Smile Average MPG?

Whats everyones average miles per gallon here. I'm assuming we all have the digital gauge that shows your avg mpg.

Mine is at a sad 19.0. I need to find a way to get it up higher because this feels really low. I also never use anything lower then 93 premium octane. Thinkin about some lucas fuel treatment cleaner.

if i go WOT around town and drive agressive...around 11 MPG. not kidding..when i first bought the car i never drove conservative..and was freakin out like wow only 11 MPG. but after i learned to control the throttle.. i was able to get it up to 14-15..and if i drive pretty carefully never goin above 2500 RPMS i can get the 15-17. im going to do a seafoam intake clean out which should help my gas since its never been done in 15 years. and maybe the fuel filter if its not too rusted.

17 to 19 city and 22 to 23 highway which is not good at all.

I just sold my 2002 Mercedes Benz C32 AMG with many mods putting down 338.6 Rear Wheel Horse Power and 403HP at the fly wheel and I got better mileage then my 2001 SSEi.

Why do these cars get such bad mileage? Maybe weight difference also as this is a much larger car then the C32 AMG.

I probably get 17-18 city with easy driving and 28-30 highway. But, I haven't driven a lot on the highway, and don't drive easy too often in the city either. I don't gun it and race around, but I don't lolligag either.

About that, perhaps a bit lower & no MPG computer, I drive little if any highway & too much construction & traffic to get any realistic readings here... even the highway can be bumper to bumper.
