I'm in a suburb of Portland, Oregon. Mine has 157k on it. With a rush hour commute (lots of stop & go) I average around 44 mpg. On the freeway averaging around 75 mph it gets around 53-54 mpg. Best ET so far is 17.06 at a higher elevation track in Billings, MT. Ran it this past weekend in Medford, OR (1500' elevation but 95° day), ran consistent 17.30's without launching too hard.
