Unless the highway driving is predominantly uphill, my '91 200 can 
often average in the 28-30 mpg range, when there's no headwind. 
That's for speeds of 75-80 mph. At a steady 60 mph (can these cars be 
driven like that?) an average mpg significantly over 30 mpg wouldn't 
surprise me (that's just an hypothesis--never been tested). ;-)

  Around town, my car's average is down to about 17 mpg.
