Real World MPG

I've been reading that people are getting WAY lower than the sticker's advertised MPG. What are you guys finding?

Has anyone done real world testing and not relied on the computer for their data?

My experience is that you can not rely on the dashboard gadget to give you an accurate reading.......I get about 15.3 mpg on average...total combined

Not fussing at you. Not really a mistake, but we really do already have an enormous amount of threads on the mileage subject -- 2 1/2 years worth. We really don't need another one.

I have found the display to be accurate, it agrees with my calculator that I get 12.5mpg. I bought it used, when I looked at the display on the test drive it was at 14.9. They must have reset it and jacked it up and let it run for a while to get the mpg up.

Reset it on the highway at a low speed and your MPG will look fantastico!
