My '85 wagon gets anywhere from 21.5 to 28 mpg. Usually it is all city driving, and that is when it gets from 21 to 24. When I mix in just a little highway, maybe 40-50% of the tank, then it was more in the 25 to 28 mark.
I have never taken it on a highway-only trip yet.
Still, 21 to 25 isn't bad at all, considering my F150 gets 13 to 15, and my wife's Toyota van gets 18-19mpg...
