Great gas mileage-Thank you Lord, or GM

I have had the car for exactly one year but yesterday was it's first long trip, (LA to San Franciso)). I have been getting 11 or 12 mpg around LA as I always drive in sport and use the tip shift. (It's an SS with AT). Yesterday using drive, and cruise set at 78 for about 400 miles I got almost 21mpg. Used the odometer/gas pump calc, not the DIC as I forgot to re-set it.

I get about 17.6 MPG but on a trip w/traffic I can usually pull of 22 - 24 MPG. Feel pretty good about that ..

My 1999 SS M6 got almost 30 mpg's on the highway, but then again it weighed much less and had an LS1.

My 2011 2SS/RS L99 Auto had gotten 26.8 MPG on a trip to our Northern Michigan property (400 miles round trip) and 25.3 MPG on a trip to Chicago (about the same). Day to day driving (work, etc. ) gets about 20.5 MPG (lotta highway to work). Happy with the mileage when I want it, and the speed when I don't.
