On highway, with driving techniques I have been able to achieve 32-24 MPG average for 300 miles! Not bad for a 3.5l 6 cylinder!

It can get in the high 20s and have extra power available if needed.

Highway mileage is quite good, up to 28-29mpg, for high speed interstate cruising. Very good for a responsive sporty car.

Small tank and poor economy = frequent fill ups.
