Reset it when I filled up about 120 mile trip I was up to 21.4 but with all the stop light on my way to the house it lost 1 mpg. You have to baby it staying around 55mph to 60mph and some short 60mph but that is with about 1/2 hills and 1/2 flat rode. Yes it is a 32 gal tank hurts every time I fill it up at 3.79+ a gallon because it is almost a $100.00 a tank.

But it will do it if you do not use cruse control because it takes a lot of manipulation of the gas petal to do it. But as soon as you get into town with a lot of stop and go it really eats up you millage. You have to drive like a old man in the slow lane I hope when a tuner finally comes out I can do the same going 65mph and 70mph
