Awesome!! I thought something was wrong with my car. My MPG is about 11 to 16mpg with my style of driving as well! A loooong way off from the 42 and 30-something figures that I see people throwing around on these boards.

Often I feel as though at the end of a 30 minute journey the needle seems to move several tics toward empty. But car is just about 2 months still enjoying it

I can't drive with Sport on all the time though, because in traffic it produces a very jerky ride.
