Default mpg, and how many miles on a full tank before you fill up.

I am curious to find out what some are getting on their average mpg after a full fill up? I am curious to know how many miles you guys also average per tank. Gas is getting really expensive so its time to cut back on the driving..

I filled my car up today.. Used the debit card to fill it up and put in 36 dollars! I went about 275 miles and was half way between empty and 1/4 tank left. It turned out to be about 23mpg... Ideally I would like about 25. I am curious to find out what some of you are getting.

That per tank stuff tells you nothing... calculate your MPG.

I get 19-21 all city in my 2.2

Yea, maybe a bit low, huh?

I got about 470 miles on a full tank when I had cruise set at 80, all highway.

I get about 22 - 23 MPG by my guesstimation of 320/14. Although, I have an extra 100 lbs. of audio crap, college books, and clothes in my car.

I am a conservative driver, usually never letting my rpm's rev past 3000. The only time I do is when I get on the highway, which I let it go to 4k in fourth gear, but I usually have to get off soon anyways.

Also, I use the highway a bi coming home from work, which isn't that much.

That being said, I get about 25 mpg, with 80% city 20% highway.

I get 24.5 mpg with mixed city and highway driving. With mostly highway driving, I get 29.6 mpg. My car is an automatic with 87K miles on it.

I don't understand how everybody can shift at 3K or below, thats defeating the purpose of having our cars. With that being said I shift around 4-5K daily and get crappy MPG and only 220 miles per tank in my 05 wrx.

The purpose of most NA Subarus is to get to Point b from Point A for cheap, with decent MPG, great safety, and AWD for when it is needed. I know a total of 1 other NA suby owner in my area that thinks of their car as more than a grocery getter with AWD.

That being said, I'd love to get a small lightweight, safe, selectable AWD car with low HP and great MPG. Maybe 120 HP, 2400 lbs., etc.... As a daily driver. Heck, I'd rock the Suzuki SX-4 with some mods to make it more efficient.

Ahh hell no! Of course not...but I also would take my 95 Grand Am SE out for some spirited driving...you want to talk about POS beating? Drive a 5 speed Grand Am SE...you'll cry tears for the metal and plastic used to make that mass of failure

That's true, but I have a part time job that makes 9.15 to pay for things. You have a WRX, so you have a turbocharger on it, thus making your higher rpm's produce a lot more horses.

The 2.5i comes alive at 3k RPM's, but has some useable torque between 2k -3k range.

I average around 22-23 MPG with my 2.2 - I shift between 3,500 and 4,000 most of the time, and it's pretty much all short, 5 minute trips to and from school. Not as good as my Celica used to be, but the 2.2 is just a little bit bigger than the 1.6 I used to have in it.

I have a 2007 2.5i manual transmission.

In city driving (always spirited) I get about 280 miles with 1-1.5 gal left at pump. This equals around 19mpg.

In highway/freeway (using CC) driving going between 70-110mph (80mph avg) I got 380 miles with 1-1.5 gal left in tank. This equals about 25 mpg.

2.5i has maximum torque at 4k RPM and maximum HP at around 6k RPM. I usually like to roll my foot on the pedal from 3 to 4k then floor it at 4k, thats the only way to make power IMO.

My car starts to really pull at 3,000-3,200 RPM's, pulls hardest between 3,500-5,500 RPM's. Atleast that is what Mr. Buttdyno tells me. I have a tiny bit more useable dow low with a lightweight crank, but realistically this doesn't do much. I'm hoping with a few more lightweight mods, I can use more of the RPM's for monotonous driving...and get better MPG!

Man, I want to spend money, but Christmas is right around the corner (already bought for some people haha)
