MPG for '87 Turbo Coupe

Bought a nice '87 Turbo Coupe last month, 23,000 miles. Ran a tank of gas, over 22 Gallons, through it and got a dissapointing 19.49 mpg. Is this what I can expect? It was mostly around town, but I sure thought it would get better than this.

Yeah, about 20 around town and 25-28 on the highway is what I would expect. Like anything, max the vac gauge while driving and get more. If you use the turbo (no vacuum ), a lot less.

[EDIT] The Feds claim a lot less:

Thanks David, I guess it's ok then. It IS a lot of fun to drive and doesn't ride too bad either .
