In my old 900 Turbo Cab I got about 23-26MPG, driving pretty hard, but very little city driving. New job, new car, I drive my 95 900 TurboSE quite gingerly and mostly city driving - I'm doing about the same as you report in mileage. Of the six Saabs I have owned, none have ever seen 30MPG on a regular basis, even on all-highway driving. Even my old 96 V4's, with only 68HP still got 25-28 Highway, which sort of proves that all those gizmos we have today actually do help - we have a much heavier, much more powerful car without increasing fuel consumption. You may be pleased the day you go for a pollution check - my high-mileage 900SE has "0" or unmeasurable CO pollution levels! GF
