    about 25>30mpg..some zo6 guys can get a little better, if you can stay out of gas pedal !! compared to your car about 500 lbs lighter ,and better aerodynamics !! rkvette

    idk cause i got 26 without cruise(highway) and get 18-20 city/highway and i vary from speeding, flooring it random, love red lights turning to green. and then just perfect law-abiding citizen. and still doesnt effect much. A4 LS1
