My garmin gps said avg 68 mph and I used cruise controll for the most of it.top speed of 86
Just a side note the dash mpg was under by 2 mpg for the most part but still pretty close.
That was strictly hwy driving I filled up and pulled right back on the hwy

There is not one for 2013 so I will post it here.

1. 26.9 MPG 265.2 Miles 9.85 Gallons 56-321
2. 21.7 MPG 159.5 Miles 7.36 Gallons 321-480
3. 32.6 MPG 341.0 Miles 10.46 Gallons 480-822
4. 32.8 MPG 324.6 Miles 9.90 Gallons 822-1146

I really think on my first fuel up the pump clicked off before it was full. I do not keep pumping after it clicks. I still hope I am in the break in period as I have almost no city driving and getting no where near highway MPG. My previous car got within 1-2 MPG of the highway rating. Still I am saving $20-25 a week in gas right now.

How fast were going?

Some of that looks like city driving as 21.7mpg on the highway would demand a cruising speed near 100mph.

For my round trip route I do
35 MPH for 4.0 miles
45 MPH for 11.0 miles
55 MPH for 12.0 miles
60 MPH for 25.0 miles
65 MPH for 12.0 miles
There are 6 traffic lights and 6 stop signs for the round trip.

The first two I know had to be affected by excessive idling but not from city driving. The first fuel up would have had ~6 hours of idling with AC on. The second would have had around ~2 hours idling with 1 hour with the heater set to max to help dry tint.

I have 900 miles on mine and am averaging ~32 mpg with both highway and city driving; more highway than city. On my highway commute only, I have seen had up to 35.5 mpg. Also important to note is that I have a Yakima roof rack system on my car but do have the fairing which helps the mpg. I also have a K&N drop-in filter and a manual. I typically drive with the cruise on as much as possible on the highway and don't speed; my speeds are between 60-70.
