Well I never wait till 50 miles left, I drive way too much to chance it. I can tell you over the last 64,500 miles (in only 22.5 months) I have averaged 33 mpgs. I drive a similar route every week and have almost always gotten 33mpg. I have the big 3; CAI, tune and exhaust. Lowered 1.5" and run a 17x7.5 wheel that weighs 16.5lbs ea. Tires are larger then stock but overall tire/wheel combo is the same weight as stock 15" steel wheels and tires. I also live at and drive at about 2200' above sea level and use 91 octane fuel. I know for a fact that if I were to put on a set of super lightweight 15's and run a LRR rite I would be at or above 38-40mpg. i drive about 80% highway and 20% city.

lol well that is the best most accurate way to see your mpgs. the dash readout is only within 4mpg +- or so.

well, (sorry for the metric) i filled up last week, and i had about 530km on it before filling up again, i was at 1/8th left. So i roughly got about 7.9L/100km. I drive 55km to work and back, so i do 110km a day, i use about 1/8 or less of a tank one way. I take back roads, and very little city streets, i do 90kmh on the back roads, which is what experts call the optimal speed for fuel efficency... sorry if all this metric is confusing.. too tired to convert it :(
