I'm averaging about 36.5mpg for the 7800 miles I've had the car. I do think the car does not like stop and go driving and the mpg in stop and go is way lower than I'd expect based on highway mileage. But, if I'm in city driving at lower speeds (30-40mph) but don't have to stop a lot I can actually get near 40mpg and sometime better -- around town. OTH, if I am in stop and go the mileage can drop into the low 20's. I suspect the mapping in these situations causes over enrichment and I wonder if the 5sp manual is any different than my 6sp DCT...
