I can't say it enough but I have taken the Impreza on two road trips. One was a 400 mile trip to NYC and the other was 420 miles to Jersey. Both times I reset the trip and had cruise set between 65 and 70 depending on the speed limit. My avg. Mpg gauge never got above 33 and my hand calculated averages were below 31 on each trip. You can call me a liar if you wish it doesn't bother me but isn't it possible some of us are experiencing poor fuel economy for reasons out of our control.
