I'm confident that those numbers could not be reached with my Impreza. Like previously stated my wife and I took a road trip to NYC last summer and only got 30.5 mpg cruising at 65 mph. Last month we took a trip to New Jersey to help with the hurricane Sandy clean up and could not exceed 30 mpg cruising at 70 mph.

Could someone please explain how 1 person could get 40 + mpg and I can barely get above 30?
I could get a photo of my cvt imp gauges showing 70mpg if I reset just as I crested Steven's pass and did the 20 mile stretch of downhill on the east side of the mountains.
Of course it dropped as low as 14 mpg getting up to that pass.
A snapshot is pretty meaninglessness.
