This past weekend when I went home, on the way home I averaged 34.4 MPG (MFA reading, which is dead on), and at the absolute lowest point (when I started going faster than 75mph) I was getting 32.6. On the way back however, I was pushing really strong wind and got 28.6 the whole way. My car is a stock (except for K&N, lightened flywheel, and H&R Cup Kit) 2.0 16v.

yeah, but that half tank thing is kind of deceptive. i get 200 out of the first half, and by another 100 miles of city driving i am in the red.

Same first half seems slower then speeds up, then when she starts nearing the red it slows down..it all balances out I think.

The best I've gotten is 37mpg in my jetta on the highway. Normally for around town with all my quick less-than 5 mile trips I take I get about 27-30.

30-32mpg avg, mainly freeway 50-70mph freeway driving with a fair amount of stop and go thrown in (this being Seattle, and all.
) If I really get on it, it'll drop into the mid-20's.
