i ask what kinda mileage you guys get because i took a 59 mile trip to visit a friend and filled up before i left and when i got there i filled up again in 59 miles i used 1.187 gallons so i got 51mpg on the hwy doing 60-70mph whole way. best ive ever gotten about 34 thats in town this was my first time keeping track on hwy. its a 96 5sp 2.2l i know my math is correct. i checked 4 times because i couldnt believe it. does anyone else see numbers like that? thanks

Last I got on mine was 23mpg. Heavily abused.

59 miles divided by 1.187 gallons = 49.7 mpg, not 51 mpg .

On my last tank I got 30.6 mpg on my '09 Vibe GT 2.4L automatic with 50% city / 50% highway driving. The only engine mod is a K&N Typhoon CAI with an AEM Dry Flow air filter.

Personally, I wouldn't trust such a small sample size for calculating mileage. Way too many variables...

You have no idea if the shutoff was at the exact same point because you used two different pumps, or if they were both 100% accurate, so maybe you had more or less than just 1.187 gallons.

34-36 under 2500 rpm when I drive like a granny

20-26 when I drive aggressive and hit boost. Closer to 20 if its a lot of boosting.

On average im around 7.0L/100km (33.6mpg) of mixed city and highway driving.
Best I ever had was 5.2L/100km (45.2mpg) But that was while I was driving through the praries. So an entire tank of flat ground doing 110km/h (70mph). There were times where I was on the Trans Canada Highway where I wouldn't need to touch the brakes for 700+km

Man.... My trip over the weekend with 90+ degrees and humidity was around 30 mpg's. But it was also going 70 mph through nothing but mountains. Up hill, down hill, up hill, down hill... Amazing drive, but killer on the fuel.

If I'm city driving, USUALLY anywhere from 25-27. Most highway is around 31-33. I've seen as high as 36. I've also seen as low as 22. My most consistent numbers are 26 city 32 highway. I mean consistant in that's what I see most of the time.

Now, the Mazda we just got, the best i've seen so far is 37 highway. The worst I've seen is 30 city. I love that little zippy thing.

I usually get about 26 MPG in mixed city/freeway driving. Probably more like 22-23 in city driving. I've gotten as high as 37 MPG on long interstate trips, but probably more like 32-33 on the freeway. No one ever seems to stick to the speed limit in Michigan, so we crank it up to 80+ MPH. Hard on fuel that way. When I'm out of state, I slow down to 70 or so, and my mileage goes back up.

1997 Cavalier, 2.2/4T40 4 speed auto, 249,000+ miles.

Best I've ever gotten in the Sunfire was 42mpg.

Got 37mpg recently...but I made a 400mi trip in just under 5.5 hours, so I was moving pretty good.

Best I've gotten in my truck was 18mpg all highway LOL

Most of the people who post here are 4 cyl owners.

Id expect about 25 or 26 on the highway out of a V6 Beretta.
