I think I get about 20 MPG on my 90 with 2.5NA, MOD LT77, 1.6 transfer case, and 7.50R16C tires.... of course my math could be wrong, because I have a km odometer.

Does anyone know of an iphone app that will log this kind of info, but let me enter the data in mixed units, gallons and KM?

Keep in mind the speedos are always off. Make sure you use GPS or a calibrated speedo for the mileage calls.
