    We own a GREAT car.....

    Had buisness 200 miles from home yesterday. Left thursday night and drove the speed limit. I was very happy to get 24 miles to the gallon on my fill up for the trip home. I have the A4 so I know someone with the six speed could do better. I live in God's country and we have some long straight roads here in New Mexico and when headed back toward home it was nice to travel at 100 mph for an hour. She ran nice the whole way and never above 3k rpm. Probally wanted more, but that was a nice run. Haven't fill up yet so don't know what the mpg is till tommorrow. All that performance and still great gas mileage. what a country.

    I was suprised with my mileage too. I have a 6 speed with 4.10's and bolt on's. I live near Rochester,NY and took a trip up north and back about 400 miles. Mostly highway driving going about 75. I got 27 mpg. Too bad I hit a rainstorm on the way back. The weather man said no rain so I took the car. Couldn't go over 40 mph for awhile because of the street slicks.

    29.3 MPG going UP to the mountains. It's funny, but I'm not sure going DOWN the mountain would get much better since it pulled it so easy. I went up Black Mountain on I-40 in sixth gear at 60mph and never had to downshift. Me, my wife, and two kids in the car.

    Simply amazing power on tap.

    Around here, it gets around 18.5 MPG in daily driving. Still not bad at all. Just requires premium (93) and will complain a little with anything less.

    Yeah. I'm running about 420HP (at the engine), 4.10s full-boltons, and get about 16-16.5mpg in the city. I see all those adds on TV for those "fuel-efficient" Hondas and Toyotas that get between 28 and 32mpg Hwy - are you kidding me? For a loss of only a couple mpg, I can have the extra 200+ HP I'm itchin' for, there's no way others can convice me that my car's a gas hog. They can go and and talk all talk they want...

    My WRX gets 22city/27-32hwy mpg on 93oct. Puts about 220 to all four wheels, and I have four doors. Only running BPU for around $1200 too. blah blah blah
    I'm seriously thinking of trading it in for an M6 TA though..... so no, high-end isn't enough.

    can y'all put down your general mod list with your avg mpg.
