    I posted earlier about city gas mileage being very low and mistakenly
    posted "S70" it is V70 GLT.
    what is the experience of others on city gas mileage and is there
    anything that will improve it. I get only about 15 mpg in town and
    sometimes 14

    also question re: tires
    I looked at replacement tires recently that are V-rated and
    Performance level and that is what is recommended for the car.
    Someone told me I didn't need V-rated and could do something lower but
    the Costco tire guy said that getting a lower rated tire would reduce
    my gas mileage

    is this true? I mostly drive in town but do a few long trips every
    year

    thanks
