41.8 mpg !!!!!!!!!

I went on a hour road trip to see a friend on the weekend and it was mostly highway driving. since buying this car I've been using the cruise control, drive no more then 5 MPH over limit on the highway & run the high test gas. I noticed the MPG is better with the high test over the cheap gas. Well I managed to get the MPG up to 41.8. So far I'm very pleased with the car & can't wait to do some more road trips. Pleased with my decision with the car over a truck.

I had a tire blow out on me on the other side of my state. I drove back at 55 mph at 3 am, averaged 46 MPG with the manual.

I had 42 on my way back from the NCAA Tourney in that state up North last year. I was quite excited.

at what mph? I averaged 38mpg when i took a 2 hour trip on Monday but on the way back the average went down to 34.5 as the wind was against me on the way back. I was driving anywhere from 65-75 mph on the highway. I would sya it was 85% highway and 15% city when I got back home.

I find the MPG display to be a little on the happy side. I've had mine go up to 47mgp when going just 60mph on the freeway. Start tracking your mileage on www.fuelly.com for the real world mileage. Plus, I think it's a waist to run high octane on a car meant for regular 87 octane.

I always calculate mine at the pump. The max I have gotten is 43 HWY at exactly 55 without cruise control on.At about 65-70 w/o cruise on the hwy I get about 38

High octane isn't much more price wise and I've actually noticed a increase in mpg with it. Only costing me $35 a tank plus gas in Ohio sucks since there's no regulations on gas quality so Ohio gets all the shit gas other states can't sell.
