Have had a Chevy Cruze turbodiesel with 6 speed manual for about 2 weeks now. Observations to follow as I discover the cars good and bad points...

Drafting Prius, garbage trucks on trash day, 10-speed bikes on a rainy day, Amish buggies going to market, school buses in the afternoons, municipal buses during rush hour, women pushing strollers, amazing to watch.

Congrats, Jack. And I may have to take you up on your FE challenge at some point. You know what I'll be driving. :D

Yeah: a big part of the equation is driver skill, and JON has me there!:)
Jon got close to 63 MPG on his trip out to Fest in Wisconsin last year. On biodiesel, which is ~5% lower in calorific content than D2. Works out to over 66 MPG on straight D2...
