are cannadian miles or gallons different from US ones? because that sounds ot of this world... beautiful

anyone can traslate this to US values?

Thanks

I've got a 2005 ZX3, Duratec 2.0L ATX, just over 6,000 miles on it. The sales guy stated the ridiculous number of 20,000 miles before the engine would be broken in enough to come close to the EPA rating of 34mpg that was on my sticker. (I'm getting between 28-29mpg, and spend most of my time commuting (highway) 100 miles per day). I have the poor-man's CAI so far; i.e. the cone filter on the end of the MAF tube. I've been watching my mileage pretty closely since I got the car 2 months ago, so my 28-29mpg is pretty solid. (The cai thing didn't change my mileage at all, yet.)

Wow Massive that's not bad, considering the environment the mileage is under!

I'm guessing the Canadian values are km/liter. So the MPG would be less, but I have no idea by how much.

MPG

I've been getting combine highway/city mpg of 25. My car is stock, no mods yet. It has 4000 miles on it. I bought it with 12.7 mile on the odomiter. The first 4 tanks the mpg moved around between 23 and 27, sense then it has settled down to 25. I drive agressive, but not nuts. Usually between 75-80mph on the highway, and my city/highway split is about 40%city/60%highway.
