You brag about power, I brag about MPG

I just got back from my spring break trip to Daytona Beach. I got some crap gas mileage for speeding, but when I didn't and conditions were optimal, I got 32.5mpg! Crazy huh?

What's everyone's max? if you guys track that stuff of course.

23 is my max with the EJ25. But I don't touch the freeway and the turbo is irresistable for me...

I'm hardcore.

Speaking of that I almost got TAKEN out by an out of control Honda on one of the local race spots today...Couldn't stay in his lane through the corner.

My WRX max was 31mpg on 91 octane (I get better mileage with 91 than 93 using cruise control for 100s of miles with both).

Oh and that was with me, my wife, and all our camping gear in the wagon, and 225mm tires... stock 205mm tires and just me would have been even better
