Capisce here--original author of this review. I need to clarify my statements on MPG. While I achieve 44 mpg HIGHWAY (employing some hyper-miling techniques), I inadvertently over-reported my city MPG as 38/39 mpg. Actually, 38/39 mpg is my COMBINED city/highway MPG. I just realized that I've kept the multi-function read-out on AVERAGE MPG per TANK. In order to accurately report city mpg I'd have to keep this multi-function read-out on real-time mpg. Sorry for any confusion. FYI, I take at least one long weekend trip per month (500+ miles r/t). One route takes me on interstates (70/75 mph) up and down mountains and yields 39 mpg. The alternate route--a little longer in both time and distance--uses U.S. highways with a lower speed limit (60/65 mph) and a few traffic signals. This route--with less traffic--also skirts the mountains by sticking mostly to foot-hills, and yields 42 to 44 mpg. During the week I drive the car every-other day perhaps 3 miles on secondary roads (complete with stop signs and traffic signals). Max speed is 30/35 mph. It seems that I use approx 2/3 of each tankful on the long highway trip and the remaining 1/3 in local "city" driving. This explains why my final reading before filling up has never fallen below 38/39 mpg (but I need to remember that this is my COMBINED mpg). Apologies for any confusion--I did not realize I was inadvertently representing my COMBINED MPG as my CITY MPG. CAPISCEReport it
