    If you shift below 3K, and skip gears, and drive like an old ass lady, then maybe you could get 20 mpg in the city. What's the fun in that? If I wanted something that I had to baby and gets great gas mileage, I would get a frickin Hybrid Prius.

    Last time I checked, there wan't a FORUM for PRIUS enthusiasts. haha

    The gas mileage I get on the highway is a just a plus, in my opinion. We have RAW ass sport cars, that make big power, and if that means I have to sacrifice city mpg, then I think it is a good trade-off. I will sacrifice an extra 30 or 40 bucks a month so I can get out of my car with a smile on my face everytime.

    Now a few thousand miles into this car. I've taken a couple of trips now and 27 MPG has been reached, but those trips involved some stop and go (not all Interstate). I believe it is capable of 29MPG on the highway like the previous owner said. The difference in everyday driving is 18.5 MPG driving normally, Getting a little more frisky drops it to just under 17.5 MPG.

    Now for a tune up.
