Put the Primacy's on Saturday. Ride considerably smooth and much quieter. But the STR's were worn down to practically nothing, so I suppose anything would be an improvement. Have also taken it on a...

Averaging 19.7 in my '05 3.0i. I would say it is a 70-30 highway/city. On straight highway, it is getting every bit of 25, sometimes more. I use BP Super 93 octane.
