RonMaiden Best we've seen is about 320 a tank but we see very little highway and a lot of short in town trips but we have a Denver to Iowa trip planned this suimmer so I'm a bit excited to just see over 400 miles to the tank.

Nice work!

Macsleuth Getting between 650km and 690km usually. Just filled with premium to see if that helps mileage, so far, not really. Going to try the quicker acceleration trick next. Mostly hi-way driving for me. 403m to 428m. Approx.

Creamsicle 362 is the best I've seen yet, @ 5000 miles

For DCT auto owners, out your car in sport mode when accelerating to get up to speed and into a high gear quickly, and then drop it into D. Wasnt this a reason for Overdrive shutoff buttons (for city driving, back when gas milage was not a concern) in older cars, (as well as towing etc..)

PratoN I let my brother drive my car last week. DTE after a fillup went from like 460 to 380.
