i rented a tiny little 2007 corolla for a trip recently. in mostly highway driving, i got over 35mpg! my average speed was 80mph over 280 miles, no cruise control (don't know how to use it), with full-throttle acceleration when passing trucks and even with a few triple-digit dashes thrown in. when i filled up the tank i calculated the mileage to be 35.4. god knows what mileage i'll get if i keep it below 60 and baby the throttle.
what a neat little gas sipper! just don't ask me how it drives. wink
