When I drive to and from work (lots of lights and stop signs), I get low 20 mpg's. I drove all interstate the other day at 78 or 79 mph and got 30 mpg. I'm not tuned and I've seen even better fuel economy with tunes (likely leans them out a bit).

My 2005 baby t gets 33mpg on my commute: 80%HWY/20% City.

50/50 it drops down to 28-30mpg

I used to get 36-37mpg on my communte with the horrible Pirelli P6 tires but it has droped since changing to Conti DWS. Worth the loss in my mind, I had no control in any kind of wet weather with the P6's.

It's always the same.... Basically mileage will vary, according to a Saab Northeastern Regional manger who's name eludes me at this point, told me a few years ago the average 2.0T driver will get 300-325 miles a tank without hitting reserve. That's about 23-25 mpg US. (3 Gal Reserve)

SO, lets start an oil thread :)

Yes, my daily commute consists of both city driving (stop n go) and motorway driving, and I can't break 22mpg. Now if I am driving a long distance (over 150 miles or over 240km) and can hit 400 to 450 miles per tank or 27 miles per gallon.
