    Hi All, I checked the gas mileage for the first time since I got my 6
    cylinder Sonata. I got 21.4 MPG, all city driving. Not bad! I'll be
    taking a 400 mile freeway trip (one way) at the end of the month and
    I'll post the freeway mileage then.

    Mileage should get better after 6000 miles ;-)

    My 2004 Sonata V6 gets between 21-23 around town and 27-29 MPG on long trips
    with minimal stops.
    In contrast, my 2001 Corvette, V8 (375hp), 6 speed, gets over 30 MPG on long
    trips with minimal stops.
    Shows what two good overdrive gears can do for gas mileage. Something like
    1500 rpm at 70 MPH.

    Must be nice, the best I can get on my 6cyl GLS Sonata is about 18 mpg
    city.

    Hi all, Well, I just got back yesterday from my 430 mile trip, each
    way. On the way there (from Michigan to Illinois/Iowa border) I got
    31.5 MPG and on the way back I got 30.8 MPG. The slight decrease on
    the way back is because I had me neice and her 2 children, along with
    their luggage with me. I figure the added weight was the reason. The
    car handled beautifully and I am very happy with the gas mileage,
    considering how sweet this car rides.

    You didn't say at what speed.

    31.5 isn't too bad for a new car but I can get better than that with my
    wifes Oldsmobile. It is a '91 with the 3.3 in it.
    Turns in 30 around town and close to 38 on the highway. Not bad for a 4
    door. This is running at 65-70 MPH as well.

    Well, I kept it at 5 over the limit. Most of the way it was 75 MPH but
    I would estimate that at least half of the way was either 70 MPH or 60
    MPH.
