Think a 100 MPG round trip is possible in a Mirage?
Yes. However I wouldn't want to do it haha. Slowing down always gets you better MPG.

Going from SLC to Pendleton OR to Portland and back. I’ll give updates when I get home.

Work today was about 100 miles of driving and I got 46.9mpg. 40ish miles highway between 60-70mph, 45ish city between 35-45mph, and 15ish around 25mph.
I tried to keep the RPM under 2k for all city driving, with occasional peaks to 3k if I hit a hill or needed to accelerate a bit quicker to stay safe.
Highway was around 3-4k RPM depending on the speed and slope.
This might just be my transmission being itself, but when I got onto the highway the RPM were higher than necessary. After I got up to speed, I let off the gas completely for a second or two and slowly eased back on until I wasn't losing speed. That usually let me stay at the same speed with the engine at 500-1k RPM or so lower.
My last tank and this one were pure gas, so I'm probably down to 1-2% ethanol in my tank based on the level I get gas at.
