30mpg sounds like an average number.. probably doesnt help that i have a lead foot time to time.. next time i fill up im going to drive a lot more fluidly, rather then on and off the gas. also how many of you have cruise control, and how many use it for their daily drive? i do not have it, so i wanna know where i stack up with those who do. also i should mention i have no engine mods. All i have done is change the oil to full synthetic and replaced my air filter less then 5k miles ago

last fillup i had I did the math and got 32.6mpg. Id say 75% highway driving on lightweight 15"wheels w/snow tires. Stock SES wheels are going back on this week so I am expecting to lose 1-2 mpg

Far as mods go I am 100% stock with 5 speed manual trans and I shift ~3000-3500 rpms with the occasional 5-6000 rpm shift while merging on to the highway. Average speed on highway is 75-80mph

The 5 speed with 15'' wheels (the 16s and 17s have different gear ratios) gets is BEST mileage between 35 and 45 mph. On a flat road, I set the cruise for a few miles at speeds of 35, 40 and 45 ... 35 and 40 I was getting 50 on the display.

Last tank I went 399 miles (gauge said 16 miles to go when I got gas). I bought 11.8 gallons to fill up. Should be 33.8 mpg. I drive 56 miles one way to work. 95% of it at 75mph. When I do make short trips for lunch or whatever, I drive it pretty hard.
