Part of the "game" is what kind of gas you're burning. If you have a car that burns 87 octane and gets 30+ MPG you're golden.
My convertible gets over 30 on the highway but gets about 26 for all around, everyday driving in the summer. In the winter it drops to about 24 but it never gets less than 20. Considering that it's made to run on regular gas I think that's pretty good.
A few more details. I drive a 2007 Dodge Sprinter, made by Mercedes but sold here under the Dodge name. It has a 6 cylinder Mercedes diesel. Empty on the highway I can get 25-27 if I'm not driving too fast, but with a full load I can still get between 18-20, 23 with a partial load. Last week I made $3800 and burned $500 in fuel. That's a pretty good profit margin, much better than my last van.

25-29 MPG on My Saturn Vue with a 5 speed.
Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
I drive a 2003 Audi A4 Quattro that averages around 22-24 mpg. I also have a 1992 Corvette that gets 22-25 mpg, which just amazes me, since it has a 300 HP V-8. Both drink only premium though.
My wife has a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica that only gets around 19 mpg, and my son drives a 2000 Ford Ranger 4X4 that gets about 18 mpg.

I had a vehicle (actually, I had two in a row) that got 50 mpg, but I sold them both.

30-33 MPG in the Vibe.
I certainly don't miss the Jeep Cherokee when it comes time to fill up.

25-30 in the 94 escort
My Tahoe gets about 24 - 26. My G6 gets about 24 - 26. Which amazes me.
Will trade this space for a #1 starter.
