undefined :( What kind of Gas Mileage are people getting with the Automatic??? Is it as bad as the sticker would indicate? I always run higher pressures in tires and get better Mileage,,,My Grand Prix has the New GoodYear Assurances on it with 44 lbs pressure and does great??? I don't want a Manual, but hate to give up almost 10 MPG for an automatic, plus the Gas Guzzler tax?????? Thanks for any help,,,

I average right about 17 miles to the gallon. This is probably 50-50 driving between highway and city.

You can really watch the avg fuel economy go up on the highway. On a Monday, my average to date is usually between 16.5-17. After a week of highway driving, it may go as high as 18. But, after a weekend of running around town, it drops back down to around 17.

I don't baby the car for sure but don't run the car hard all the time.
