I boost cause I bought the car to, and that's my mileage. But I am also usually in backroads/single lane 55 MPH driving, so factor that in.
Based on your profile preview to the left, looks like you are running with a roof rack?

I have the Subaru rack which I have on in the winter for skis. With that on my mileage dips noticeably to about 23 city and 28 HWY. The thing whistles like mad too. Anyway, that could be a reason you are seeing lower then me, but it appears you still see mileage above the EPA ratings.

Check out 3gwrx.com, there are many mileage reports on there for the '08's.

PS: On a down hill stretch I've see 45 mpg.
