    On my first trip to and from work today, i averaged 28.3mph in my 2014 turbo. It's almost all highway, 36 miles round trip and I did 73mph on the way to work and 76mph on the way home. i only have 320 miles on the car though. On the way to work I was getting 31.5, but there isn't a lot of flat highway on my drive.

    I can get 41mpg in my Abarth if I accelerate gently and don't go any faster than 45. Anything over that and it plummets quickly. At 75mph, I can average 30-32mpg through hilly Alabama interstate. At 70, it jumps to 35mpg average, which is not bad at all but this car just wants to be driven faster lol. Around town, if I can avoid accelerating like a hooligan (which is hard lol) I can get 28-32mpg, but my drive to and from work is only about 5 miles so my mpg in the city usually sits around 24-26.

    Last weekend I took a short trip and made it a point to set the cruise at 63mph. I was getting 38.5 mpg until some hilly sections dropped me down to 37mpg. You're theory holds up for me.

    I have a manual 2012 pop. I average 40 mpg, and on a long road trip average is 45 mpg. I tend to stay around 70 mph on the highway. I don't use cruise control. I buy Chevron premium which is 91 octane in CA.

    I have no problem averaging above [COLOR="#FF0000"]40 mpg [/COLOR]in my 2013 stick shift POP. Each trip is virtually the same, ... 15 mi stop and go in the city 25-30 mph, 25 mi small curving up and down road in the foothills 40-50 mph, 50 mi on 2 lane flat country roads 60 mph. I've tried running regular, mid range and premium gas of different brands, and have not noticed any difference. Have 11,000 mi on the car.

    With a mainly flat stretch of road and keeping it at 66mph cruise, I can average just over 40mpg in a 2014 turbo. If these cars weren't hitting 3k at 70mph, then highway mileage would be much better.

    Uggghhh! You are one of those people with cruise control that doesn't use it. Why, why won't you use the cruise. I shake my fist at you everytime I pass you again on a hill.

    I went back home to the D 2 weeks ago and got 39.3 mpg going there and then 37.0 mpg coming back. The trip back had me sitting in a traffic jam once I got into Indiana, so that surely affected the mileage somewhat. The trip there had me going through a couple construction zones and I didn't use the a/c for the entire trip coming to the D, not that a/c useage really affects the mileage too much while at speed. If you'd like, go to www.fuelly.com and look for Backfire, that's the name I gave the car (they require you to name your car) Once you find my car you can see all the fill ups since day one and read the notes, I usually comment on weather and fuel brand, etc there. Let me know what you think.
