that is really hard to say. the hard top did get better mpg, but it depended on when and where the tests were done. you should expect a stock engine, in good tune, to get between 28-32mpg. the converts were heavier and, witht he top down, were less aerodynamic. they usually got around 24-28 on the highway. city driving they both averaged around 26 or so.
