It really depends on how you drive. Check the owners manual for the city and highway guidelines and then assume you will get much closer to the lower number (except if cruising on the highway). If you are planning a lot of spirited driving on B roads, you will probably do a bit less than the city mpg.

With the weight of the Mondial, most gas consumption occurs during accellerations - so if you are accellerating that weight around, especially quickly, that takes a lot of energy. Conversely, it is common to cruise at say, 65 - 70 mph for long periods of time and get well over 20mpg on a trip where you are holding one speed with little throttle movement (so no hills or mountains!).

I normally drive 110 miles to my other house around 6 gallons, speed 79 miles per hour, and a little faster, depend on conditions, just flat highway.
