    Gas Milage

    I checked mine for the first time last night and got 20.5 mpg. 94 TA with 171,000 miles on it. That's driving it right and not standing on it.

    What are you guys getting?

    THats not bad for an average cycle. If thats all highway mileage it isnt great. If it's all city mileage though, it is great

    I usually average around 22 to 25 with half highway and half city.That is driveing kind of aggressive. I am happy with those numbers because that is the best out of all 4 cars I have.

    I would get 14-16mpg, but that is ALL city. Don't need to drive highway much.

    I'm quite impressed with my highway fuel mileage, I averaged 26.4 on the 5 hour trip home after buying my car a couple weeks ago. Thats an M6 with full boltons, hotcam, and 4.11's. 380 RWHP and that mileage, I'm happy. I haven't checked it around town yet, not too concerned though, just think its cool that its still capable of reasonable mileage.

    Impressive, must be reasonably close to stock I'm guessing? Thats close to what I get in my daily driver! I get about 28-29mpg average on highway/city and 36 on just highway in the RSX.
