I get about 13 city and I am anything but easy on her, I hate traffic. I can't remember what I got on the interstate for sure but I think it was about 19 which isn't bad if you consider I usually run 90 and up on the big roads. I bought my 99 from my brother and he said I could see 15 to 16 city if I was very easy on it at all times, will probably never see that.
