25+ avg mixed highway/secondary roads in Summer, 24+ in Winter.
Best tank ever - 28.3, the other 97 OBW we had hit 29.0 once.
Worst tank, all city driving in Winter, 20 mpg.

average with mostly freeway... 25ish
average on the mazda zoom zoom type road... 23ish
best ever... 28.1
Something I've noticed.. gas mileage sucks at over 70 freeway speeds... it's like these cars were built to get great mileage between 50 and 60mph... that's how I got the 28 tank. Took a trip through Yosemite, beautiful drive, spent most of my time between 40 and 50 and probably would have pulled 30mpg if it weren't for the 80ish getting to Yosemite and coming back.

I hear ya!
it's like these cars were built to get great mileage between 50 and 60mph...
When I'm driving down the freeway the damn thing is revving at like 4k the gearing is so damn low!
Oh and I have a 97 Legacy GT (2.5MT), that gets about 23avg, up to 27, not that impressive.

My best so far (my first time being diligent at tracking gas mileage) has been 27.2 with mostly highway driving. This is with new spark plugs, fuel filter, and tires with alignment. So, not bad huh?
