Great mileage, just returned from a 3200 mile trip. With 2 persons and some luggage driving about 78 MPH the gas MPG was 24.2. On the return leg driving at 70 MPH the average was 27.6 MPG. The van has 157,300 miles.

One of the engine main seals busted and tires seem to wear quicker than normal even with proper rotation and balancing. Also have had the SRS light on now for two years and have not had diagnosed.
