You have a manual or auto tranny? What are your shift points? I can't fathom getting 22 in the city unless you never hit a traffic light or, for that matter, traffic.

BTW, I have managed to get 45+ mpg on the highway. That was for a mile-long descent, though... And wasn't there a thread some time back about some guy getting over 500 miles on a road trip to FL? And someone got 30+ mpg while going 80+. Something like that.
