On daily commute of over 56 miles one way I have
been averaging between 80 & 85 mpg & have
twice attained 91 mpg (!). My record for a shorter
17 mile trip is 100 mpg. This is a truly awesome
vehicle. Of course, achieving these kind of figures

habits. But even when in a hurry, one can easily
get 50-60 mpg without even thinking.

can get 600-900 miles of driving from a single
tank. How do you like that, OPEC ?!!!
