The MINI is getting ~32 on my 110 mile commute these days (mostly highway @ ~75mph).

I want a 5mt hatch. What do you guys think I'll get for MPG? It "needs" to be the 33 epa estimate or I don't think I'll switch. The MINI is 10 years old and I'm sick of it at this point. I'd gain space and AWD and go to normal gas from premium, but I want to keep it at 33mpg @ ~75mph. Likely? And it's an easy commute w/o much stop and go and I'm good with spacing etc. I can also cruise a bit. And in the forester when I drive it I've gotten 28~30 just to show how I drive -vs- the wife -vs- the EPA's numbers...
I see about 31mpg average at 75, but the little tiny bit of in town plus warm up drops me down to about 28 on a 70/30 hwy/city split.

Expecting 33 every fill is unrealistic imho.
