Thats why I like this car. You can drive it like a madman and still get 35+ MPG

I'm curious who will be the first to Autocross a CT in an actual SCCA event...

Good to know. Any idea if there's a recommended break-in duration and what they recommend?

36MPG is a great number. We might be able to get more for city driving where sport mode is useless. My co-worker's CT200h is still not here & arrival date push back to June/July.......I must warm her to scan it with radioactive meter

Was hers a special order, and do you know when she ordered it? No kidding on scanning it, I wondered that myself. Wonder if any of the plants or materials are in areas prone to radiation...

Not really a special order since the sales said they will look into the new shipment for the specs she want. She wants White exterior with black leather interior, technology package...that's it

With some careful driving (aka ni jack rabbit starts and such) and some playing with eco mode and EV mode crusing, I've managed 45.7 MPG based on the calculated fuel tank fillup method (though only one click). It was a mix of city and highway driving.

Finally I can contribute to feedback on this thread. I just took delivery on my CT last night and drove 42 miles, which was about 85% highway driving. I'm VERY proud to say that I achieved over 51 MPG according to the computer (yes, I understand these can be off by 1 or 2 MPG), but NEVER did I suspect I would get this mileage when it's not even broken in yet! Granted I babied the car while driving, but I want to be sure the car is broken in properly.

Congrats on the new CT! That's awesome mileage you're getting. Factory tire psi inflation?

Thanks man. As far as I know, but the dealer checked/set it all before taking delivery.
