Divide miles driven by gallons used. Boom. Simple math.

I'll add that keeping a record of this also helps track performance of the car. The car's computers have gotten better, but a ton of data figured with good, old fashioned math is a great resource.

I use fuelly to record my fillups and my average mpg so far, is at 22.3 over the last 7 fills. Mostly city driving here in Irvine with 45-55mph speed limits and lots of stop and go from all the signals I hit and a/c always running.

Correct. Very little penalty for turbo with regard to MPG. I should add though, I only use 92 octane (93 not available in my area). On the 16' 6 I only used regular. There is a bit of penalty for gas cost.

I concur, I drive almost the same type of route and speed. If my car is on, so is the A/C. Getting 22.5 mpg also.
Look forward to an all highway trip in cooler temps with a/c off, to see why type of mpg can be obtained.
