    Your current average miles per gallon

    So i have to ask the question. what is the real MPG's you are seeing vs the posted numbers on your window sticker? also how many miles can you squeeze out of one tank? I have to ask as i was in my friends 08 coupe EX last night and she had 220 miles on that tank was still half full! is this typical?

    usually the first half will last longer than the second half of the tank. I got on average about 300 miles out of my tank. All highway I could squeeze 330. That was before I put on the supercharger. It dropped to about 275 after, but I drive it a lot harder now. If I drive really hard it only gets about 250.

    In my 08 EX coupe, I average 280-300 with 90% city driving, however when its 50% city and 50% highway I get 350 with a full tank. AND when I drove to Miami, Fl from Philly, PA I got 500 miles with a full tank once on cruise control at 65 mph. I did it intentionally to see how much I would be able to get, then after that I drove normal 70-90 and got a little over 400 with a full tank.

    wow thats pretty impressive......the most i have ever squeezed out of my Lancer is 255 miles and the gas light was on. which is the reason i had to start this thread....just to see how horrible my mpg's really are! lol

    it also makes me wonder what is possible with the 2012 model if you are pulling off those kind of numbers already

    That's not bad but there have been people in 8ths getting over 40mpgs & there was no ECON button. Then again your just bought the car so the motor needs to break in still so your MPGs should continue to increase.

    Yea I think it will. I also don't live in a flat area so that does not help.

    Only have 250 miles on car. I'm getting, in-town only, MPG of 31.6 over last 40 miles with ECON on. When driving home on Interstate and two lane state highways for 175 miles, I got almost 41 MPG with ECON off.

    the Econ button just coaches the driver how to drive economically. like It probably tells you to maintain a good speed or light throttle. I'm sure once you drive with Econ turned on enough times, you won't even need it and can be driving within the Econ button standards without the car telling you what to do and Econ off.
