I'm averaging around 25-27 mpg combined in comfort mode. Is it just me or everyone else getting really crappy mileage too?

We only have 1700 miles on ours. Mostly city driving (60%), between 19-23 mpg. Hopefully this improves as the engine continues to break in.

A little under 20, but I drive in sports mode quite a bit with "fast starts."

Glad I'm not the only one to see poor MPG.

It all depends on how much I lay into the throttle and the way I drive it. 25 to 27 when cruising around and 17 to 20 when having fun.

These numbers are for US mpg aren't they, because they would be appalling if they were UK mpg. I have been taking it very carefully under my car got to the 1000 mile mark but I'm getting around 34-35 UK mpg which I think is about 29 US? I expect that will change when I drive more enthusiastically...............

23 MPG during Vegas summer with AC running the whole time.

Now cooler weather it is 25 MPG.

This all in comfort. MPG does not vary based on driving style for me.

I've got 15k on mine and the best I can get is 29 Hwy but generally around 22. You're doing good with 25+ cuz don't forget you're driving a car with nearly 300hp.

About 21-24mpg depending on how heavy my foot is:). What is surprising is that I am getting very close to the same mpg I got with my ATSV (464hp with 445ftlb of torque). Thought I would have done better with a 4 cylinder however with a tune and enthusiatic driving to get similar thrills as the ATSV i guess it does make sense.
