Been keeping track - resetting trip counter when filling up and dividing mileage by gallons used, with my mods (a51 intake and lsportline exhaust) and spirited driving more often than not, mixed fwy and surface streets, getting about 18mpg-19mpg on average. Got a low idle issue at stop though, won't be able to get a look at that until I get some garage space again.

I get slightly over 300 miles per tank. I used to get around 350, but that's when I was driving 65-70mph on the freeway. I drive around 80 now.

I got 284 to my tank today, i filled up 14.8? i believe, turns out to be 19mpg

I thought it was sorta low but i drove a mix between hwy and local, a/c on here and there, never really flooring it.
