    My average MPG counter is consistently high, even though I reset it at every fill.

    And of course, driving style is a big factor. Using cruise control liberally on highway driving should net you some extra gains. Ultimately though, it's a performance sports sedan...fuel economy is not top of the priority list when designing it, so we shouldn't expect to be blown away by high MPG when driving it.
    Interesting: I was going to respond to your earlier quote regrading "I highly recommend resetting the average counter every now and then", but I put some thought into it instead. My initial thought was that your contention was less than ideal, as a larger sample size of mileage would result in more accurate data. I suppose though that there is validity in resetting from time to time, as large changes in driving habits after long periods of NOT resetting the the mileage counter would not reflect in the "average" displayed.

    I honestly believe that resetting every fill up is too often. Also, if one is calculating mileage manually based on miles driven versus gallons boarded, one is probably not considering that very innocuous note that appears on every gas pump stating that "volumes are corrected to 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit), which can certainly effect the calculations in extreme temperature conditions... All of which brings me back to the idea that resetting the "average mileage counter" at every fill up is a bit too often.

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    Now with 2500 miles. Mileage steadily increasing. Tried a couple of tanks with regular, and the mileage seemed a bit less than with premium, and more turbo lag at low rpm, too. Currently at 26.5 mpg with an average speed of 30 mph, which I feel is really good, though on premium. Just after filling up, I got on the highway for 12 miles, then three miles suburban driving, and ended the trip at 34 mpg. I believe it might even do a bit better with a longer distance. Considering it's only rated at 30 mpg highway, I'm pretty satisfied. At similar speeds and conditions, my V would get 16-17 mixed, and 22 on the highway, and I thought that was great for a supercar, but the range with an 18 gallon tank really sucked. Now, with 16.5 gallons, I routinely go 340-350 miles between fill ups, which works out to twice a month, and I doubt I could out-last the tank on the highway. The car isn't completely broken in yet, so my mileage may improve even more. I will update again in a few months.

    2.0T rear wheel drive with 6-speed manual, burning 93 octane, computer averaging 28 mpg. Instantaneous mpg is around 35-38 on flat road on the turnpike at 80 mph in 6th gear. Have 1400 miles on odometer. I am very satisfied with the fuel efficiency.

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    Just rolled over 5k miles on my 2.0T AWD. Overall have gotten 25mpg. 22 in town and 28 on a 2600 mile road trip. Probably could have done better on the road but did a lot of mountain driving and took advantage of the turbo and the right pedal.

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    777 Miles logged - Daily commute to work 3x week is 20+/- miles highway with no traffic and I average 26 on that. Other days I am almost all city driving which is driving down my overall MPG. According to the OnStar app my lifetime MPG is 21

    3.6 awd, 2000 miles averaging around 20. Actually pretty surprised it's not better. Even when I reset it and drive pretty gingerly, only 22-23.

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    I haven't seen 17 yet. My trips are mostly short and are averaging 14.6 mpg after four weeks. If the sticker had been more accurate, I probably would have bought a different car. The plus side is using regular gas--not possible with my Mercedes 280 SLK (former car). However, that doesn't average out dollar-wise for the miserable mileage. Hope it gets better as my ATS ages. Other than that, I like the car.

    22-23 800 miles on the clock 50/50 mix of city and hwy. 2.0 T. I am tickled to death with that since I came out of a CTSV that got about 14 mpg downhill in a tailwind.
