I don't have cruise control, 13 hours of my foot on the gas. Either way my car isn't 'tuned' really that great, not what I'm saying. Just making fun of the the fact that some people have a boner when their 'fuel efficient' 80hp dangerously slow car gets 35mpg when I can get 31mpg and have a fun car.

The OTM gets 32mpg average
Curly, I have no idea what size tanks went into the different year NA's. My point was, my gauge is horribly non linear so someone saying they get X miles on the first 1/2 tank means nothing if they are going by the fuel gauge.. Thus I get about 200 miles on the first 1/2 and 50-70 from the second 1/2 according to the gauge. I average 270 miles a tank and a fill is about 10 gallons. Makes for easy math. You should be getting better than 20mpg with your MS. Warm up eats gas if you don't have far to drive though.
