1 full tank down - 26.7. Mostly city driving, but city here in Detroit means a good bit of divided highway.

I was hoping for better. We bought the ST to replace a Geo Prism with a 1.8L. I figured the mileage would drop a little bit, but we were getting a reliable 30-32 around town with the Geo. Maybe I can console myself that the ST has lower tailpipe emissions, even though it burns more dino urine.

It does get considerably better mileage than my Probe. I struggle with the Probe to get 22 around town. But I knew the Probe mileage would suck when I bought it, lo those many years ago.
