21-25 mpg depending on foot, 25,000 miles on re-ring, rebearing. I am sure I could get it to go to 30 on a nice long hiway trip. This is running Premium I think 91 octane.

I forgot to mention, the 30mpg was done at 60mpH and I drove 600 miles..when I returned,the fill-up was done at the same gas station and pump....patience is greatly required...this car consumes less gas then my carbed car with a manual tranny...go figure???

I was driving an 86 GL-10 turbosedan that had 317,000 on it and was still going until the head cracked wide open. Now its going again with a different set of heads and a minor reseal but still the original shortblock.....I think I was getting about 25mpg but that was on the freway with my foot in it:D

376,000 km so about 230,000 miles and about 18-25 mpg depending on my driving mood. I pulled off the heads and cleaned the ...rings about 20,000 km ago cause they weren't in such good shape didn't replace though. 50,000 km's of that is very hard mountain/offroad drivin with some go fast mods to the engine.:grin:

131K on the T-Wagon with about the same average MPG everyone else posted. And with the same stipulations (to much WOT). The RX isnt getting any MPG right now cause it doesnt have a heart, awaiting transplant :(

My EA82T brat has 550 miles on a full rebuild. I get 30 on the highway easy which is to be expected considering the motor is pushing a lot less weight than the ones in your wagons or RX's

I am running it as rich as I can right now via adjustable RRFPR set to about 45psi. I'm sort of suprised it does so well with the mods done to the internals and the bigger turbo etc....

'88 RX Sedan ftFWD dR DifLk w/ 120k miles. 4-wheeling (the mountain kind, not the asphalt/tarmac kind :)) i get 20, commuting to school- tank a month at 25 mpg if it has the muffler on, 21-23 if not (folks like the way it sounds). but my results are going to be lower than anyone at sea level- altitude and hilly terrain. i've gotten 27 cruizing nebraska (anyone with a spare bullet before i do it again?)
