The 28i has 240HP at 5,500 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque at 1,250 rpm. The 30i has 255HP at 6,600 rpm and 220 lb-ft of torque at 2,600 rpm. It's the torque that really makes the difference. It seems to make solid power right off the line and keeps going.

Gas mileage wise the 28i is listed at 22 city and 34 hwy while the 30i is listed at 18 city and 28 hwy. I averaged about 25.5 mpg in the 30i and although I have only put about 600 miles on the new 28i, I'm averaging 30.5 mpg.

The 30i was a quite motor and the 28i has a louder exhaust note which (to me anyway) makes it sound more like a sports car.
