What kind of mileage are you guys getting? How much city/highway? How much "spirited" driving? :)

have you experienced your mileage to be fairly consistent?

I drive mostly on the freeway and have been getting 25-30 mpg. I think that it is great, when you don't step on it you get the gas mileage of a four banger, when you do step on it you get the gas mileage of a performance 6. Best of both worlds.

Next time I go to Denver I'll have a record! Minimum 35mpg I'm assuming as its all steep down grades where you cruise 120+ in neutral...

I got 21.3 mpg out of my first tank. That included 75% city driving. I did the math and found the mpg calculator in the car to be spot on.

But, I beliebe I'll be in teh same boat with GraveDigger. I don't get onto the highway too often, and right now I'm averaging about 18 mpg around town. And I'm not even doing any spirited driving yet, as I am in the middle of the break-in period. I'm guessing that 3 snow days + VDC operation has a little to do with the lower mpg.

I drove a 200+ mile highway trip each way. The way up I drove aggressively and averaged at least 75mph. This yielded around 23mpg. On the way back I drove passively, averaged around 65mph, and achieved 30mpg.

I played around with the trip odometer reset button and held various speeds. The best I was able to get was 40mpg at 40mph, but who is ever going to be able to hold that speed in real world driving situations.

+1 for shitty drivers here in CO at first snowfall every one is going 35 or less... can average over 40mpg in 15+ mi trips

It can be annoying, but at least its better then Illinois where nobody bothers to adjust for the weather, then you get stuck behind an accident...
