Most around town stuff (10mile commute, plus an SF/SC trip tossed in) yields 21-22.

When I really hammer on it I expect nothing more than 18.
Thats rediculous. Is that going by your obc? Ashlins obc says between 14&15 strictly town, however she floors it all the time it seems like (women SMH). When we took it to the beach and to Tennessee we got about 25 highway which is pretty good. I wish I could drive it for a full tank and see what the mpg would be.
