Your gas mileage is about on par with my 2.5. Driving habits play a big part in this equation. When I bought mine used the dash display showed the fuel consumption of the previous owner and boy did they have a lead foot!

You've got a turbo so measure in smiles per gallon not miles per gallon. 馃槃

But what's your dash say the average mpg is? Driving behavior plays a big part and I don't think the turbo models are supposed to use 87. If you happen to be in CA note that our gas sucks, burns cleaner and burns faster. When I do road trips I get 10-15% better fuel economy out of state.

I'd say that's a typical mpg to expect. My NA gets about the same with all the stop and go around town. I can get up to 30 on long freeway drives sailing along at 65mph. Any faster and it dips to 25-26. When I bought mine my jaw dropped seeing the previous owners average mpg at 18mpg! I'm pretty sure they mainly drove around town and lived in San Francisco where there's tons of hills and stop signs.
