By the way, the reason I'm asking is that I've seen a recent improvement in gas mileage as a result of some tuning. Just wondered if I'm getting close to "normal".

Here's a fresh data point. I just filled my near-stock 2.0L with D-Jetronic after driving exclusively in the city, with no attempt to try to maximize fuel economy (i.e. I did plenty of fairly hard accelerations). Mileage was 219.7, it took 9.36 gallons = 23.46 mpg. I'm pretty sure that if I drove so as to maximize fuel economy, I could get around 26 to 28 mpg. In flat highway driving (~ 75 mph), probably 30+ mpg.

My 1.7 almost always gets ~24mpg city. PO (friend of mine) said his only road trip in it yielded about 35.

My 73 1.7 seems to get somewheres between 32-35 mpg on the highway. Hovering about 90 mph, wailing away nicely in 5th gear - road trip also.
Tuned pretty well, with weenie little 34 ICTs - I've had lawnmowers with bigger carbs.
