37-38

Its been warming up here, My aver. mpg when I reset it on the highway has been in the 37-39. When I get in the city of course it drops. My wife kills the milage 32 mpg after she drives. She is in and out of the throttle to much. My Cruze is a LTZ

On a 275 mile trip today I averaged 73MPH and 35.4MPG (from the tank fill up, not DIC, DIC said 36.8MPG). Everytime I catch up to a trucker in the passing lane, I'll get up within a car length to draft, and for about 115 miles I had a strong tail wind, which also helped my mileage quite a bit.

I'm extremely glad I have the Cruze, like mentioned before it's uber quiet, rides like a dream, and the mileage isn't so bad either haha. My last vehicle could maybe average 17MPG on a flat road going highway speeds with a tailwind, otherwise it was around 13MPG.
