My latest trip from Chapel Hill to Arlington, VA got 31.7 mpg (114,000 miles on odometer). Includes some city driving in Raleigh and Chapel Hill as well as some through the Arlington streets.
I did about 50 miles of "in town" driving and then returned (including stop and roll construction traffic getting out of DC). Overall gas mileage for the entire trip: 31.0 mpg.
My normal mileage has been running about 26.4 with a 30/70 split of city and highway driving.
As I noted elsewhere, I replaced the airdam on my car and noticed both the radiator temperature being somewhat lower AND an increase in gas mileage. Four weeks ago when I made the same run to Arlington (same stops for gas, same approximate vehicle weight, same tire pressure, same gasoline stations) I got 30.4 mpg until just outside of the Capital Beltway. Heavy rain dragged the mileage down on the final 20 miles of the trip.

My 1996 ES with a 3.5 is getting 23.4 combined city/ country road commuting on midrange gas. I'd say maybe 20% city, 80% country road driving. I usually use SeaFoam in the gas when I fill up; that seems to have given me about a mile per gallon improvement.
Total miles so far: 150,970.

I'll join the fun. Last week on a trip from vancouver to calgary and back I got 29.8mpg on the otis in a 1999 with a 2.7 and 87 octane(cheap gas).
Keep in mind this is crossing both the coast and rocky mountains twice. 2600kms total. For such a big car I couldn't be happier.
I usually average 24mpg for city driving in the mountains on 10% ethanol.

|CluelessinMO||Recent trip from Kansas City to Cincinnati & back: My 3.2 got 28.0, 28.7, and 30.0 at 70 with air conditioning on. The 30 was with a slight tailwind, the 28.0 was with a slight headwind.|

I did that too, removing the restrictor, I didn't notice much difference. The only nice thing is that it gets alot more air. I'm thinking I'm going to build a new scoop for the intake box. Get more air from that nice little area behind the fender.
Also I need to either find a way to seal the box or just buy a new one. I have two cracks and only one bolt holding the top cover on.
