What Real World Mileage are you getting?

What is your real world milage? Don't forget to include details like driving style, what gas ron, aftermarket bits, etc.


Coming up on my first tank of gas. So I'm not ready to post my real world mileage yet.
I'm doing a "don't drive the same rpm" and "keep it between 2-4k rpm" and "don't put the engine under really heavy load" break in.
My first fillup was with 91.
What is our gas tank size?

I think the manual says it's like 14.5 gallons but even from Empty I haven't been able to put more than 13 in it...

I'm averaging 30mpg mixed city and highway... About 375 miles per tank...on highway only I've averaged around 36mpg...

I noticed the boost really kills MPG.

6 MT, Stock. 87 Octane.

Without aggressive driving (Shifting below 3k rpm), I'm averaging 33mpg ~ 35mpg.
Drove 150 mile trip, average at 80mph, I got 29 mpg.

Keeping everything stock for maximum warranty

Picked up the car on Sunday and in two days of driving that includes mostly cruising speeds of 50-70mph and some minor in-town errands, meter in the car currently says 36.7mpg. Base 6MT. No idea what the dealer put in the tank, probably 87.

I do about 80% sedate driving and 20% spirited. I'm averaging 30 - 31 mpg between city and highway, and most of my trips are under 5 miles. I use 93 octane, no performance mods yet.

I just added the car to my fuelly account, so I will be tracking it every fill up.

Here's where I ended up with my Forte Koup EX:

My first fill up:
44 litres with 460 kms on 91 pump "doing break in" driving (on the gas-off the gas-on the gas-off the gas...).
My next tank will be 87 octane also on "break in" driving.
9.5 L/100kms
24.8 miles/gallon

When I first purchased the car I was getting around 9 - 9.5L/ 100km. Now that I'm passed the break in period, I've gotten it down to 7 - 7.5L/ 100km. With that being said I put it in sport mode at least once every time I drive it.

I did a 150 mile highway trip two weekends ago and averaged 39 mpg. I'm getting 32 mpg currently with a 5 mile commute daily and a ~40 mile highway drive on the weekends, so that's about 50/50 city/highway average. I'm pleased so far, but I haven't done the actual calcs when filling the tank... Hopefully the displayed mpg is only off 1-2 mpg.
