i drive in the city all the time, and the worst I have ever gotten was 18 mpg the best was 21 mpg. However, I do road trip all the time and I average about 29 mpg on the open road. That has been pretty constant. I gots an auto/sport.

I've got a manual/sport, and seem to average around 22 for daily driving. When we do long trips, it goes up to about 27 - 29.

Best of 31 on a trip, and 24 right now back and forth to work, city/highway driving. Goes down when cold and idlin, I leave my remote start run for 10-15 min when cold, I like a warm car in the winter. :D Mike

i usually fill up again between 280-300 and put around 12 gallons. so that's between 23-25mpg. i do mostly highway driving to and from work, but i drive way too fast and sit in traffic often. :wink:

for those of you that know the philly area, my commute is 309/pa tpk/blue route - total 30mi each way. :x

New owner (of an '03). Only on my fourth tank of gas.

First tank: 24.5 (mixed)
Second tank: 23 (mixed; mostly town)
Third tank: 26 (mixed; mostly hiway)

Since I was getting about 15 mpg on my previous vehicle, this is like heaven. Roughly 350+ miles on less than 15 gallons...yes!
Be careful what you ask for; you just might get it.
