I'm semi-mountain living and after checking 3 fill-ups back to back I now know my average of 46 is no fluke, I'm being serious. One tank gave me an average of 63 per gallon I kid you not. But I just installed some snow tires so I suspect I'll take a hit.

I just averaged 50-53 mpg on a 600 mile road trip to Tennessee. Then I averaged about 35-37 mpg while offroading for 200 miles and about 40 mpg (average speed was about 75) on the return 600 miles. Mind you, my car sits higher than stock. It's not hard to get good numbers in these cars if your engine is healthy and your foot isn't lead. Shoot, I spent a lot of that 200 miles idling and doing donut...er...cheerios. :D
