Some 2.2's just DO NOT get good mileage. I had a 98 S10 2.2 5 speed that the best I ever got out of it was 24mpg on the highway. Most of the time it was around 20-21mpg. I do drive hard but even highway it wouldn't get decent mileage. It got totalled and I got a 98 Sonoma 2.2 5 speed and it gets better mileage and I drive it the same as the old one. I get 24mpg pretty regularly. 26 is the best it's ever gotten. I did tune ups on both and had new cats on both and still the mileage sucked on the S10. The S10 only had about 44,000 when it got totalled. The Sonoma had 78,000 when I bought it. So it has nothing to do with the age of the engine.
