Guys, 29-30 mpg in an SSEi isn't freakish. You have to remember that most performance mods will increase efficiency if you keep your foot out of it.

I got a 180 and getting 25-28 and that'* mixed driving. Before I was getting 19, but I had a bad O2 sensor, so look into that if your getting crappy gas mileage.

Especially last winter. Last Jan for twenty straight days the temp never got above 0 degrees. At night -10 to -15 below 0. Talk about a heating bill.
