I have a 5 speed v6 and the mpg just really depends on speed,traffic,etc... I can easily get 23 mpg though and that's city, I'm not sure on highway.

depends on how you drive it. main reasons are that manual transmissions use far less power compared to an auto. and manual transmissions tend to have a lower high gear and final gear ratio. allowing the engine to basically idle at 60 mph
