All work done at dealer, Oil is Pennzoil 5W30
Mileage: City 25.+ MPG Suburban 28.+ MPG Freeway at @65 MPH, 33.+ MPG High Speed @102 MPH avg 28.8 MPG
On the high speed section I drove the first 100 miles at 70 MPH and for the next 300 miles I never went less than 90 MPH and at times over 115 MPH. After the first 100 miles a guy with a ton of antenna and all kinds of stuff on his dash board blew past me. I hooked up with him for the next 300 miles I would let him get about a quarter mile or more in front of me. The only time I slowed down was for traffic. At times cars got between him and I and I would have to go like a bat out of hell to catch him. That's when I was going over 115+ MPH. I finally had to stop for gas as the fuel warning light was on. The car rode rock solid, no float, no lift, no sway. The car rode smooth. Surprisingly the tach never went to high. I don't remember what the tach numbers were but I remember being surprised at how relatively low they were for that high of a speed.
On the freeway I usually start looking for gas around 410 to 420 miles.
My oil changes are at no charge from my dealer as long as I own the car. Its a new dealership and I was the first car they sold.

So I take it you love your Elantra, correct? ;-)
I am not surprised at your report having owned 3 Elantras since 1993 the most recent being a 2002 EGT.
