I wanted to see just how good a gas mileage I could get from my S4
on an extended drive, so I filled up at a gas station right off the
freeway and then drove (with cruise control set to 65mph) from Sacramento
to the SF bay area the entire way, about 120 miles (confirmed by the
trip computer's average speed reading of 64mph).  At the end of
the trip, which is mostly flat terrain except for one mountain pass
at the Sunol Grade, I got a reading on the trip computer of 31.9
average MPG.  I think the computer may be a couple MPGs optimistic, but
it's still excellent for what this car is.

Just thought I'd share this.
