Just did my figures and for my first two tanks of fuel in my brand new v6 optima both came in at just over 29 mpg or 10.3 km/ltr.. 75 % highway at 100 kmh , the rest stop start traffic.
Very happy with that

Congratulations on the great gas mileage. How many miles do you have on your car. We have an '04 Optima v6 with 3000 miles on it and the best mileage so far
has been about 23mpg.

Well, with a current switch of gas brands from Mobil to Texaco, I've seen a noticable increase in MPG. On a full tank with Mobil's 87 I was getting around 16.7MPG or 250 Miles/Full Tank Mixed driving. Now with the switch to Texaco 87, went to 21.7 - 22MPG (325-330 Miles/full tank). Now with this fill up I used LUCAS Fuel Injection & System Cleaner, so I'll see if there will be another improvement. I'll keep you informed! :thumbsup:
Just wanted to share. :grin:
