    they are pretty close i think. My dad does tend to get better highway then me i think. and sometimes better town. It really depends on the driving we do tho. he gets way more highway miles then i do

    From what I've read almost the same. Driving conditions and style probably has a much larger affect than driving a 1st gen vs a 2nd gen.
