That should be considered good right? since our cars are rated 26 highway..I just thought it would be higher since our minivan with a 3.5L v6 can easily do 30 mpg while cruising and has more horsepower than a zhp LOL

First time I drove the bimmer this far as we usually take the minivan (and it just had to be the weekend gas spiked up LOL)
I would say that's good haha Running down there, I think I averaged 27 mpg down and back but I tend to have a speed addiction on I-5 I also had my car stuffed to the gills. I made it from North LA (where I sat in almost 2 hours of traffic) to Gilroy on 3/4 a tank. Problem is I left North LA with 3/4 a tank Running on fumes.

I have noticed that it seems like the sweet spot is right around 80 mph. That's a Jeremy Clarkson excuse but nonetheless...
