Re: '14 - Roll call for MPG figures

Chicago to Racine Wisconsin to Chicago

Chicago IL elevation 597 ft (182 m)
Racine WI elevation 618 ft (188 m)<table class="infobox geography vcard"><tbody><tr class="mergedtoprow"><td>
</td><td>
</td></tr></tbody></table>I do all my testing at set speeds of 60 and 70 mph on cruise control on the highway. Compared to my Subaru Legacy (turbo)which requires premium gas, weighs 3300 lbs not 5000, and has a CoD of 0.29, I am extremely satisfied. Compared to my Subaru Forester (N/A) I am very satisfied.

HIGHWAY DATA ONLY

Saturday 04-May-2013 @ 18:00 hrs
50 miles
cruise control at 60 mph and driven by wifey
28.9-29.1 mpg
Less than 1/4 fuel tank
2 people - light luggage (1 backpack)

Sunday 05-May-2013 @ 18:00 hrs
50 miles
cruise control at 70 mph and driven by me
27.0-27.3 mpg
full fuel tank
2 people - light luggage (1 backpack)

My dad (who drove separately on Saturday) came back driving the Forester. The Forester(2.5L H4, Normally Aspirated, Curb Weight 3300 lbs; 5MT) managed 31.5 mpg (same speed of 70 mph on cruise control).
