With my 318, I ranged anywhere from 12 to just under 16 (on the highway) with 3.55s. On average, I was somewhere in the 13-14 range.

6mpg around town!

JUST got the driveshaft/axle shim situation squared away though, and took it on the interstate for the first time in 9+ years on Tuesday. I'll check the mileage again here soon, and see if it's improving!

Gassed back up at 100 miles on the trip odometer - 36 of that had been on the interstate. Took ten gallons exactly, so I'm up to 10mpg with some interstate driving -
