36 MPG @ 62 MPH would be fine by me - better than say 30 MPG @ 75

I get about 28mpg in town, and 36-38 on the highway. I have found that I get better MPGs(and performance) out of 93 octane.

Just voted.
When going out of town, I usually get around 26-27mpg.
In town (heavy traffic) I tend to get 15 mpg, with some tanks going as low as 13. Since that's where most of my driving (time-wise) is done, I voted 10-20.

Edit:
In more familiar units for some (including me): just under 8.8l/100km out of town. 15 to 18l/100km in town.

The mpg for the tank of gas from the dealership is not accurate as I don't know for sure if the trip miles were on the tank.

Rounded to the nearest 10th.
Fill up---MPG
0---------????
1---------24.4
2---------25.7
3---------Still driving on this tank.

I up shifted a little bit later on fill up #2 (between about 2750 and 3000 rpms vs around 2250 give or take 200 rpms.
Since I have owned my 2013, I have gotten about 30 mpg, usually I get between 29-33mpg. Solely depends on amount of highway driving.

I try and drive like an old woman and I never race around, I am past that stage in my life (31 years old) and I have owned too many fast cars to care at this point.

Mostly Hwy driving

I get above 35 every tank. I drive like an old man (as my kids tell me). Shift under 2000 rpm. I get my speed fix riding my dirt bike. My 2010 has 110,000 miles.

Mixed driving i get 29-30.5 pretty consistantly. With traffic and some warm up/defrost time this winter I've been closer to 25-26. A straight highway trip will get 35+. I am running bone stock other than putting in a new set for Autolite coppers.

My 2010 used to get about 5mpg more last year/40k miles ago (54k now).

I have about 100 miles, 80+ highway each day, with good weather i average 34+mpg.

Mind you, i redline it at least once per day, trail brake most of my corners and Rev it hard, without spinning tires, from stop lights. Plus rally edition on my dirt road (3rd gear, 3500rpm, 40mph, sliding the tail around). Without the highway mileage it's like 29mpg.

However, i don't speed more than 5+, do whatever i can (avoid traffic without being an ahole as much as possible-until it isn't) to maintain steady rpms at speed, pulse and glide, use cruise when I'm lazy, drive in 5th gear at 40mph, 4th at 25+mph, avoid tram lining and wet spots on the road, and double clutch down shift to keep fuel cut and the engine spinning where i want it (no gas to spin it back up) at. Every. Deceleration. I. Make.

Ever. Lol

Check out hyper miling.

If i try i get 40+ at 50-60mph, still (42 last i tried, 45+mpg 40k miles ago look).

Most of this is as reported by the dash but i also data log with torque and regularly check receipts the old school way usually when i notice mpgs dropping. Dash is mostly accurate in my experience.
