That's 22.37miles per Imperial gallon or 18.6miles per US gallon. I may as well be driving my Safari van. There's another 76kms on the new tank of gas and the gas gauge needle is almost on 3/4 full. I swear I can see the needle moving while I drive. This is some scary stuff.

I'm a little stunned by bosengel's claim of 27-28 while delivery driving. I have filled up 2 times in my MT ZX3 (670 miles so far) and have been seeing about 20. That's 90% city driving. Admittedly my commute is 4 miles each way so I doubt I warm up totally, and occasionally have to spend time driving around the block to find parking when I get home.

Bradak, I haven't been worrying too much about it yet because my understanding is that during the first 1,000 miles of break-in your numbers can't be expected to approach the EPA numbers.

Our unit has about 24000 miles on it. Mileage seems to be between 23-26 miles per gallon. Driving is mixed - suburban & interstate. The college age daughter is usually in this car.
