Make sure that the transmission is shifting properly and it's going into overdrive with torque converter clutch lock up. If not, it'll kill your gas mileage. At expressway speeds (60 to 70 MPH) your engine should be running at around 1200 to 1500 RPMs. If not, it's a transmission, as described above, problem. HTH. -Jim
