    24.9 mpg average as of today, but a lot of long, country road driving over the past few days in the '98. Usually the trip computer has it at about 19.something mpg. I use mid-grade fuel as the owner's manual does not warn against it as does the manual accompanying our '04 XC70 which, by the way, seems to get a lot better mileage.

    Never seen over 16.2mpg, EVER! (2000 V70XC) Mostly, (probably 85%), city/suburb driving. Using full synthetic oil and max. tire pressures with spot on alignment, drive like an old guy 'cause I am one with no tickets since 1977!! Lots of snow lately, which will cut 10-15% or more, off mileage, but a thirsty, expensive ride, none the less. Especially with mid grade fuel above $4 gallon, which is what we have been using with no apparent problems. Mileage with Premium fuel exactly the same, no additional mpg.
    $20 oil filters are a pain in the %&*!!! Yup, $20 at local Advance Auto parts!

    Had been getting 17 in town, 24 on the road, ('99 XC, 160K, driveshaft out, conservative throttle user) Then, replaced the PCV system, cleaned the MAF and Throttle body and all the other recommended things, runs great, but now I get 14 in the city, 20 if I'm luck on the road. Go figure
