I feel like the ia are going to make a bad impression on other drivers... Getting high mpg means driving very slow.... Lol....

I got 42.5 mpg average for a tank two weeks in a row before we dropped into the high 20s. Now I'm getting around 39 mpg average per tank.

I reset my MPG's on every fill up and I usually average from 38 to 41 mpg (70% hwy and 30% city). I drive 75 mph when I drive on the hwy. I have a 6 speed manual, though.

43-48 mpg in spring/summer. 38-40 mpg in winter. This car doesn't like the cold. Just like any other car I guess but I never tracked gas mileage in my old car.

I've only been averaging 29 on this tank according to the computer. Lot of city driving though...And some spirited driving. I've been meaning to figure gas mileage at a fill up but I don't remember to write down the mileage since there's no tripometer (that I can tell).

About 51 highest, most constantly see about 42-44 with lion's share on the freeway. My commute is 54 miles each way, with the trip home often in significant stop and go.

69.5mpg doing 60 consistently with a little semi truck following action.
Usual 60mph runs with the AC off ( in the far right lane of course ) result in mid 50's - low 60's.

One day i want to crack 70, but it's easier said than done.
Oh yeah, my car is a manual and i've been hypermiling various cars for 13 years.

City driving fuel economy is much lower - in the 30's-40's, hence the lower average.

69.5 mpg is unreal...I don't think I will ever see these numbers with my driving habits.
The most I think I've ever seen is 55 mpg under ideal driving conditions that includes 70 degree outside temperature and predominantly highway driving at 55-60 mph.
As I mentioned in my other post, the gas mileage drops significantly when the outside temperature is below freezing. Like 5-10 mpg lower than the average. I'm still averaging 42 mpg overall and I'm quite happy with that.
