So far, with 2017 1.8L auto, averaging about 30.2 MPG hand calculated in combined driving around town, semi rural and a bit of freeway.

The best highway/interstate short trips of about 100 to 150 miles was 36 MPG hand calculated driving 55 to 65 MPH. This was with only about 800 miles on the odometer. Now at almost 1,800 miles.

So i did a test recently on how much of a difference gas mileage is at 75mph compared to 85 (manual RS) on the toll road that I take to work. Dear God it's a huge difference. At 75 I was averaging about 29.5 mpg and at 85 it dropped down to 23.3. However the tune and front splitter will cause a difference from the factory numbers of course but I was surprised at how big the difference was
