I average 16-17 just in city driving. With the manual, you are able to disengage the transmission and coast to a stop a lot of times. Since the city has a stop light at every intersection, I tend to just move off in first and disengage and the car has enough momentum to reach the other light. If you catch the timing of the lights then you can just keep on rolling and shift to 2nd and so on. I'm planning a trip to DC soon so I am dying to see what I can get on the highway.
