Ignore the horrible picture quality (my phone camera is junk all the sudden) and the current AVG (just got the car out of the shop for DEF issues.) I'm actually hoping to beat this number this weekend on my little roadtrip.

Since my 2012 ECO MT pegs out at 50 MPG I've had to look at this in L/100KM. Converting back to MPG my best for 500 miles has been 4.4 L/100 KM, which converts to 53.5 MPG. I had a 1200 mile stretch where the rolling average remained pegged at 50 MPG.

I had a 48.3 on my 500 prior to a BCM update last year. Since then I've only been able to get it back up to 46.6. My 25/50 are 67.8/66.7, but most of my driving is in 100-150 mile trips with some city driving between them, so I never get in a good, solid 500 in one stretch to get that last average up there.

53.8 MPG. Then I reset it and am down to 52.4 MPG. 95% of my 140 mile r/t drive is highway, and what isn't highway is still 55 MPH with no stop lights and only slowing for turning traffic. I have found my optimal speed is 62 MPH, so even on the 70 MPH highway I'm the a-hole in the right lane doing well under the speed limit.

Hey, it only adds ten minutes to my drive but takes fuel economy from mid-40's to nearly mid-50's. Time is money, right?

My best ever 500 was 51.2; then I had some work done on the car and it reset everything (I was not happy). Since then, my best has been 44.9 just having fun with the car. MPG is great, but it's not everything. Sometimes that feeling of getting sucked back into your seat trumps all.
