Actually the diesel should get in the 40mpg range with the impreza which yes it does offer value at the added diesel price tag. Given that the 2.5I no matter which car its in will only see a max top end of around 28mpg. 30 mpg if you have a tail wind.

Granted we are talking about AWD cars here but when 2wheel drive cars are getting mid 30's the Subaru's need the diesel mpg boost badly.

Direct injection - I suspect will require premium fuel and all the docs I've read about DI for gassers is that 15% boost in milege is about all they can get out of it if they hold the HP down and not shoot for max HP with the DI system.

you can't have both more power and better fuel economy (at least not without a major shift in technology, i.e. diesel)
Sure you can, r56 Mini is a good example. More power than the previous gen, significantly better mileage. The point is the mileage should improve slowly with each version, not stagnate or decrease.

I'm kinda interested in the 09 WRX and I think it's great that you don't have to sacrifice fuel economy (combined) if you want to step up from the 2.5GT to the WRX.

I am liking what you are saying.
It sounds like as long as I keep my foot out of it the mileage should be 25+
