I have a '92 100S FWD :-( with the V6 and an automatic, and I get combined
mileage (mostly highway....) of approx. 21-23 mpg now (during the winter) and
was getting 25-27 mpg in the spring/summer/fall seasons... and I drive 70-80
mph on the highway (yeesh... do the State Police monitor this list?) and
reasonably tame in the city (ie no jack-rabbit starts...remember this V6 is
no stoplight stormer...).

I think that is great MPG for doing 70-80 mph.... (sometimes I wonder if I
could break 30 mpg if I went the "double-nickel"... but I haven't been able
to bring myself  to inflicting self-torture!) So, I have no complaints...
