I don't usually let any of my cars drop below half, so I'm not sure what my mileage is on a full tank. I keep a watch on the fuel economy meter thing, though, and I've never seen it drop below 27 mpg in mostly "city" driving. (live in a very small town, definitely not a city..hah)

I generally get about 22 mpg doing typical city stop and go and about 34 mpg with all highway driving. Recently my mix has become a little more stop and go and I'm only averaging about 26-27 mpg overall. sad.gif

I averaged 22 city with the XD, but my HD averages 26. The HD is still factory though.

I usually get about 29-30 mpg during normal driving to work and my girlfriends house. That's a mix of some highway, local, and city streets. Pure highway driving I'll get around 35-36 mpg.

WEll, the winter-mix gas is here. Wife drove the car all last week and her normal average of 33ish dropped to 30.9.

Actually, I set the cruise on 70, and didn't slow down much at all.

Liz...40.2mpg is amazing. Best I've ever done on a long pure highway trip is maybe 37.

My highway best (read: Arizona to Indiana) was about 36MPG in the Elantra.

I did make half a tank though on 260 miles, and being that a usual half tank fill-up took about 6 gallons in the Elantra, that's right around 43MPG. The actual fill-up was only 5.2 gallons, but the needle was barely at full, so I assume it cut the filling early.

So far with the Tiburon, I have about 240 miles on 3/4 of a tank of gas. Pretty much right where the Elantra was getting me. However, that's on factory setup. As of tonight, I converted the factory intake to cold air, so maybe see some improvements soon.

i range anywhere from 23-28mpg most of the time, but if i'm trying to save money and take it easy i can get about 30-33, and i made it all the way to 37 on an all highway road trip, my cruise was set about 70-80 depending on how many cars where around


--------------------

I could do that... but it can wait untill tommarow.

First fill-up in the Tibby turned 11.9 gallons on 264.2 miles. My driving is all city driving and 22.2MPG meets the sticker mileage. Not too bad for factory performance settings and first tank. I'm presuming it will increase as the engine breaks in more and as I have the vehicle modified for more efficiency (most of which is actually done now).

My wife has been driving the GT lately in mostly short trips (1-5 miles) and have been getting around 20-22 mpg for the past few months. We should be making a trip this Thanksgiving and hopefully the 30+ mpg will make me few better.
