    Don't have real world figures, but the 215 HP inline 6 in that car was not famous for fuel efficiency. EPA numbers were 16 city, 21 highway. Being 16 years old, I doubt it's any better, now.

    My son's friend has one... and, describes his fuel mileage as "crappy". High teens. And, it uses Premium fuel.
