Congratulations on the purchase of your car. It is impressive. Did you stumble onto it or did you know of the rarity first and go looking for it? I get under 25mpg. Maybe I should check the odometer. I'm with JCE, I don't know how you can get that kind of mileage. As for the power, I think my car is doing pretty good. There is a 3 mile hill here that is a 1000 foot climb from sea level. Lots of cars bog down on this hill but mine takes it reasonably well in 5th.
