    I haven't seen any data logging, but my guess is GM has a pretty safe tune meaning rich to avoid leaning
    Out under high load up top on the rpm range. Maybe somebody could chime in who has seen some stock
    Tune data logs . My Subaru gained about 15-20% better mileage after my protune. Factory tune was
    Running very rich for general safety but translates into shite mileage.
    Factory tunes are cookie cutters they will run differently on every car. Some great some not so great.

    I'm driving a 2.0T RWD automatic with just over 5000 miles and I've been averaging 28.5 mpg, though admittedly my commute is almost entirely highway miles.

    Does the 6-sp auto have a sport mode option? If so, how many who have reported mpg data above drive in sport mode vs. regular mode? Is there an eco mode too?

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    Dont worry bud, im in bayside, queens. And I avg around 15mpg too. Ive only had the car for a weak and im not even driving it hard.
    Its mostly around 40 degrees right now but 15mpg.. just sucks. I hope breaking in the car a bit will do the trick..

    In the same driving conditions my 2011 dodge challenger V6 average 18MPG. But I hated that damn car.


    sucks....

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    This might just be anecdotal at this point but I have the AWD 2.0T and have about 2,200 miles on the car. I have been averaging about 22-24 MPG and that is about 80-90 Highway and I am really light on the throttle most of time. This past weekend I took a longer trip and just set the car on cruise for the 110 mile round trip and got almost 29.0 mpg and there a couple of fast speeds in there too. So I wanted to see if the cruise really made that big of a deal. This morning it was slightly snowing I filled up which is about 1 block form where I live and reset the AVG MPG gauge I did not warm up the car and it was about 32 degrees out. I set the cruise on my way to work. I hit every single red light which is 6 of them and then the 17 miles on the expressway. Using the crusie the entire time even between the lights and into the parking lot my car registered 33.7 MPG. I drove the same speeds as I always do on the express way in the morning with traffic between 55 and 70, always changing my speed by adjusting the cruise speed setting. So I will try this again on my way home and see if I get the same results but it is very odd that the cruise can change MPG by that much. Will update tomorrow with more results.

    It's called vacation...and my ATS was a really sweet ride. I finished my trip with just under 3 k miles an averaged 25 mpg for the trip. I experimented with gasoline alternating between premium and 87 by the tank. We were driving in pretty diverse weather....started out warm and returned to below freezing. For the last 250 miles I had the transmission in snow and ice mode.
