The EPA estimates and manufacturers' are a good barometer BUT, what MPG/MPL did you really get on your last tank of fuel?

It so happened 32.2 on the one vehicle with not much concern, meaning I paid little attention as I would have ordinarily driving, I did sum (rushing around) before the colder weather, getting some projects done. Thankful fuel prices have dropped a better percentage.

33.7 in my Cruze...hehe I have a lead foot, so to me that is pretty awesome...I have learned though, the more you use the cruise control the better the MPG!

Doesn't matter to me in the least as we purchase our vehicles for functionality, safety and comfort...if it should happen to get decent fuel economy we consider it a "perk" and never the reason for purchasing the vehicle.

Yesterday I refueled, averaged 32.3 on the Fit, I do better normally but the tires need an inflation boost. The last time the daily temps were still reaching near 80 F degrees.
