    I figure 8-11 in the city depending on how how hard I drive.
    It really amazes me how much of a difference it can make.

    10-12 here. Drove 2 + hours straight at about 55-60mph, w/ 2 slows and one stop for a toll at the end (no ez-pass there) a couple weeks ago. I think she did about 16 mpg that time. Non-functional fuel gauge in mine, so knowing mpg is pretty important...
