You should have your car checked out, even the mook's at R&T got 40mpg in their tests and they are all quite lead-footed. I couldn't get that poor mileage if I tried. Our teenaged son drove my CT for a few days and even he got in the high 38's.My sentiments exactly. The 4 banger is loud with no guts for freeway driving, but then again, it's an econo-car. I just wish I was getting great gas mileage like some other drivers are reporting on this forum. My average is around 32-36 mpg and I've never gotten over 40 mpg even on a good day.
