1,850 Miles-48.04 Miles Per Gallon

2479 5
I was hoping this car would hit the magic 48 MPG actual, and it did. This is my best run yet. As the photos show, my DIC is over 4% optimistic. The actual hand calculated data is 1,850.8 miles, 38.526 gallons(US), 48.040 Miles Per Gallon. Not much of my driving is city-but I do have some traffic lights & stop signs. With cooler weather happening & going back to 87 octane, this number is now dropping. Stay tuned for future results.

Very nice numbers! Sounds like you're really getting your money's worth out of that car! Eco MT FTW!
My two previous new vehicles got to within 1-2 MPG of the EPA Highway rating. That is all I expected when I bought this Cruze last year. How wrong I was to see how it can consistently beat the EPA Highway rating by 5-15%. Since new & over 21,000 miles, it has averaged 44.37 MPG. Since early April & over 8,800 miles, it has averaged 46.67 MPG-all numbers are actual calculated, not DIC.
