Trip from Dallas to Stillwater, OK. Started with full tank(til lever at gas station clicked) 300 miles and pumped when I got there til gas lever clicked again, filled 10 gallons.

I would say that's good considering driving between 80-90mph the whole way there. I think I can hit close to 500 on a full tank if I slowed down. I was getting 33-34mpg when taking trips from Houston to Dallas on cruise control at 70mph.

Once I hit the city, it sucks, I get 17-19mpg....

Is that according to the computer or actual? I've never gone further than 620 on the hwy with cruise on. Computer tells me 680-700 but NEVER comes close. Mix hwy&city is about 4-450 max. Thats 50/50.

Yikes... those are still some high numbers!

You guys up north must be getting some high oxygen concentrations in your air!

The day I ever get those figures is the day I'll be going green. Given my (potentially 420mi) no-traffic overnight trip, can't imagine getting 400+ with mixed driving.

I'm in Canada eh. That kilometers NOT miles. 1 mile =1.6 kms. My mileage sucks. About as bad as my B7S4 V8.

Haha, my bad. The things I take for granted (although I grew up with the metric system).

...and we complain about our $4/gal gas. Right now it costs just about $60 to fill up a tank in TX.

I get 4-450 kms and fill around 50-52L. That's pretty much on par with the WRX I had and the GTI before it. Very happy with the mileage considering it has some power to it.

I avg 29mpg and that's 80/20 (h/c) - quite pleased considering I've got the xdrive (last 2 tanks I went 650km and still had 2 bars left).

Best I've gotten is around 500 miles with about 75 miles to go according to the computer. Almost all highway (with a few in city miles), cruise set at 75 mph. The best mpg I've seen displayed by the computer was 43.5!!

Cheers!

My average is 250 miles to a tank. City driving, plus a lot of fun driving. When I try really hard, I can barely break 300.

In my Prius plugin, I can get 500+ miles easily on an 11 gallon tank.

I set cruise control to 65 and I still don't come close to those miles per tank.
The user that posted that had a 330. Good luck getting 30mph in a 335.

I do a lot of city driving so I usually get 270-280 a tank give or take a few miles depending upon traffic and depending upon whether I have lead foot that day.
