    Very nice. I can usually get around 27 for long distances, but I have to go like 60-65.

    Don't you go 60-65 through Camden to avoid the bullets?

    No, you have to go faster than that....Up to about 88 and use the flux capacitor.

    Is that at the end of a tank or just what the car was telling you?

    I commute a LOT and I use Fuel Log Pro for Android to log all of my fillups. My car regularly tells me over 30 at the beginning of a tank but it usually calms down to 27ish by the time I'm filling up. Here's my history from the app; you can tell which ones consisted of a fun weekend also...
    25.82
    21.88
    25.85
    22.84
    26.03
    24.07
    24.31
    23.91
    24.03
    25.52 (my second fillup in the car)

    I just got back from a trip. My girl and I, some clothes, some food, coals, etc. I got 415 miles on 1 tank of gas, the cars calculator was at 28.7 mpg. I was pretty impressed with that, especially considering I was running the a/c for about 60miles when the temp hit 100+ outside.

    That was from full to the E/ line between fill ups. 2009 WRX no mods, just an axleback exhaust.

    Awesome, dude!

    I think it's funny that I'm easily able to post higher numbers than rated since they re-did how to rate the cars a few years ago... (2007?)

    I quit worrying about gas mileage...I enjoy driving my car too much. My STi hasn't seen "I" mode since the 750 mile point.

    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    That's actual miles driven divided by the gallons used.A MY03 doesn't give you any kind of readout.
