    I drive mostly highway (about 15 mile commute to work) which does include a little bit of city driving (> 1 mile). I re-set my trip every time I get gas and I generally average 25.8 - 26.7 according to the computer's MPG. I generally drive softly to and from work and almost always have fun around the weekend.

    Overall, I'm pleased.

    Just like lengthwise mentioned, stick to your lowest speed that is efficient in 5th gear. (A.K.A... use the least amount of throttle at the lowest RPM you can still maintain speed at).

    It'll probably be about 55-60mph.

    At least for me, the computers MPG is typically ~2MPG higher then it really is when I figure it out myself.

    I've had a couple of cars with trip computers; measuring at the pump was always much more accurate.

    I've always gotten pretty great mileage out of my WRX's for what they were...but not so much anymore. Hybrid engine+18G+cold weather seems to have put a nice trough in my mpg graph.

    We'll see how it goes when the weather warms up. I'm not really complaining; 24mpg average since September isn't bad for a car that's seeing 19psi of boost every time it's driven.

    I'll up the ante a bit, I'm a data geek, I work with data all day, every day so I had an Access database for my old car, gas vs temperature graph for the nerd in me. I just realized I didn't do any statistics or linear regression...

    The database for my WRX consists of receipts in glove box.

    ^^^Your new Graphinator, ladies and gentlemen!

    Nicely done! Now I want to go buy a calibrated thermometer so that I can get that data point when I fill up!

    You can keep the title of Graphinator

    I downloaded the weather data, can't recall what website, but it had daily historic data for most major cities. Then I just built a query that matched the fill up dates with the temp that day. It was a pretty rad database

    That's a great way to do that, actually. A fairly simple SQL Join should get what you need, then you just plug it in to a sheet to graph.

    not sure about the extensive write up, but in my opinion: spark plugs up to date, tire psi, where u buy the fuel(sunoco has the best quality here in pa, and hess has the worst fyi), and maintaining a steady throttle(dont slow down /speed up constantly etc.) and i definately agreee with the "dont leave uneccicary crap in car" aspect.(my wife used to b*tch about mpg's so i took all the crap out of the car and the springs raised up like two inches there was so much crap!!!)
