Gas Mileage

What are the V6 FI cars seeing on the hwy for gas mileage? This seems like a good way to go if you want decent mileage and available power when needed.

Yeah, it's about the same. Jim505 is getting a little over 30 on the highway, and I think PT_Killa was getting even better. Generally turbos improve the gas mileage a bit on most cars, as long as you can keep your foot out of it.
