The 6 is a great touring car

I routinely get above 35 mpg on the highway. The highest I’ve ever gotten was ~41 mpg average on a trip from central Texas to Denver and back. It was winter, so no A/C and winter gas bought in Colorado, the car was lightly loaded (me, my wife and some luggage), and long, straight stretches of interstate and four lane US highways.

No air pump, but maybe I should invest in one?
I've made use of my air pump so many times it's paid off many folds. I bought a cheap one from Pep Boys and it's lasted me years! You'd like to think that gas stations have air pumps, but most of them don't, or they don't work. They're small enough to keep in the side cubby hole in the trunk. Just remember, turn the car engine ON, then turn on the pump BEFORE you screw the hose into the tire.
