill-up was 28.7, around town with a lot of stop-and-go dropped it to 16. The 30.3 is the best I've seen so far. It does help to keep the speed down on the Interstate, just not much you can do about it around town.

I love my turbo lite - more pep than the '02, PLUS an MPG or so BETTER mileage.
Another reason for going slow is states are looking to traffic fines as a means of raising revenue!
