I've had four tanks over 400 miles, all with my cruise control set at 73 mph for most of the trip.

I've gone as far as 469 miles on a tank. That particular tank worked out to 40.13 mpg. That's with my 5spd SE hatch.

Beta, Doug, recall the average speed on those trips? Pretty amazing mileage for 5 speeds!

It would likely need to be closer to 55-60 mph avg to get 40.92 mpg out of a 5MT, but I'm not sure.

I know my old 5mt with similar gearing would do 45 mpg at 55, and 40 mpg at about 60 mph but it was also a lighter vehicle.

On the highway I was setting the cruise at 63 in the 65 zones and 58 in the 55 zones. Local driving was at the posted limit. VERY easy on and off the gas at all times.

Just a quick note: my daily work commute is approx 50 miles round trip and is quite hilly.

Anywhere between 55 and 70 on cruise. Highway and a long back road with a 55 mph speed limit. 1 stop sign and 1 light on that road. Fill up, reset your avg mpg display then go drive down a road at 40 mph in 5th. I'd average somewhere around 60+ mpg/tank if that were my constant drive.

Best I've done in the 5MT is 36.3 mpg. Los Angeles to Las Vegas. I cruised 70 to 75 mpg.

I got over 400 miles to a tank a few times with my 5spd.

428 miles, 12.395 gal @ 34.53 mpg
415 miles, 11.501 gal @ 36.08 mpg
414 miles, 10.944 gal @ 37.83 mpg
414 miles, 11.983 gal @ 34.55 mpg


Also had a few more within 10 miles of breaking 400 per tank.

Best I seem to do is about 340 miles. Just about 100% of my driving is in town with the A/C on, though.
