Just came back from 1600 mile roadtrip. Car still in breakin, now has 3068 total miles.

Two adults, two dogs, fully loaded trunk. A/C on the entire way.
Had cruise set on 72 on way up. Got 52.2 mpg.

Set cruise on 75 on return, got 53.1 mpg. On one stretch of about 150 miles, turned cruise off and stretched the mpgs by constant throttle position, letting the mph run up and down. MFI went to 56.2 avg.

Man, this car just eats up the highway!

I had 75 miles to my next known good fueling source and with Sunday traffic I didn't want to chance running out and I fueled up early.

Outstanding MPG. What tires/size are you running?

Michelin Primacy MXM4's, stock size for the SE which I think is 215/55-17, 38psi. I lost just over 1 mpg going to these tires from the OEM Hancraps, but the increase in handling and decrease in noise is more than worth it.
