All you get is 12MPG??
In the city yes.

Isn't that normal for a 3.5?


Wow, not for me. I get ~17mpg combined. I've had a few tanks wehere I did primarily city driving, and had to fill slightly earlier, but nothing that dramatic.

I would bet your poor mileage can be attributed to using 87. The 3.5 requires 92 minimum - I had a bad knock and bad mileage before I learned this. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />
