yes i have measured it with actual gallons used and I have kept record on www.fuelly.com as well. Since i have bought the car i have averaged 33 mpg and that is a strong mix of street driving as well

Yes, I do. I "jumped" some 5000 km but it is almost all here.

2012 SE
DCT

Varying speeds between 55-75 mph on 196 miles of almost pure highway driving with some stops for tolls, I can usually average 41-43 mpg consistently. There is only one portion going South towards New York that I ever need to pull the car out of 6th gear and down into 5th for about half a mile and even then I can sometimes stay in 6th gear if my rpms are high enough for the torque to work.

2014
6sp auto with the sportshift
titanium handling package

early fall (bought new oct 2013)
60mph/37mpg (driving across the upper peninsula, all flat)
70/32mpg
75/30
77/31.7
Driving Lansing to Mackinac elev. change, 860' to 594', quite a bit varied elev while driving.

Winter mileage
17-inch wheels with 235's
used to be:
70/32 from flint to lansing (+40' in elev)
70/35-37 from lansing to flint (-40'in elev)

just had first oil change (put in mobil 1)
70/30.5 lansing to flint yesterday evening (15)
72/29.8 flint to lansing this morning (1F)
these include <10 miles of city driving on each 65 mile leg.

I've also noticed that 5miles of city driving, following 50-55miles of freeway, will knock the average mpg down 3-4mpg quick. according to the dash computer

and my dash comp reads 0.5-1mpg higher than calculating with fill ups and the trip odometer

I've been really dissapoint with the mpg of this car

Saw this after 10 miles with the cruise control set at 60 the whole way. Went through one town where the speed limit dropped to 50mph. Slightly hilly terrain.

With my 2013 SE HB manual, roof racks, and snorkel delete with a K&N, I get at best 36 mpg on a 30 min highway only drive between 55 and 70 mph (part of my daily commute). I note my mileage drops off as my rpm gets near 3K (70 mph). My roof racks are knocking it back 2 or 3 best I can figure. Damn thing needs a 6th gear. This was at 32 degrees on relatively flat ground...I get a bit better when it is warmer. This is with 87 octane. I have messed around with premium and don't think it made a difference. Hard to test this stuff as you need to be control all of the variables to make any kind of a scientific statement.

the 40-50 degrees between 30 and 70-80F will have a huge affect on your economy as well

Zero'd the mpg on the computer and did the last half of my commute this evening. Speed varied from 55-65; I only went the speed limit. Was as high as 42 and change and ended up at the end of ~30 miles at 36.5. 2013 5-speed, snorkel delete, K&N, and a Yakima roof rack. Was running Sunoco premium 93 for this run. Outside temp was 37 and there was little wind. The car is SO sensitive though to speed changes when you do this; one slight incline or increase to pass and it will drop a few mpg and is v. hard to gain back. Also, its all about RPM; at 2.5K (65 mph) it does great but once you get upwards of 3K (70mph), it starts to drop off.
