39.73 MPG! I Think Its Finally Broken In

11.2 Gallons of Costco gas and 445 miles! 18 miles remaining on the tank.

Reno (65 miles mixed driving)
Reno to San Jose via 395 S to Hwy 88 and 8500 ft elevation mountain pass, Hwy 99 to I-5 to 580 to 680 to 280 (260 miles)
120 more miles of commuting with a bit of bay area stop & go traffic
= 445 miles

28,000 miles on the 2012 Titanium. Mileage has steadily improved in the last 6000 miles with every tank hitting 350 or more.

Generally drive the maximum speed I can - its a rare day to get above 75mph in bay area freeways but I'm never in the slow lane doing 55 or 60mph unless constrained by traffic.

It's a good feeling. I was logging 39-41mpg on a 1500 mile road trip from Florida to Texas. The 16" wheels and fog delete option help a little. Ok, so it wasn't an option lol

I hit 41mpg once coming from the state up north (only there to watch NCAA Tourney) back to Ohio. It was an exciting day.

If you guys can keep it under 70mph on the freeway you should see 40mpg no problem. I set the cruise at 68mph and count the money I'm saving in my head...haha.

Three tanks and a flat 38 miles per average. Driving 58 mph to work and back with some in town. Probably a 80/20 split. I'm very happy with the mileage.

18 miles left? wouldn't that be low enough for the fuel light to come on?

I hope to get numbers like these soon. I'm moving out of the congestion of Toronto where I'm lucky to get 25mpg in stop and go in and around this drivers joke of a town.
