The epa estimate does state 30mpg in mixed driving conditions as well.
I'm NOT getting 30mpg mixed though. =( I've even feather footing it too to test this. My '97 Integra got 32-34 mpg with a major lead foot. That was way back when fuel economy wasn't a major concern yet & I averaged that in winter mixed driving. Sooo... we shall see.
