I only saw about 345 at the most... Are you running on 91 or 93? And how did you achieve that? Nothing like keeping under 2500RPM all the time?

93 oct. All highway. Had the cruise set on 79.99999. AC was on the whole time. Air was 87+ from From atlanta to central florida. I got better mileage in the mountains, but didn't take pics, and was filling up at 350miles..

I am however catless.. which helps..

Oh my GOD are you guys serious?! You can't get 350 out of your tanks? This 15 gallon '02 WRX of mine gets 450 EASILY, thats not even all the way down to the light man... c'mon! Generally I only get about 200 ... but thats daily driving and .... gettin in it.... alot Heh.. thats awesome... makes me feel better now that I'm sitting here typing this looking at a bag full of clothes -- bout to drive south to Daytona Beach for a week.

I used to wonder if it was good mileage or not.. but... I guess I'm getting GREAT mileage... damn!

I'm a member... and judging by you guys... PROUD.

Harr!

Btw .... PWND

Could be... considering mine is 15.. 02 model... but... I think it was solmething along the lines of 15.7 or something like that.... could be they say 16 to make it look bigger.. just like Ford saying the 302ci engine is 5.0 instead of 4.9

I just did a cross country trip. Mileage varied from 22mpg in the mountains to 41mpg in the plains (2 people, full load, 93 octane) to 48mpg [!!!] going from Cleveland to Durham while drafting a semi. I had 3 400+ tanks.

im my 03 I went 375 mi. @ 32mpg coming up from Shasta to Portland, I could have pushed it, I hadn't hit the light yet, and IIRC, I still had just under 4 gallons left in the tank.

I can't stand the boring highways....I have to take the twisty backroads almost everywhere....I am lucky to get 300 out of a tank, but I never play with the fuel light.

I got 420 on my way to Colorado in Nebraska which is not very hard to do since it is so flat.

400 from st. paul mn to st. louis mo.

the boost gauge sits right in front of the gas meter so i didn't see the low gas light until it was ALMOST too late. i made it to the gas station though!

I used a tank of gas once in 120 miles.

The CEL in the picture was telling me that it was shocked that it had made it that far... I think it was asking for me to check to see if the turbo was still there...

I just hit 7500 miles, and it was my first Gas light ever... If you search, I have seen a few threads talking about it... Not very accurate..

I can go 120miles the first quater of the tank, and then wip thru the second and third in like 20 each... Not very accurate...
