I drove this car 100 miles today on the Florida Turnpike enjoying the spectacular sunshine and 80 degree weather.

I filled the tank before getting on the Turnpike and when I got back to where I started I stopped in the same gas station as

I was curious as to what the gas mileage was and was suprised that I had only used 2.3 gallons.

I tried to obey the 70mph speed limit but this car feels so great at 80-85mph that I found myself constantly backing off the accelerator
