Mixed driving of highway and city. Mainly highway w/ light traffic. Stayed within speed limit, shifted under 3K.

Thought I'd share, my personal best.

I'm happy when mine shows 18.9 MPG from all City driving. Then again, my 2006 Mustang GT would average 14 in the city, so the 2012 WRX was an improvement! :D

Was this right after you filled up & reset the mpg counter ?
It was actually when I got home. After fill up the most I can get after that one mile was 22. It's just kept going up. It was one of those rare occasions that there was hardly any traffic. Once I got to the local roads, I went through all traffic lights literally at green 8). I wish it could always be like that.

I have no regrets lol. My gas consumption and gas payments only went up a little compared to the civic. However, I barely push the Subbie. I definitely can accept this and live with it.

Thanks again man!!! All you people still shopping or know someone looking for a rex.... I highly highly recommend this guy.

People who own WRX or STI's care about MPGs?

I for sure didn't buy my WRX for GREAT MPGs...
I do and I don't. If I was all about mpg, I would have gotten a Prius. I was just sharing that my avg mpg is above the estimated said 25mpg/18mpg. Just thought it was cool.

I think the TDI is better... several to choose from and they aren't butt ugly.

A while back I did a cost comparison between, say, a prius and a yaris, a civic and a civic hybrid, etc. I looked at the extra cost of getting a hybrid versus money saved on gas. Just based on published numbers for cost and mpg, the best comparison between a hybrid and an economy car from the same company would still need over 200k miles before you saved any money.

It was a pretty simple analysis, but still telling I thought.

I think I'm at 18.9-19 with Chicago driving and no regard for 3k.

It's nice to know what a good road trip would return though =)
