I'm just over 1,000 mi so yeah, basically just over the break-in. I expect a bit of an improvement... but also, will likely be driving a bit harder once I do my 1st oil change in the next couple of weeks.

But yeah, was spoiled with the FA because it is quite decent. I was getting like 19 USmpg combined and got as high as ~24 on highway (with a roof rack. Havent put a roof rack on the STI yet).
