With ~1,000 miles on the vehicle during a 300 mile round trip I registered 24.3mpg going averaging 70mph the entire drive. Had a head wind going and tail wind coming back, about the same wind speed. I was being easy on the gas peddle to register 24.3mpg. That's the price of the turbo I guess! The power came in handing during it's first offroad trip; with ~600 miles on the odometer I ran it on the sand for 80 miles soft & packed combination and registerd 17.4mpg.

Also, with a full load and a kayak on top the vehicle gets ~20mpg going 70mph. I'm curious to see what it does pulling my light utility trailer with 2 kayaks.
