Superb fuel economy!

I'm driving a GT (2.3 litre) sedan, 5 speed manual transmission, and I'm experiencing awesome fuel economy!

Fuel economy: 7.75 litres per 100 km's, or roughly 30.4 US MPG.

The best part is that this fuel economy is attained at over 60% city driving (which includes the long SFU hill, which probably sucks a lot of gas than the gas savings realized from going down that very same hill.

You can check out complete stats at: http://www.xanga.com/PWP_6MT/3953703...?nextdate=last

How is your fuel economy?

Re: Superb fuel economy!

I only refuel about once every two months, so MPG, isn't a big issue for me.

Re: Superb fuel economy!

There is a great site where you can compare your MPG and register your vehicle to log your fuel usage.
I believe it was developed by one of our forum members!
I have gotten as high as 30 MPG to as low as 22 in an 05 automatic.
