2003 Venture LT AWD, 68,000 miles. Normal around town is 16-17 MPG. On a recent trip almost got 30 MPG. Secret was keeping the speed between 55-60 on the highway.

2002 Venture LS - I use this van solely for business, running over 30,000 miles per year. All the middle and rear seats have been removed and the space is now occupied with business cargo. I recently turned 200,000 miles on it, and I'm still averaging 20mpg which includes city and highway driving.

Warmer months: 21-27
If it isn't windy and I'm driving from Denver (through Wyoming, UT, and Idaho) to Bend, Oregon, I can average 27mpg with speeds of 81-84mph (but usually average 25 with normal conditions). I once got 31mpg highway driving from Bend, OR to Seattle, but the speed limits are much lower. Never got above 72mph (most of the times, my speed was 68 or so most of the time).

We always seem to get 25 mpg's with our 04 Venture van we used to always get 23 with our old 99 Venture so it was a nice surprise to see the mpg's go up with the 04

2000 v6: this baby is now 12 years old and I get 25mpg every time I test. That's combined 55mph and city.
