Subject: Re: gas mileage

I have a '92 900 S Convertible with only 165k on it so the engine is nice & broken-in. I drive 40 miles each way to work. 30 Miles is on I-95 and the rest on twisty Connecticut roads. I pretty much never get in traffic jams. If I'm not stressed & take my time, I drive about 65 on the HIghway and 45 - 50 on the back road. I can approach 30 MPG over 4 days, but guaranteed that one of those days I was late & ran 75 all the way down I-95. So 26 to 28 MPG is more typical.Towards the lower number in cold weather as the engine takes a bit longer to heat up. There's a definite difference between 65 and 75 when it comes to gas mileage. >Subject: Re: gas mileage >From: >Date: Fri, 18 June 1999 02:35 PM EDT >Message-id: <7ke3ht$ose$> > >In article <>, > mentledgenopsamcom (MENTLEDGE) wrote: > >> Note: I usually drive at a steady 75 mph.
