I rarely get break 20mpg as indicated by the computer.  What is the top gear
ratio in the 200?  For me 80mph is 4K rpm.  I finally got a six speed trans
with a .72 sixth, hoping when I get it installed I'll see some better

Been commuting with the 200q20v on occasion; a mix of highway, some
some city.  Getting average of 22 mpg.
Did a trip to Maine; mostly highway, mostly at over 85 mph, occasional 
reckless acceleration to pass.  20mpg.  Return trip, mostly at 80-85ish,
traffic, less showing off, 21.5 mpg.
