Impreza vs Legacy vs Outback
CR's city/hwy vs EPA's city/hwy
Impreza: 20/35 vs 27/36
Legacy: 18/34 vs 23/31
Outback: 16/32 vs 22/29

CR's city test is "severe". Highway test is steady 65mph. Looks like the Legacy and Outback are doing much better, relatively speaking, than the Impreza on the highway.

5,700+ miles on the new Impreza
Gas mileage ranges from high 27 to low 28 since new. Then it went up to 29.7 last week probably because of warmer temperatures. Gauge indicated 31.5. Not time to fill up yet this week, but the gauge is showing 31.5 also. This compares to getting 27 on a 05 Forester with EPA ratings of 20/26 vs 27/36.
