I got about 19 one day, but to be fair it was for about 165 miles of hilly, twisting, winding roads, with speeds around 35mph to more than I should have and all in D mode and manual shift a good part of the time.

To clarify my 22 mpg comment...that would be average over typical two week period; freeway, streets, racing Macans etc . I have seen 28+ in grandma mode on the freeway.

You know its pretty easy to blow by someone at 80 when you don't ever lift... Accelerator is for changing speed but if you are already doing +20-30 over limit.....The guy in the GT3 that kept braking before corners certainly doesn't think I drive mellow! I'm sure his rear view showed every detail of the ALFA SYMBOL!!!

Is anyone driving in A mode on long trips, isn't that supposed to provide the best MPG and lower performance ?
