The V6 wants to be on the highway. Period. It is not happy (economy wise, anyway) on shorter trips.
I'll also say that my 2000 V6 gets better highway mileage than my 2002 V6, by 2-4 MPG easy. And that's with one fewer gear in the autobox!
On the other hand, my 1999 LPT (also an auto) got the best of all, returning over 30 consistently on almost any highway trip.
The best I've seen in a V6 was when I led the caravan from Boston to Hilton Head for SOC 1998, in a pre-production V6 9-5. On I-95, in the heat of the southern summer, A/C blasting, and 80-85 MPH, both SID and calculations got me over 30 MPG... My 2000 has gotten close to that, but the 2002 never did...
