    I believe I am getting worse mileage than most others w/bpu @ approx 20-22 mpg...24 if I drive longer trips (upwards of an hour or more).

    I've gotten 28 on the interstate. 24 on a regular highway with some "spirited" passing, and I usually get around 15 to 16 in town (but I think that's more because of the way I drive in town )

    I would average 17-18 around town, and could easily do 26 mpg on the highway in the hills of PA.

    I was getting 17-19 in town with a heavy foot.. never have had her on the highway to see what kinda mileage I would get. Looking forward to some trips in it to see how she does.

    I got 25.5 mpg on a regular basis in the Stealth driving back and forth to work 25 miles each way. 70% of it was NOT highway.

    Lots of curves and hills though. Had Mitsu not been stupid with the short 5th gear in the NA's I could likely have seen 28mpg in daily driving duties.

    I used to get much better gas milage in my old N/A (26-28mpg on average), but in the TT I'm lucky if I manage to get 21-22mpg.
