Ok, the J30 is absolutely horrible on gas and espicially since it runs on premimum gas makes it more expensive. Although the owners manual says if your in a pinch you can run regular but don't make it a habit.

The J30 has a fairly large tank capacity and running premimum gas I get in the city about 280 miles but on the highway cruising an average of 70 mph I get about 325-330 miles. Something that may help the gas mileage in the city I discovered is the car has a tendency to switch the climate control to AUTO which runs of teh AC compressor, if you chg over to MAN or ECON it will disengage the AC compressor. I have found that this helps considerably.
