I am getting 19 in combo driving - mostly around town, some freeway.

I haven't really taken any long freeway trips, so cannot comment what that mileage is. On my first trip to THill with about 1K miles on it I think I got around 24-25 doing around 80mph. Prolly better as the engine breaks in. I now have 4K miles.

i guess i'm the only one with average of under 15 so far

4th gear on the highway
3rd and 4th on the others.

the only time i use 5th is when i'm going over 140mph..
the only time i use 6th is when i'm passing a cop. those that know my car understand.


if you're going to have it, have fun with it.

50% city/50% highway....19 MPG. 90% of time easy on the throttle going with highest gear possible for x mph for best fuel economy. 10% of time pedal to the metal for best grin factor. :coo:

Since new the avg mpg is at 24.5, that's with long trips and lots of Autocrossing. Oh I'm at 31k on the odo. Got to love the economy and HP. who would have thunk.

Normally float between 19.5 and 21.0 depending on how bad the day is going and how much stress I need to relieve.....

I don't use the DIC to measure fuel mileage because it's off by about .7 - 1.1 MPG vs. actual computed mileage. I got 20.41 on my last tank that was 60% highway, 40% city. My computed average over the last 11,000 miles is 19.43.

The DIC hovers from 20.3 to 21.7.
