    Full bolt-ons including meth injection, I'd average 38+MPG on the highway, in the mountains on the way to Tennessee I'd get 32-34mpg and in the city I get ~29MPG. All the while, making 191whp (From 4500-6250)/230lbs-ft.

    miles and read threads where people getting 30+ mpg. On the highway for trips I get 36 mpg, in the city its 25-26 mpg. Then I read on some Fiat site (maybe this one) where a driver said to shift no higher than 2500 rpm. I tried that and got 30.5 mpg. So that's my answer. John
    Yep, and you can't trust the screen for real MPG. Go to the horse's mouth and track fuel/mileage over several back to back tanks.

    Like you, almost all is driving around town. I shift when the arrows say, so am in 5th at 35 MPH (cruising, not accelerating). I generally get there quickly, then skip to 5th. Similarly, around 31 in town, 36+ on the freeway (65 MPH). Twice I went onto the back roads sight seeing. Roads slick with storm debris on tight curves, so 35 is sane. Knocked down 45 one trip, 50 on another. (The engine was ticking along under 2K most of the 120 mile trips.)

    2013 500 Pop with Manual Transmission (according to the computer, which might be slightly optimistic):

    Mostly Highway driving: 42-45mpg
    mixed city and hwy: about 40mpg
    Pure highway driving: sometimes close to 50mpg (sticking to about 55 miles per hour).

    My long term (100-hour) average I try to keep above 40 but sometimes it goes into the 39 range if too much city driving.

    Am happy if I can get "range" plus miles driven on the computer to equal close to or even over 500 (I fill the gas tank way sooner than 500 miles though).

    I drive with a light foot to increase mileage. Manual transmission is all I ever want, even for driving in NYC, because it feels like much more control of the car. I hate that spongy feel that very automatic has (have rented many many models!).

    All in all, is there a better-mileage gas car? A friend claimed 55-60mpg for her VW Passat diesel but that was one of the forbidden-pollution ones.

    Having owned a 2.0 TDI in a smaller/lighter body I'm gonna call BS on 55 real world mpg diesel until I see data. ;]

    Briefly looked into this a bit (what a rabbit hole) and I think the easy answer is that the 1.4 MultiAir is very good in the current crop of modern vehicles, but the competitors are not far behind. Many recent Civics boast similar lifetime average MPG ratings as the N/A multiair 1.4. I think you might just be on the high side of the bell curve. (Interestingly the '08 & '09 500s have significantly better averages than others, can anyone explain that?)

    I'm very excited to see Mazda's spark controlled compression ignition (SCCI) engine, the SkyActiveX. Until then I think you win!

    Yes, the computer is optimistic. You might want to join Fuelly; your specs will earn bragging rights there. It'll be one of the best US MPG.

    Yep, your speed is in the range the 500 is geared for. On the freeway, under 70 MPH means I have to drop behind a semi. I'm not drafting, but it does keep someone from riding my bumper. It still gets good mileage at 60-65 speeds. Now that the car is broken in a bit, and the brick was replaced, highway speeds return > 40. That's offset by 30-31 MPG in town... lights and short hops really eat up the gas.

    The car still has a LOT of drag. Coasting down steep hills, that sent my former car over 70 MPH, leave the 500 coasting at 60. I think it's mostly bearings and factory alignment.

    On the '08 to '10's getting better mileage, the figures are "off" on Fuelly because these are EU Fiats. Their 0-60 times are measured on a calendar... but they do save on fuel. I'm also not sure if the owners checked the "Imperial gallon" box.

    My gas milage, for the last 8 years. Is right on what the other 500 folks on fuelly report. I have other brand vehicles, a little larger cars. None turbo. Same horse power as the turbo 500. That Use regular fuel. Achieve better fuel economy. I could never figure out why my old smart car, and 500 needed premium fuel 91 octane. The smart car, would get up to 44mpg, using 93 octane on the highway. I got 38 mpg once, using 93 out of the 500 once. Strong tail wind on the highway.

    Some of the 07-08 500’s fuel reports, are twin air engines.

    Some people confuse instant gas milage, instead of average gas miles. On the cars computer. I still perform tank to tank mile gallons calculation, the old fashioned way.

    Just did a round trip from Seattle to N. Idaho on I-90. About 480 miles round trip. There was construction on the pass headed east (stop and go) and stop and go on the return trip near Ellensburg for about 10 miles. Did about 70 mph with the A/C on. Average for the total trip was 44.3 mpg. and that includes maybe 20 miles of non-freeway driving. Bought the cheapest gas I could.

    I am sure I could have gotten 46 mpg maybe 47 mpg if there had been no traffic delays.

    Car has recently cleaned and charged BMC air filter.

    I believe you. I've gotten 40 mpg in my Abarth, so 44 mpg is not a stretch for a NA car driven reasonably.

    +1 Totally believable

    I was even going to say I gained a solid MPG over 4 fuel ups after cleaning my BMC this summer. =P
