I drove my baby home to Rochester, NY at the beginning of March and well I was pleased. I filled up in Stratham, NH right before I got on 101 to start the 465 mile trek home to NY. I have run 93 in her since I got her.<p>I actually made the whole trip 65+ MPH driving on 95, 495, 290, and 90 on <b>ONE</b>, I repeat <b>ONE</b> tank of gas. I wasn't using cruise control cuz it seems to eat more gas than normal driving. Light was on for 30-40 miles I think but the trip computer kept saying I had more mileage to go, so I kept going. I kinda babied it at that point...normal acceleration and cruising.<p>I refueled right in town back home and took the below pic.<br><IMG SRC="http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/8703/005hap.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>I put in like 16.something gallons...which I am sure S60 has an 18 gallon tank so the 2 something gallons would have been more than the 35miles the computer said I had. After refueling computer said like 510 miles to empty lol. I calculated the MPG for my trip from my receipt and it was like 28.2 MPG....pretty good I think ;-)<p>Can anyone beat or match that? Would like to see if anyone else has gotten around there or better on a full tank on a road trip <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

The other week, my wife, me and another couple rode in the S60 for about 300 miles. While on the highway, i reset the average speed and mpg counters just to see what we were getting fully loaded. with the a/c on, fully loaded, cruise at 78 mph we maintained a average fuel economy of 33 mpg until we got off the highway and into stop and go city traffic.

Re: (Turb04S60)

On a complete trip from Rochester to Syracuse, there and back...I ended up with 33mpg overall (urban, city, and highway). There was some spirited driving in there, and a general cruising speed of 80
