The problem is I don't think I could hypermile a whole tank considering the addictive nature of this engine's power and responsiveness. You really don't buy this car for the fuel economy, but it certainly seems you can easily get well over 20 MPG with these cars! I'm kind of pissed off that we have to pay the gas guzzler tax since if it were EPA rated at 23 MPG highway (certainly attainable with the M3) there would be no penalty.
I believe the rating has to be above 22.5 combined mpg (not highway) for a car to be exempt from gas guzzler tax

You are correct about 22.5 mpg but I think it's highway because my STI didn't have the gas guzzler tax and it's rated at 23 highway:

This week with regular driving I'm averaging 18 mpg... Thats several miles of street driving and 70 to 80 miles of round trip commute 5 days a week.... Mixed highway speeds and sitting in traffic.

If I'm on the gas a lot I get around 16 to 17 mpg.

If I try to hyper mile... The best mpg i got on a full tank was 22mpg with this commute... But that was just agonizing
