Database What kind of MPG are you getting?

Ok guys. This is more or less for referance purpouses only. Just wanted to get a database together of what kind of milage people are getting. Next time you fill up go ahead and jot down what your milage was and then post it up here on the poll so we can see how people are doing.

When you do the poll be sure to post a reply as well, and include your milage was and what if any mods you have on the vehicle and total miles on the vehicle. Goal is to eventually get this stuck so it can be viewed/posted easily for future reference.

We would have ruled it as an accidental shooting but you reloaded... twice.

I voted once for 24-26 and once for 26-28. Because Excel tells me I'm averaging 26.221, and that's so close I didn't feel comfortable only leaving myself in the 26-28 range

Anyway, ATX with a hair over 27,500. My last 2-3 fillups have been MPG because I don't get her out on the highway much, mostly city driving. Also I have a lead foot that I TRY to keep in check, but I struggle at times! Mods in my profile.

I'm very pleased with my mileage actually, considering my habits and transmission. Also, I'm impatient and frequently running late (although I get places on time, guess how?!) So even though I don't like to I tend to leap off the line when I catch red lights, stuff like that. Worst I've EVER gotten was 19, and I beat the snot out of the car that tank, did everything wrong possible.

I've figured it out for every tank for 28,000 km. I get 36- 37 when I do mostly highway. 32 combined highway town, long highways trips I've gotten a personal best of 44.1 mpg. On a 2000 km trip to the mountains I averaged 41 mpg. Not too shabby, other than my zx2 would get that without trying
