52mpg? Hmmm, that seems hard to believe but I'll take your word until I break my new Titanium in (only 250 miles so far).

I've been having fun with it in sport mode so the 27 mpg on the trip average computer was somewhat expected. Then, I got out on a flat straight-away highway and set to cruise control 60 MPH. On the fly, I reset the computer mpg meter. Since at that point, it is only using in the current 60 mph highway cruise, I expected it to go up to at least 37. However, it was showing 33 mpg. I also wish the computer had a current mpg mode like my old '97 T&C mini-van. I love coasting downhill and watching it shoot up to 90 MPG.

Anyway, I will remain optimistic until it is broken in and do some more testing..
