Just went through my first tank of gas on my 05 ZX3 with a 2.0L that i just got.I averaged 28 mpg shifting between 2000-3000 rpm.I drive it about 20 miles one way to work mostly highway.I did notice something that i have nevernoticed on any other car that i have owned.Most cars when you fill them up it takes a few miles for the needle to start moving off of F but this things starts moving when you get about 10 miles on the trip odomiter?

i have a 2005 zx4 and i fill as much as i can get in to tank shake the rear end y pushing the finder put in a little more repeat a few times i get about i.5 gallons more into tank and usually i get about 50 - 70 miles before the needle moves . i had some one tell me that it was not a good idea to do that but i can get about 50 or so miles more per tank. my average is about 28.5 to 30. mpg highway / city. i get about 34 - 36 on the highway . i am pleased with my results
