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.
    Ok so I waited for a couple of complete cycles to work and a trip today and the mileage did go down but still stands at 29.2 which is alot better than the 22 to 24 that I was getting for the previous 2000 miles. I really can't explain the first day unless I had a good tail wind on the ride into work? But still I will take 29+ MPG any day of the week. I would be curious to see if any one else has the same experience.

    Bear in mind that if you've got the Driver Assistance Package (adaptive cruise control), the sensors take the place of the automatic air dams in the grill, negating whatever efficiency bonuses it would provide... I didn't realize that the sensors replaced the air dam before I bought the car... Not sure if I would have opted for that package had I known.

    A lot of you guys and gals are getting much worse mileage than we got in our 3.0L cts.
    A recent trip to amelia island netted us 27 mpg and trips to DC have netted us 28.3. These are averages for the entire trip. Cruise was set at x79-80 mph.
    Even a few dips into the throttle and a couple of transmission kickdowns can ruin your average.

    It's amazing the effect of temperature on mileage. This weekend, I hit 1000 miles. Simultaneously, spring finally arrived in the south, with the temperature shooting 20-30 degrees, to the mid 70s. I got gas, had some traffic before getting on the highway, then after a 13 mile trip was getting 34.5 mpg, doing 60-70 and averaging 47 mph per the computer, which beats the EPA, and the car isn't really broken in yet. After a few days of city driving, my mileage has been 24 with an average speed of 30 mph, which is my benchmark average speed. In comparison, my CTS-V would get 16.5-17 mpg (manual transmission), and my '08 CTS 3.6 DI with a stick would get 20-21 mpg, both cars fully broken in, of course.

    The last few days, it got cold again, and the mpg started decreasing again; then today, it warmed up again, and the mpg started to rise again. Hopefully, the same thing will happen for others, and the fleet mileage will improve dramatically. I for one am pleased that my car is now meeting or beating the EPA estimates, and I expect it will improve further as the car contimues to break in.

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    I had to make a trip from Philly to DC and back yesterday. On the way to DC I decided to test the highway mileage of my 2.0T (manual) so I set the cruise to 65 mph. Traffic was light and was pretty much always at this speed except for slowing for toll booths. I got 31.5 mpg for the trip. On the way back I drove more like I normally do (70-80 mph) and the traffic was heavier requiring more slow downs. I got 29.5 mph. In my daily stop and go commute I only get ~20 mpg.

    Half hour commute, congested highway and clear city. Kept revs under 2k. I know not much fun, but was calming.

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    I was initially disappointed with my gas mileage (posted earlier in this thread). Now have almost 5,000 miles on the car. This last tank has been almost exclusively freeway driving. Taken it easy for almost all of the driving, other than entrance ramps which I always take spiritedly. Over 357 miles I've burned around 11 gallons of (premium) gas (according to OnStar app - likely it is closer to 12 gallons, but the app does not have a very high resolution, i.e., only displays full gallons). The DIC is reporting an average of 28.1 mpg. Not stellar, but I didn't buy this car for gas mileage. Bought it for fun and it is definitely fun. Long story short, I am happier with the fuel efficiency at this point than I was earlier.

    **Forgot to mention - Cars is a 2.0T manual**
