Just wondering what kind of city mpg people have been getting with economy minded driving habits. Is the stated mpg of 27 pretty accurate or are people getting better numbers as is evident for hwy? I am about to get a new car and I am on the fence between a 2012 volt with very low mileage (~1,000) vs a 2015 cruze diesel. Price is similar for both. I know overall I can't beat the Volt as my commute will be short (a few miles mostly 35 mph) but still am leaning towards diesel for a few reasons: 1. I am young and know I will likely be driving an electric vehicle someday and have always been attracted to diesel engines. 2. I may not have reliable charging all the time for a volt. However if 27 mpg or sub 27 is accurate, I may have to bite the bullet and opt for the volt which of course wouldn't be the end of the world as it were. Thanks for any info you guys can provide.
