    Go the speed limit, don't accelerate aggressively, be in the right gear at all times, avoid excessive boost, park your car in a heated garage. If you do all of those things you'll get the best possible mileage your WRX can get, which isn't great, and will take most of the joy out of your daily drive. Having your tires properly inflated and your alignment in check can help mileage as well, but they can also make your drive more fun.

    On my previous car I used to log mileage religiously, I guess I was trying to make up for the complete and total lack of performance by getting good mpg. With my WRX I've decided I just don't care, I check mileage occasionally to ensure it's burning as much as it should

    Funny this should come up today!

    My car:
    2002 2L WRX, authentic parts only, 100+ K mi on the clock.

    Pressures:
    260 kPa front
    240 kPa rear

    Tires:
    Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3, 225/50/16 all around

    Gearbox: 5spd. I shift as soon as possible.

    Motor oil:
    Mobil 1 "TurboDiesel Truck" 5W-40.

    Gearbox, rear diff:
    Valvoline 75W-90 GL-5.

    Fuel:
    Any brand, CA/US spec 91.

    This morning, I measured

    8.01 L / 100 km
    or 29.44 mpg

    In general though Subaru has a long way to go IMO. Their switch to larger motors, not to mention larger motors with shorter service intervals, was at best -- leniently! -- an anachronism. Instead of being embarrassed, they simply allowed their dealers to cash in on the more frequent service intervals.

    I'd have rather seen a 1.8L motor with more power, lower emissions, better fuel economy, and longer service intervals but apparently they were thinking more along the lines of "let's just add displacement because why innovate, eh?"
