2012 Ti hatchback, 6 speed DCT, 1600 miles. So far the MPG is my only knock on the car. I'm getting 21-22 in my normal commute driving. I live in Northern Virginia and most of my driving is stop and go 4 mile commute to/from work and similar distances to soccer, lacrosse, schools, stores, etc.

I've taken one long trip, the first weekend I had the car, and got 30.3 but that was the first few hundred miles on the car and up and down Western PA mountains.

For comparison, my 2002 325i (manual trans) got 19-21 around town, low 30s highway.

I'd like to see my commute MPG around 25 and highway around 35.

Anyone with similar driving patterns since an MPG increase after "break in" (whatever that means in this day and age)?
