The highest mileage was on a mountain trip, 32mpg on a 120 mile round trip on two-lane switchback mountain roads. Speeds ranged from 40-65, and I was driving gently except for a half-dozen spikes passing rolling roadblocks (slow drivers) on the two-lane roads.

I previously had a 2.5i impreza w/man trans, and I figure I lost 2mpg average in the trade-up.
How many miles on the OD? I'm in Colorado Springs too and go HW24 to the high country a lot. I'm hopping for 27 MPG to-from Skiing.
