    My commute is like 38 miles highway, 7 miles backroads each way. But yeah a lot of 2k shifts and 65 mph on the highway with relatively little traffic gave me that. But is sitting at like 29.4 now with 210 on the trip at half a tank. Its painful to drive like this, I just wanted to see whats the best I could get for a whole tank

    Damn that's pretty impressive. I don't see better than about 17 mpg in my STI...I don't drive conservatively at all though...

    I tried driving around shifting at 2k for a bit when I first got the car. Then I bumped it up to more like 2500/2700 and didn't notice much of a difference in mileage. Throttle probably makes a big difference. I did feel like I was more often close to bogging the engine when shifting at 2k though, probably puts it in high load situations a lot more.

    I still do not believe those trip computers. I trust the "take the mileage and divide by gallons" method.

    I get 22.5-23.0 MPG consistently. Best I have ever got was 26 MPG on an all freeway road trip.

    The trip computer will show those numbers,usually just after a reset & very ,I mean really conservative driving. Try resetting & using cruise control with speed set to 40-50mph. It will show numbers above 25mpg. But if I wanted to drive like that I bought the wrong car.

    ive gotten 34-36 before...flat road, no lights, 45mph for 10-15miles. to answer the OP, gas has been that expensive before, and within the past 5 years, so i imagine people will keep on keeping on.
