250 give or take 15. I've made 300+ a few times when I was broke as hell for a lil bit and on a budget. Never let rpms past 2k and accelerated slow as hell. I was like a grandma haha.

Lead foot eh? Lol. I use the freeway on my way to work everyday and I use cruise control, it may be set at 75 but at least I'm not on and off the gas! Haha. My average gas tank is probably 60% freeway miles and 40% in town.

I get around 180 at 12 mpgs. That was the first week I had it so I was far from economical. Now I'm trying to see how high I can get the mpgs. I'm shooting for 20mpgs, unrealistic but whatever.

With my 07 5 speed, I drive about 99% freeways at exactly 60 miles a day, 5 days a week with a liquor store run on Saturdays, I'm at just over 300 per tank. I don't jackrabbit start and shift before 2500 rpms unless there is some jack wagon in the righthand left turn lane before I get into the freeway by my house, then it red line until I make the turn to avoid them cutting me off to get into the highway because that lane runs out. I don't usually floor it and keep speed under 65. I live 3 minutes off the freeway and work right off the freeway.

I get 200 MPT, but that's only 10-11 gallons when it is a 15.9 gallon tank. Ever since I put my reverse glow gauges on the gas gauge gets a little sticky especially on the highway. I've never seen above 20 mpg.
