I got 26mpg a few times. Getting gas I would reset the "mpg" via the BC button, and would go on the highway, had to use some throttle control, and was averaging 26mpg. Mixed with some city driving, I got around 17mpg, and back to my normal driving habbits, 14.4mpg.

I took a drive from NYC to Montreal, all highway, doing about 75 and the best I averaged was around 18-19mpg. There must be something that's giving you guys better gas mileage. I still have my charcoal filters but not sure that makes a difference.

i had a lil bit of fun with car on the way down cause its new to me but i dont think it would make me lose that much. I don't really trust the computer so I go by the miles on my fone and just calculate how many gallons I add at the next stop.

what speed gives u the best freeway mpg? people are sayin 80 but i can't risk any more point so i coast at 70. and kinda flucuate between 70-80

I would say 80mph as well.

Maybe next time I'll manually calculate it and see what I get.

I lock my speed at 65 miles/hour and i barely touch my gas or brake pedal if needed. Hence i saw 334 mile range a couple of times, the on board trip computer showed me 24 miles/ gallon.

I went about 350 from OKC in to texas. Slight downgrade in the road most of the way so I think that helped.

It's funny you ask that I was thinking the same thing. I changed from castrol to liqui moly and my gas milage is worst than before.. Anyone have any thoughts on this.
