That's all highway, though.
I had a 93 and in my mostly city commute got mid-high 20s, which is still good.
My new 08 is getting 27-28mpg, maybe even a touch better than my 93. Not bad.

My new 2008 Miata MX-5 Sport PHdT (5-speed manual) averaged 31.9 mpg first 1775 miles in/around town.
Next 5905 miles on a long vacation, overall gas mileage was 35.6 mpg, with highs of over 41 on two consecutive tankfuls in the mountains of Colorado, and lows of 32.5 over two consecutive tanks at 70/75 mph heading home through the desert.
(All mileages carefully measured/calculated by a certified math nerd.)
I think it would take evil intent and/or devious planning to get less than 30 mph with this car.

Not really, I have an all-city commute, and rarely get out on highways. My mileage is more like 27-28mpg.
A lot depends on where you drive, DC traffic stinks.

My 2007 softtop with automatic transmission got 28mpg in town and 34-38 on the highway. I decided to purchase a 2008 PRHT with an automatic and feared what the mileage might be since the 2007 was so unbelievable. The new 2008 gets 29MPG in town and 36-40 on the highway on two trips of 2,500 and 3,500 miles. Unbelievable, I love this car. And yes, I fill it to the top and do know how to divide. Ohio to Colorado and Colorado to Oregon and back to Colorado.
