Fuel Mileage?
 
Just curious what kind of city/hwy/mixed driving mileage you guys are getting out of your ST's? I'm wanting to get one, but if I'm spending an extra $100 on fuel over my SES (29-30mpg normally), I'll need to budget accordingly, maybe get the ST2 instead of the ST3 like I'd really like to make up for it.

dont remember where i read it but someone was saying that when realy getting on the gas he was getting about 8mpg but normal city driving was around 25 dont remember anything for highway...

8mpg sounds about right for a safe tune on a turbo car. Boost eats fuel to survive.

25mpg in the city is actually very good for what these cars weigh. Surprising, actually.

Still wondering about highway averages if anyone has driven a full tank out on a road trip.

One of the major thing's I don't like is the smallest 12.5 gal. tank. Whats up w/ that? Emmisions or cafe standards? at least 2+ gals. would get some range.

help keep the weight down maybe? not enough room in their design for a bigger tank?

Typically I see 30mpg during my normal daily commute, I drive 60miles a day bask roads and highway. I actually get better millage on the back roads doing 10 over but with the power the car has I can run 50 in 6th.
I also have sat in stop and go traffic and it wasn’t horrible probably around 25mpg.
But your millage will just depend on how you drive it, keep the rpm’s down and out of the boost.

I've put 1000 miles on my st now and I'm getting 27.1mpg.

If any of you add a K&N air filter, I'm sure it would go higher.

I drive 60 miles round trip and WHEN I stay out of the boost I am getting the same (27mpg) combined. I have not had a chance to make an extended road trip. I run at about 76mph to and from work.
