thats pretty high isnt it? my friend has a wrx and he gets under 20...rjc1976 said:I've been getting around 23-24 mpg. That's on a 5 speed Aero with 17" wheels and a fair amount of AC usage.

After 2K miles on the 92x I've begun to regularly shift at ~3.5-4K RPM. On mostly long drives I've seen almost 350 miles/tank getting 27.6 MPG. Normal everyday driving ~24-25 MPG...jon_s said:For the first few tanks during breakin, 23-24.5MPG. Shifting at 3.5k-ish, cruising around 2k-2.5k. This just didn't seem quite right in the car, so I gave up on driving like a grandma and started shifting at 4-4.5k, cruising at 2.5k-3k. Keep it in third at 3.5k on winding back roads. Next tank, to my surprise, 26.7 MPG on exactly the same roads, with identical use of AC. Half backroad/city plus half highway. Maybe this engine is more efficient at higher engine speeds? Anybody else notice this? This is only my first tank post-breakin, so hopefully its not just a fluke. :cheesy:
