Mine gets between 21-26

I have an 82 280ZX non-turbo, and it gets between 21-26 mpg, depending if I take long or short trips. It's never dropped below 20. I've driven it from 90,000 to 142,000 original miles. Sounds like you're getting decent milage.

I will agree with you, I got an '83 n/a and I am usually around 24 mpg & I got 160+ K miles.
I have gotten up to 29-30 on the highway.......... but there must have been some serious wind behind me.
Keep in mind that most of my driving is on the highway so it is pretty easy to get 450+ miles per tank.
The 280ZX Manual says 21MPG for combined driving, so 18 in the city sounds pretty normal.
I once fell under 15mpg, it was the oxygen sensor, as soon as I replaced it everything was OK again.
To check the 02 sensor, look at the green light on the computer, it should blink 12 or more times per 10 seconds at 2000 rpm. If it is not blinking change it !!!! (the sensor not the light)
Good luck
