    Highway my '03 gets in the range of 27-31. around town i'd say between 22-24. i keep my tires a little more inflated. and i try and keep unnecessary weight out of my car at all times. and keep up with oil changes and Air filters.

    I have a 2010 and my city mileage is around 21 with highway at 23. One the highway I am usually doing around 75.

    Going 60-65 my mileage will go up to around 25 and through a 45 mph construction zone it goes up to 29. From 65 and up the mileage goes down a lot.

    This is why the feds instituted the 55mph limit back in the 70's. It really does save gas.

    From what I have read, the older WRX's seem to get better mileage. The newer ones get the HP boost and use a little more fuel. I also noticed that when cruising 45-55 MPG is pretty good, when going anything past 65, it gets steadily worse. Boy, if the car only had a 6th gear, I'll bet highway mileage would improve!

    2009 WRX hatch

    9500 miles total - life average of 23.5

    Highway(65-70) in winter w/ winter tires and ski rack - 23.5 mpg

    Highway(65-70) in summer w/ summer tires and no rack - 28 mpg

    Around town - 22-25 mpg

    Unless stop and go around town, I really haven't dropped below 20 even with letting the car warm up in the winter and just driviing a few spirited miles thorugh town.

    I use 93 as 91 is near impossible to find. Castrol Syntec every 3500 miles. Guess I'm just lucky

    just got 28.4 MPG on highway for 300 miles averaging around 75 mph. Best fuel economy I have ever gotten for over a 150 mile range.

    Usually I get around 18-19 mpg in city.

    I have a 2010 WRX with only about 300-400 miles on it. So far - it is getting about 20-21 mixed with city/highway 50%/50%. I usually go 65-70mph on the highway. Things should get better as we break the car in.
