I've been using my car to delivery drive, since picking up the car at the end of November I've averaged over 70 miles a day since. Car is a manual.

As other have stated this car is very sensitive to throttle position get the higher mileage. I've seen tanks as low as 19 MPG pure city (pen and paper) and as high as 27 in the same conditions with a lighter foot. The type of driving this car goes through is not standard, it's constant stop and go traffic as well and turning off and on the vehicle upwards of 50 times a day. Fifteen to twenty 1-4 mile trips throughout the day.

On the other end of the spectrum here when I am not working and am casually driving I've seen city mileage hover low 30's with mild traffic and decent luck on lights.
