I'm just curious... I tend to "get on it" a LOT, so I find myself at the pump very often.. :( my MPG is awful, but it's to be expected with my "spirited" driving. :D

So, everyone...what's your average MPG?

I also find myself getting on it ALOT, but thats why I bought it.. I certainly didn't buy this thing to save on gas money..

The great thing about it is one minute you can be rolling down the highway getting 29mph the next... 11mpg.. If I drove like a normal human being and didn't go WOT on every chance that I get, I can get about 21.5mpg which is actually better then my 4 cylinder Audi..

getting 14+ right now... way better than I expected... If it gets too good I will make more mods and keep my foot in it longer... Wouldn't want to mistake this for a commuter car.

I get 5-8 mpg city and 12-15 mpg highway if I'm a good boy and keep my foot off of the loud pedal. When I'm bad, I get 0.3 mpg and stop frequently at Chevron stations....

Just returned from a civilized 1400 mile trip... cruise speeds 70 - 80 mph with a few passes in the 120 mph category. Lots of 5th gear in the mountains. 28.1 overall average for the trip. :D

My average is 19.7 and that's running the Autobahn at 90mph, most of the time + some small amount of city driving. :)
