After 12B37 and my second oil change at around 11000 miles I started seeing 350-375. Then after my third oil change at 16000 I saw a jump to 375-400 miles per tank. And now, sitting at about 20000 miles on the clock I've seen three tanks in a row of over 400 miles per tank, and this tank (if it stays on course) is calculating a 475 mile tank of gas (which is my best yet). I am loving this car more and more and it appears to be settling into a good groove.
Plus one on this, my mileage kept increasing for several thousand miles and has settled in, I can easily do 450 miles plus on a long highway only trip, But...a tank in town and its no where close to that....likely closer to 275-300 depending on weather and traffic and the weight of my foot.
