The mileage is still not Good.  See:

Everything above 40 mpg is around town, suburban, everything below 40 is on the highway, on a trip, 70 mph plus. 

 

I have been using 50 psi for over a hundred thousand miles with no problems, and again if you are ever in the Atlanta Area we could try your car on my test loop to compare cars MPG's to see if their is a problem.

 

  We could also put My ScanGaugeII on it to see what's going on. :headscratch:

The mileage is getting better.  I can now get 40 mpg on the highway at 70 mph, but very tailwind sensitive.  Since most of my driving is not highway, my overall average based 100% on fileup data has just crossed over 40 mpg.  I am satisfied with the mileage now.

The first 5,000 miles don't really mean much and if it's wintery where you are it's even worse. I bought mine on Halloween 2014 and by April I was down to 32.2 mpg, right now I'm at 42.6 mpg, be patient.

You are right, it has gotten better.

I have to update this topic, I am now solidly getting over 40 mpg.  My last fill up was 47.4 mpg at just over 30,000 miles.  It just gets better and better, even with a few full throttle blasts in traffic, and going between 70 and 73 mph on the highway.  It definitely likes winding and even hilly roads, where the speeds are like in the 50-60 mph.  Hills don't bother it, it seems to average them out.  I am very pleased with the car.  Too bad 2018 is the last year for it in the USA.

Glad your mileage is better.  I'm convinced hills can help save gas - and easier than pulse and glide!  Was just down your way for the eclipse - went right by Vonore taking "back roads" down to Sweetwater.  I guess you watched it from your back yard.  Got 56 mpg coming home due to slow traffic and taking side roads.  Saw some beautiful country - but it took almost twice as long!  Should have waited another day.
