My 03 6I would get 30-35 and the 14 6GT is giving me 30-35 so no real difference for me lol. Cruise actually gives me better MPG so I try to utilize it more. I'm not in hilly country though. Mostly 85% highway. One month and I'm at 4500 miles. Yes I will be close to 50 K in one year.....

I can see this car taking it to 300K easily with good maintenance.

I haven't seen any other 14 6's on the road. Tons of Sonatas though lol. That rear is similar lol.

Nice! I haven't had a full highway experience for more than about 10 minutes but right after a fill up and getting on the highway I was seeing numbers in the 39 mpg range! but that quickly dropped down to 31 when I got into town

I beat my previous record of 31.4 mpg (set a few weeks ago lol) now my high on my last tank was 32.4

Wow, you all are getting great mileage compared to me. I just filled up yesterday and did a quick (trip odometer / fill up gallons) to get 25.6 MPG. I was really close to 30 MPG until I hit two really bad days of highway traffic and it took an hour to go 11 miles. Two days in a row! I was furious. However, I'm happy my car's reading of "Average MPG" is pretty accurate as it had me at 26 MPG.

Manual calc showed 36.7

Keep in mind that my wife's daily work drive is 90% at constant 55-65 mph with cruise on, but happy to see the AVG figure nearing the EPA HWY figure
