Not bad at all- about 28+ here and up to 31 on a trip. Better than promised.

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.

Just got back from a trip and got 30.4 going on cruse at mostly 70 mph. Got 28.0 on the way back fighting a head wind and heavy rain. My manual numbers were within 1 mpg at fill ups from the infotainment numbers, pretty close numbers.

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?

Even in full "D" psycho mode and paddles, I have never had less than 22.

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.

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!!!
