I picked up a 2012 se hatch with sport package in blue candy last friday for 16500 OTD with 17113 miles on it...and since i drive alot for work....

anyway I've put 1387 miles on it in one week.

when i bought it I put the tire psi at 40 all the way around and on the highway keep it at 55 mph, use cruise constantly, never accelerate quickly (under 2k rpms) and after 1300 miles it claims i'm getting

44.5 MPG I do probably 60% highway

it was showing 49.2 but i got caught in non moving traffic for almost an hour today and it dropped, i would have shut it off, but I live in Florida and I needed the A/C.
