    gas mileage

    i just got an 04 wrx a couple of weeks ago. i read that the mileage is around 20city-30hwy miles per gallon. i took a trip on flat terrain and only got about 20 miles per gallon hwy. does this sound right? i wasnt even driving it hard. the only mechanical mod is a magnaflow exhaust. when the fuel light comes on the dash, how many miles do you have until you really have to get gas? sorry for the rather stupid questions but i did a search and didnt have much luck. thanks

    I get 25mpg in my car when it's set to stage 2 and roughly 28 when it's set on the economy tune when i'm using cruise control. Are you keeping it at a constant speed? The minute your turbo spools you lose mpg's.

    I thought mine was low when i bought my 02 i am figuring mine is getting about 20 mpg. I did notice though when i fill the car which is about $38 (if you run 87 octane which i highly do not recommend ) i can drive 300 miles on one tank vs. $20 dollars at a time. sounds dumb but verified many times.

    i have had my 08 for a little over a month and have been getting about 20 in town, and in upwards of 30 on the highway....not interstate highway though. interstate sets me back to about 26-28. i have about 45K on the car.
