Excellent Performance/MPG Balance

2011 Chevrolet Cruze Eco 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This car is really fun to drive. We have the six speed and it really excellerates through each shift especially just above 3000 rpm when you can feel the turbo come on. We have also been pleased with the local driving gas mile of 33-34mpg but I was looking forward to see what we would get taking daughter to college. Just got back and were very pleased! Fully loaded on trip down averaging 65-70mph on first tank 39.6mpg, second tank ave 75-78mph got 36.4 and then on way back with just two of us on first tank ave 75-78 40.8mpg and second tank ave 65-68mph 43.2mpg. I think this is great for a car that is not a hybred and does not look like a hybred! US owned and made - nice job!
MPG, MPG, MPG
Like to see more options on Eco like wheel options, sunroof, etc (the std wheels look nice but I really like the sportier look of ours with the OEM alloy five spokes I added off ebay)
