For reference, those are the kind of mpgs you'd see out of a dedicated econo-box like the Chevy Cruze eco.
So getting that in a car that can hold its own against mustangs and 350zs and previous generation M3s is exceptional.
That is precisely why I bought the car. Best of both worlds plus it handles too. What more could you want?
