These 1.5s can net some serious mpg, especially at that 55-60mph spot(seems for my si)

My non-Si is the same. 55-60 mph is definitely the mpg sweet spot.

Last week I had a four trips of 30+ miles (two were 65 miles) where I got over 40+ mpg every time with a high of 45 mpg. I was mostly cruising on the highway (probably about 90% of the drive) with speeds of 65-75 mph. Also note, that I am also tuned and still go this good gas mileage.

Very nice. I tend to stay in the 36 range for city driving, unless I get excited. I leave my Si in tune 3 (Phearable 1.5T Street) and granny shift it....most of the time.

Yep. Averaging 43 mpg. Since I took the picture below, I've had two more tanks at 44 and 43 mpg each (400+ miles). I have backroad drives to/from work (55 mph whole way, 28 miles roundtrip 5x/week) and to/from the gym/grocery (35 miles roundtrip 3x/week, mostly 55 mph then ~10% 45 mph). The 30-something mpg tanks in the pic below are from interstate runs (80+ mph).

Just got back from a trip to the Grand Canyon, Vegas, Zion National Park, Arches National Park and Durango. Most of the trip was 70-80 mph, though a lot of it was through the mountains on roads that were winding with lots of steep hills.

41 Mpg during my recent weekend roadtrip as well. This includes some fast mountain driving following a Model 3. 90% of the time i was doing 70 mph chilling in the middle lane.
