What's your average Highway fuel economy?

Please enter your Volvo 850, S70, V70 (up to/including year 2000*) or XC70 (up to/including year 2000*) average highway fuel economy, measured in miles per gallon, over the life of the Volvo.

This is average highway mpg. For best highway mpg (for instance, one outstanding road trip), please vote in What's your best Highway fuel economy? poll.


* USA models. Some regions outside the USA you subtract one year.

Easy 32/33 mpg but in Australia our gallon is a little more than US gallon. 70 mph and light traffic gives an average metric of 7.5 litre per 100 kilometre

My 1996 Volvo 854 gets 35 mpg highway when I drive 60 mph or less.
