:lol:
I just returned from a 2000 mile trip to Northern Quebec to see the whales return to the St. Lawerence .
Glorious!
I was amazed while cruising down US 87 to see the my Janus Joplin Sunshine Express C 230 K was getting 39.9 mpg!

On a average around town aka city driving I get 23-25 miles per gallon. ON the highway around 30 MPG at times. Your mpg seems very high.

My best tank of gas was 34.1 mpg, and that was all highway driving, but at 70-85mpg (15 over the whole way)!

Just did a trip at 32.8, at 80-85, with the air conditioning running!

Around town I'm averaging 26-27mpg for a tank.

I'm very pleasantly surprised with the mileage.

I have 13,000 miles on mine and do mostly highway commuting. I get between 28.5 - 31 routinely. If I get bogged down in traffic that takes its toll and shaves a couple of points off of a tank. My previous car was a Jetta TDI , so I'm a bit spoiled - but still impressed with the mileage. The biggest factor (aside from sitting in traffic) is temperature. Cold winter temps will lessen your fuel efficiency dramatically. I was getting about 26 in the winter.

gas milage

:roll:
I must admit that I was cruising down US87 between Albany & NYC which is on a downward slope a lot of the way.
Still, it was more then I dreamed would be possible in a MB.
Thanx for the feed back.
Now to clear the bugs out of the three pointed star!
