That is great mileage, Bogie! My MKZ will get that (or slightly better) on highway driving - at 55 mph - but I suspect that your car is more massive than mine, so very impressive.

Glad you got a car that you enjoy!

Awww...let me back up, here. I was thinking of your Explorer when I wrote "massive". My brain isn't yet in gear - or - maybe my brain turned "off" to save me energy?

I am driving 75-80 MPH on 40 miles of highway each day(when said highway isn't at a standstill. I keep wandering what it would do if it got to consistently flatish terrain for 400 miles :)

Our cars probably weigh about the same. Mine is about 2,950 pounds, whereas my truck is about 4,700 pounds (and gets much lower MPGs at 21-22).

That is really great mileage at those speeds! BTW: My car weighs about 3720 pounds - plus - I outweigh you!
; )

P.S. On "flatish terrain" - My mileage driving to KCMO has been about 2 mpg better than what I have achieved driving home. Of course, I'm always in a hurry to get home, so my speed may have been a bit higher. (It's been so long since I've driven to KCMO that I don't remember for sure.)

Maybe the prevailing wind? When it is windy, I can really tell the difference in mileage with both vehicles.

The wind - plus - elevation gain of about 1000 feet coming west.
