That's what I'm talking about.  I don't remember exactly how many gallons I
put in the last time I filled it, but I always fill it, so I'm guessing it's
around 19gal.  On a full tank I get about 250-300 miles before I'm empty and
have to fill up again.  So my freeway estimate:  300/19=15.70mpg., city
estimate: 250/19=13.16mpg, and mixed driving being somewhere in between.
