Bought this FWD SV 6spd in 2013 in Denver and drove it back to Indpls, 1100 mi. I babied the brand new engine by varying my speed and staying under 60 for 500 mi. Drove in NORMAL, using premium. Got 31.5 mph. I hand calc each tank full. I consistently get 31 mpg 70/30 highway/local driving. I get as much as 31.5 and as little as 28 mpg. This has remained stable over 6 years. I'm an aggressive, but conserving driver. I don't need to be first at red lights, but like to take curves at top speed. I gun it occassionally. I shift at 2500 rpm and D/S the same. 61K mi. I love this car.
