OK folks,let's here your mpg on your 10 yr old Volvo,..and I just put a set of Bosch autozone plugs in my 2005 2.5t for 15 bucks..didn't get a year out of my 55 dollar Volvo plugs..go figure.I.picked up 7 mph after changing plugs,and 8 mph in the 1/8 mile..what's your gas mileage folks? Is 55 dollars for plugs worth it?
That's right I'm getting an average 26.5 miles per gallon,on 10 year old motor with a 178,000 miles on it with no motor work on it ever!!!!

Had a 2000 V70 with 244,000 miles on it. Got 30 MPG at 80 MPH. Used the OEM Volvo plugs. :p :p :p

Come on!! Really? Average ? Man
Yep, average is about 29mpg. If I'm driving lead foot, like I normally do, I'm right around the 28 mark. But long highway trips and I'll be in the 30s.

I love this car! It shocks people at my work, they expected me to be getting something like 15mpg. :D
