Cool

Just bought a 2007 SES with an automatic. Decided on the auto because of the stop and go on I-45 in Houston. Averaging 24.7 in town and 27 on roadtrips. I do run between 80-100mph most of the time(Hence the leadfoot name) so I am pretty happy with my mpg.

I envy you, guys. lol

Mine does 18mpg, combined.
On the highway does no more than 24.

In my country all fuel are E20 93oct and the addition of 20% ethanol contributes for low mpg. I usually run 50% 93oct and 50% 100oct.

ZX4 D20, mods are:
Cosworth IM
SWR Cams 280/280 degree 0.380/0.380
OBX header
2.5" exhaust
SCT tune (Tom)

Also I have a close ratio gear box (FD 4.06 and 0.88 5th).

Still averaging above 35 - easy commuting and some easy highway.

2011 SES Sedan 5spd with 17" wheel package

Averaging spirited city/hwy right at 30mpg. Winter is coming so that will drop, but I'm not expecting a big loss.

I haven't seen 30+ mpg in a while but I'm not complaining...my daily work commute is about 5 miles round trip and have been getting 27ish lately. Which I dont always drive economically so that's decent for mostly city.

I'm getting 26 MPG as I am putting back and forth to class(Pretty much city driving), but highway driving I have seen as high as 36 MPG. That was when I was seeing just how far I could get out ofr a gallon of gas. My average highway that I see is 34 MPG though, I'm very impressed with my car.

FINALLY happy with my MPG! Last tank, 11.85 gallons filled up I went 439 mile for an average of 37mpg! This was possible due to the Ultragauge changing my driving style and actually knowing what works to get the best fuel economy.

Driving was mixed, about 85% highway at 60-65mph (less than ideal conditions, passenger, a/c occasionally, holiday luggage, traffic etc.) and 15% city. First complete tank driving with the ultragauge and I couldn't be happier! I can definitely improve my driving style to squeeze out a few more miles if I wanted.
