As far as fuel economy goes, it's completely dependent on how you drive. Just this past weekend, I did a little experiment. I drove 300 mile from southern WI to the north woods. Since I wasn't in any hurry whatsoever, I tried to get the best MPG possible, driving about 60ish, no cruise, and pretty constantly watching the evic instantaneous MPG display. The trip is fairly flat for much of the way, and I had a little bit of a tailwind for much of it, but at the end of the 300 miles, my average was 23.5, and a topoff check confirmed it.

Most of us here can't normally keep our foot off of the fun pedal, but it CAN be done.
