The highway mileage is driving on 460 west from the coast of Virginia to the mountains. The speed limit there varies from 45 to 65, but most of it is 55. I drove 62 most of the way and at 68 when the limit went to 65. I use BP 93 octane and synthetic oil and differential fluid. The car was serviced just before the trip. It actually averaged 29.6 on the round trip (a little more than 600 miles). Since then, I've done the trip at 28.6, addling a little to the speed (5mph). If you can get one of these in good shape, DO IT. It is the very best car I've ever owned (Healey, Jaguar, Hondas, Camrys, Galant, Buick, etc.) and frankly, it isn't a close contest.Report it
One other thing about the mileage: I did put a coat of Maguir's cleaner wax followed by a coat of Maguir's Gold Class paste wax on the car. It was super slick for the trip. I strongly believe that a recent coat of wax adds at least 1 or 2 mpg to the result for most cars. I know I get the same phenomenon on my Lexus ES 300 (better gas mileage with a recent wax job).Report it
