lol honestly if you're worrying about gas mileage you bought the wrong car haha

In all honesty though for the power you get the mileage isn't too bad.

On my trip to G14 I got 25.2 MPG on the trip over and 24.5 MPG on the way back. I average 21 to 22 when running back and forth to work which is better than my Silverado where I get only 15.

Yes, it does improve a little over time.

For instance, my trip to Atlanta and back (~1400 mile) last year when the car was brand new netted an average of 22.9MPG.

This year I averaged 24.2MPG. :)
Holy crap- I average around 16.8 BUT..... :D
