When I drive it to and from work I'm pushing 19 +mpg...28 mile round trip mostly urban and town driving. when I get it back after the wife has been tooling around it is usually around 17.3 or so. Her main car is a Turbo MazdaSpeed MX-5 ........take your foot out of it dear....She has this "wind 'er up and feel the turbo kick in mentality." oh well...................

Just went through my first tank (lasted me 1 week exactly) and I calculated 15.49 mpg with about 98% city driving. It has about 500 miles on it now so I expect it to get better as it brakes in.

I see all of these great numbers and it makes me want to cry. I go through a tank a week which equates to about 250 miles with a 19.5 gallon tank. So 250/19.5 =12.8 :mad: I get stuck in traffic alot so thats what i'm blaming it on for the time being...

Well I already have 8349kms (about 5010 miles) and I put in a tank of gas every other day (I travel about 250 km a day) I have been averaging 22.4 mpg. Mainly hiway driving at 120kph or 75 mph

So the miles are going on and still rides like new. Feels a little looser on the throttle meaning it accels quicker than when it was new. :Racing:

Almost time for the second oil change:Banana01:

I have filled up a few times now and i always calculate the MPG and the actual compared to the read ot is off about 1-2 MPG.

What's your average cost for a fill up? I'm sure it's less than my F250. LOL

My Trip

Well, I have not added up receipts yet for arround town But I have the results of a recent trip to RI.

The trip was mostly Highway, 10 Hours total, with about 2 hours in slow traffic

473 miles / 23.1 GAllons = 20.4 MPG total fuel burned. Not bad for a new Engine with 1500 miles on her and origional factory oil.
(I'd expect this to get even better as the engine " Breaks In ".)

I don't have the 3 Weeks yet, and I'm over the 1200 Miles.
Filled up about 5-6 times, but I've been taking long Highway trips. and drive a lot in the city.

Average Cost for Fill up: $50+ V-Power
It's hurting :p hahaha
