I get 12.1 as a DD and have gotten as low as 6 mpg at the track, but usually avg. around 6.5. Every 20 min session is about a 1/4 tank, she's thirsty.

9.5 to 14.7 depending on whether I have a fellow auto enthusiast next to me at the light. Highway is 20 averaging 90 and feathering down to 90 from 100.

6.7 mpg last track day.

And like a noob, I forgot to fill up the tank and had to cut short my third session. Low fuel comes on, and I think I can make it, two laps latter I had to pull off. Duh!
