What do you get for fuel mileage?

How much does fuel cost per gallon where you're at?

How many miles are you planning on travelling?

If driving 95 miles and you get 18MPG at $3.45/GAL your looking at about $18 in cost. 5.7 Gal used

TOTAL MI Divided by MPG X COST per gallon

The short answer , yes. I can easily get 17 to 18 mpg driving back and forth to work 44 mile round trip. One red light and two stop signs. Average speed, 50 mph... I put it up on the interstate and go much over 62 or encounter headwinds the MPGs drop significantly .. 70 mph usually adds up to 14 mpg ..
