Those are pretty good numbers. My weekend trip I only got about 23 mpg which I thought would be better but to be fair I was cruising at 85+ mph so I'm sure that affected it. My average in the city is only about 12 mpg but it's the worst stop and go traffic you can think of.

at 75-80 steady state 28-30 mpg is easily obtained on cruise. Been there, done that a few times now. My computer reads 23.6 average and its surprisingly always within 1 mpg at fillups! You can call me Scott Dixon if you like.

I’m hanging around 18.5 city with some spirited driving. But I’m also mid break in at 460 or so miles.

sweetness: I follow traffic 60-70 and do the VisconteVerde method - smooth acceleration anticipate deceleration in long distance travel. 31 mpg today arriving home - PA Turnpike/Schuylkill Expressway/Roosevelt Ave. Stop-and-go, mixed driving overall. Goal is 200K over 10 years and I intend to enjoy every mile!

Sooooo you don't drive the car the way it was meant to be?

Selectively. She purrs... and occasionally roars! Stella fills multiple roles in my life.

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!!!
