I have a 1997 Contour with the manual transmission and V6. I get about
27 to 28 mpg with mostly highway driving. The car with the manual
transmission is rated at 30 mpg highway/20 city. The car with the
automatic is rated at about 29 mpg highway/19 city, so if I had a
automatic transmission, I would expect about 1 mpg less.
