Usually I don't let my car get below a 1/2-1/4 tank. If I do then the car starts to surge around corners if I take them with the slightest amount of speed. Filling up this regularly usually gets me 200-300 miles before fill-ups.

On my last fillup I calculated roughly 23.2mpg...a lot of highway, but a fair amount of city too. If I'm not mistaken, my SSEi is rated at around 25mpg highway, so that'* pretty good, no?

I get about 26mpg on average with about 50% highway and 50% city driving.

Winter seems to have killed my MPG a bit, but that was to be expected....when is spring?!
