That was with all settings in Efficient and Comfort for the most of the highway trip. Honestly I thought that was more than acceptable on the MPG front for this car. Oh yeah, that was on the winter tires and wheel setup. So not sure if the 20" summer tires would have made any difference.
Now that was fantastic MPG, I would love that kind of "cruising mileage".
Live for now, life is too short.
