I am considering purchasing an '06 LS.
I drive 35-40 miles to work every day, sometimes more if i need to road trip.
What kind of actaul hwy mileage can I expect?
(I know driving habits can cause this to vary)
Thanks in advance!!!!

    Depending on ethanol content of the gasoline, terrain and speed you should expect 25-28 or thereabouts.

    I was gonna ask V6 or V8 but then I remembered all '06's are V8's. My V6 gets mid 20's easy but I'm not sure on the V8's.

    I can only tell you what I get with my '01V8 with 137k on it. I have a heavy foot and I get about 24+ MPG on the highway. I'm sure that the mileage is a little better on the newer models.

    I have a V8 '01, and get 25-26 easy on the highway, and I'm usually running full-boogie...
