Default gas milage???

I have a 2003 touring edition and I was wondering what kind of gas mileage I should be getting out of my car. I feel it up with gas and am lucky to get 240 miles to tank of gas. Is that good or bad?

It's reality - neither good nor bad.
Stop & go (city) driving?
I regularly get over 300 miles before gas light comes on.
Put 2-3 PSI more air in your tires than it says on the driver door sticker - it helps.
You can drive fast, but just don't floor it taking off from a dead stop. "Jack-rabbit" starts are mileage killers.
