Gas mileage on 87 D21 2.4

Curious to what kind of gas mpg I should be getting out of my 87 2.4 5speed without ac.? Im getting right now around 250-270 on a tank of gas which seems kinda low but could be normal. I recenently replaced the fuel filter and air filter and have 235/75/15 tires on it.

Should be between 18 and 22, though I've seen people say they get as much as 28 on the highway.
