I've not been around much lately, but Shammu continues to just cruise on! We just drove from Or-y-gone to LA and back last week... 24.23 mpg average and the only issue was turning off the a/c going up the Grapevine because it was 91F outside. If the rear seat was cloth instead of vinyl, I'm pretty sure my kids would have ridden back there on the trip.

I can't help it, I have a thing for wagons!!!

This last weekend was up to NW Washington and back... 25.2 mpg! The 305 and 72 mph seems to be the combo!
My windscreen suffer on this trip though Caught a rock on the edge and then the excessive heat took over.

25.2! Nice! I will have to check out my mileage now too....

Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don't have film.

I'm not sure how anyone is getting those kinds of numbers. I'm getting 13 here in San Diego.

I saw low 20s on a mixed rural commute 55mph with stop signs every few miles and some in town.
Pure highway mid 20s was easy even loaded with AC blasting
