It's official!! after a lot of patience and staying out of boost a good bit, Ive officially broken over the 40mpg mark with an average of 41.5 miles to the gallon. I'll keep everyone posted with the exact mileage I get out of the tank once I have to refuel. But what kind of avg mpg is everyone else getting??

I avg 30 mpg. My daily comute is 89 miles. 55 miles on tool roads and the rest in city traffic.
I am not in the boost all the time but I do some spirited driving馃榿

Sadly the car has 32k miles already.

33.5mpg to NH and back from Cleveland Ohio. Went toll roads and major highways there, and some twistys and mountain roads on the way back. I normally get around 28mpg driving around here though in traffic and city roads.

I got to 385 miles before I refueled, could have possibly went the extra 15 miles to get 400 but didn't want to risk being on the side of the road lol

At 41.5mpg you should be well over 400 miles before needing to refuel?
Yes sir, the 41.5 mpg is the highest I've achieved yet, but I had one day last week where I was running late to work so I got in the boost a bit passing cars and rushing and it ran my avg. down :/ sucks because now I'm averaging around 34-36 mpg, its hard to get it back up because you have to drive extra slow. but to answer your question yes I should have gotten somewhere around 430 miles

I average 29-30 mpg. I see people posting on putting the display on "Instant" economy? How do you do that on a base Forte 5?

Since installing the 6th CAI, and resetting my ECU last week, I am happy to announce that I now have an increase of 4mpg. My driving is mixed, with highway being stop and go for about 1/4 to 1/2 of the time. 32mpg avg so far. And I haven't been grandma-ing it either.

On my SX, if you hit the enter key on the steering wheel, it will switch from your two trip counters, and the third screen is the instant economy gauge.

The computer in my car is consistently 2 mpg higher than the calculated mpg. I've driven the car 23,000 miles and this has not changed at all. My actual mpg is around 30, but the computer says 32.

Be happy, mines 24 on the display, 22 actual. And that's driving like an old lady
That's how mine was all summer. Now I'm sitting at 16.1mpg on the gauge. Just likeep you I'm driving like a grandma.

Mine went up to 24.9 after finally giving in and hitting the Ecco button . If it's off I get 21-22 mpg . I'm hoping after he oil change , SRI install and intercooler I'll get some increase after I get over the extra power and playing with it for a while

Remove the foot from the throttle body lol, I by no means drive easy and always in manual mode / ECO off (ECO was turned off since I bought the car) and normal every day commuting I am at 28-30 mpg and on road trips with cruise set at 75 mph I range from 36-38 mpg. At 80 mph+ mpg just goes to crap. The worst I had was 18 mpg but that was 1/2 tank ran out at the track.

I actually think my milage is not bad considering where we live now . I have to drive up a mountain daily . When I went to the shore my milage goes up to 30-32 and that's spirited driving . When we move in the summer I expect it to go down since I won't me in the mountains anymore lol . But yeah I need my foot off the TB ha ha . I here a car rev and I'm like Forehead Nose Cheek Chin Hairstyle

Good point the biggest hill I deal with is a overpass

Mine averages around 30-33 at 75mph. I have never seen better yet unless going down hill. I go through a lot of gas when I do canyon runs because of constantly being in boost. If I drive easy in town and highway I still don't get the greatest mpg. I am hoping when I get my DP installed in the next few weeks it will help bring it back a bit
