I haven't recently but overall I'm satisfied with my mileage now that the car's broken in.

Most of the time, my tanks are about 50/50 city/highway and I've been getting 31-33 MPG on those. So that's anywhere from EPA to EPA +2 for that driving profile. I don't baby the car and I push the go pedal in from time to time, so those averages are including that. Still, I generally drive for good MPGs.

On the highway, I can easily get 36-40 depending on my speed. Based on all the data I've tracked to date, it seems like Shell 93 Octane boosts my MPGs a little on the highway but there's not much difference when I'm all-city or half and half. Still trying to analyze that, thought.
