And yet you'll still talk to me :)  Maybe it's the plates.

Actually, our 01 still get's at least this on the freeway, city is a little 
less, but that's an 01, with a brush guard (big hit in economy).  With decent 
gas on the freeway we'll get closer to 20, and that's fully loaded.

Gotta keep that guard on there in case you get in front of me :)

Comparing with some friends/neighbors, we definately have the best out of that 
range of vehicles. Their Dodges and Nissan's get pitifully less than the 
advertised amount.

Of course, the key thing to remember here, it aint a commuter vehicle, it's 
the one we use when we need it :)
