My mpg hasnt changed for 8 months on my dash. Not even +/- .1

12.5 (even though I am surely getting worse than that)

I've never reset it am currently around 11,000 miles and am @ 17.3 MPG on the computer. Used to be @ 17.8 until I added the Sport cats & tune . Keep it in D4-5 or S4-5 depending on my mood.

Didn't expect to get this good MPG, but ain't complaining. I have ~$1500 on my fuel card. Super Plus Premium aka 98 RON is at $4.35 a gallon. We'll see how long it lasts.

Around 6 mpg at the tracks. Ran out of gas at middle of turn 8 at Big Willow last year.

Around 14 mpg on streets/freeways combined.

I think I hit the happy pedal with zest, and have been averaging between 18.5 and 20.2. Just picked this car up a little over a month ago now, and my autocross and track season is starting next week. So, I'm sure those consumption numbers are about to change drastically.

I get around 18-19 - average 40% city and 60% highway.

This is driving hard - not pussy footing the car.

I can easily get over 24 highway when taking it easy.

I find the mileage quite acceptable.

So for those of you who are reporting the better fuel economy numbers, perhaps you should post whet you have a 6MT or DCT.

After about 45k miles, 16.7-16.9 is my average with half freeway / half city. Nice heavy foot, especially at take off from a light. Lowest I've gone is like 16.2 mpg. DCT D 4 bars

I bought mine and got 6 mpg on the way home (no other details from that drive will be given! haha) over a 45 minute drive. Going from a 370z to this car has been eye opening in terms of behavior (handling, gass mileage, acceleration, revS!) in agressive driving. Biggest difference is it burns way more gas, but somehow the engine doesn't sound like a tractor (370z) when it is fully revd. (bahaha)
