I get 28-31 depending on the weather and my driving with my 07 LT 4 door 5spd. Also I am running snow tires at the moment. Hope to increase my fuel milage with better tires.

It will buff...

What kind of driving do you do (in respect to city/highway percentage)? Yeah, snow tires usually kill a few MPG, especially when I put my Altimax Arctics on my Cavalier and my brother's Buick - though they made up for it in bad-assery in snow. Our Cruze diesel has Michelin Xi3s, which are also great in the snow - but are also LRR tires, so they lessen the hit to fuel economy quite a lot.

Downside is you pay about double - but they have a stiff sidewall and actually handle better than the stock LRR Fuel Max All seasons.

My 08 LS BC with cruise @ 117K mi is getting 34-38 mpg with ave speed of 67mph over 400mi run ....but I only use it to go down hill.

Just did another run of 400 miles @75-+80 mph @34mpg. Then filled up and Drove 65 miles per hr for 50 miles @ 38mpg now @118k miles

So I guess its running fair
