    I have been watching my fuel usage over the last few days, and I have been averaging on my daily commute 24.7 mpg, which is a mix of freeway and regular street driving. My driving is mostly normal, no jackrabbit starts or aggressive driving, I don't use a lot of boost etc. This just doesn't seem right, as my 2006 Camry SE V6 averages around 22 or 23 mpg. Is anyone else experiencing similar fuel usage?

    I live in the city and it'll kill my fuel economy. Highway is usually around 40-42, add city in, it drops to about 31, do city only driving and it's about 22-24.

    I do 80% city driving - I've been hovering around 26 MPG. I drive "spiritedly," as they say.

    Pretty good considering I'm coming from a naturally aspirated 4 cyl that got me 18 mpg in the city.

    Do you coast early to stop signs/ red lights? :)

    I do coast, but I stay in gear until I am almost at a stop then I clutch it right before I stop. Sometimes I downshift and let the engine slow me down

    I hover around 25.5 mpg in 100% in-town driving. I thought there was a problem but now that i'm reading other people getting similar numbers I guess that's the norm.

    On a recent long distance trip I got 38.5 mpg for the entire tank. I have seen people claiming they get 41-44 mpg highway but not sure how that's possible. I was going 70-75 the entire way with no traffic at all.

    I am getting this average from my morning commute which is colder. Maybe I should check my MPG going home when it's warmer...

    I do mostly city driving with lots of stop and gos. Im Ktuned with PRL race CAI.

    I can average 28-30mpg if i try hard enough. I do 0 downshifting. All coasting. And slow rolls to red lights far ahead.

    If im being spirited i do 26+mpg.

    i'm getting about 28.3 mpg with about 80% city driving. that also means that i tend to really let her rip when i do get some open space getting onto the freeways :p

    usually, when i set the cruise at 80-85mph on the freeway, i see my mpg's hover around the 40 mark. doesn't much matter when the "highway" portion of my commute is only 8-10 miles though.

    still, it's a hell of a lot better than the ~17-18mpg my S2k gets

    I’m getting 31 with only a couple tank in at this point. More short trips, commute is only 6 mi but back roads. I don’t lug it but I’m not generally shifting at 6k either, defiantly step in it mergin pg on highway.
    Downshifting to slow while it can be fun is topically a waste when not racing, autocross etc. brakes are cheap and made for the purpose.

    Currently getting 39-40 with TSP Stage 1 tune, PRL stage 1 intake, and snow tires on the car. This is on country roads with a little stop and go.

    How far is your commute? Short drives kill mpg. Are you hitting boost through every gear all the time? If driven lightly you can almost stay out of boost completely. Checked tire pressure? Cold weather hurts it too.
