I drive my car hard, ( 2013 500T )shift at 4000 or higher, about 45 highway miles and 10 city miles everyday, I run at 65/75 mph and have consistently got 35 MPG

Is this close to what you are getting

In my T, pre-Abarth days, I averaged 38-40 after the first oil change going 65mph. In NM & AZ on the way to Las Vegas, I averaged 50-52mpg at 5500 ft elevation at 80mph. Believe me don't believe me, don't care either way. I spent about $300 in fuel from Memphis to Las Vegas and back gr_grin

I've only had mine for 2 weeks now, but I've been averaging about 28-29 mpg.......

I have almost 28k on my 500T, and I got 41 mpg on the last road trip I took, but locally around town I get 35. So Id say your spot on.

I've got about 6700 miles on mine in 14 months. Mostly around town. When I get in it's engine on, sport mode on, ESC off. Drive it like I stole it.
I get about 30 to 32 mpg.

My car just turned over 1k miles and just took a 160 mile round trip and averaged 37 mpg.......

First tank on my Abarth, right around 30mpg combined...read not city/highway, rather wife short shifting and me enjoying the more spirited side of the car ;)

I can't hold it back though. This car was specifically for my wife to drive ~50/day to school and for me to enjoy while running errands/dates/whatever else you can categorize not needing our 2008 Dodge Magnum for. These cars are very fun, yet economical.
