2017 Manual Sedan, 46.1 average over three fill-ups of 51.1 (largely highway @73ish), 44.88, and 42.34 (lots of idling with AC running). Curious to see how it averages out over a longer period.

The lifetime average is in my fuelly sig -- 56.3. Best tank so far is 60 MPG. I live in a rural area, so almost 100% of my miles are highway of some sort except for the last fraction of a mile or so.

My best 25-mile average is 72 MPG. I got that running the air conditioner and in kind of a hurry to get where I was going.

Even when I have some extra city driving or other things that drag down fuel economy, I'm still beating the EPA highway estimate. Every single tank I've run has been higher than 52 MPG.

I'm ecstatic over the fuel economy with this car. Even when it's bad, it's really good.

My first 3 tanks came in at 51.4, 50, and 55.4 MPG. I'll eventually add my Fuelly to my signature like Johnmo, but for now my post count is too low for images. For now, here's the link. Cruze (Chevrolet Cruze) | Fuelly

In general, I drive about 25-30% of my time in city-type driving. A lot of my improvement has come from figuring out the transmission better. The trip computer makes me miss my ScanGaugeII, but it works well enough to give some feedback.

That's quite close to my lifetime average for my 296cc bike. I'm really pretty shocked at the figures this car is producing. The best tank I got with my 1.4L manual gasser was a shade over 48 MPG but it was very difficult to achieve.
