Here in the Atlanta, GA area I have been getting about 40 mpg. I had a tank low of 37 mpg. I just don't see how people get over 40 mpg unless they live in a flat area or only go downhill. This area is nothing but hills.

Toronto, ON

Average since getting the car in Dec 2011 is 4.8L/100km
I expect it to go up since winter is coming up, and last winter was very mild.

Note that this is the reading on the computer, actual average is ~ 5.0L/100km

It'll be in the signature :)

Location - Bristol, i.e. most of the time I'm doing city driving with the occasional escape to faster roads. MPG is sadly on the downward slope again because :

It's getting colder and the car keeps the engine on more
School's are back ... the school run has extremely nasty effects on traffic conditions here

Vancouver WA (Close to Portland Or) 40 mile round trip to work
42 MPG at the pump after break in

I have a lot of highway potential on my way to work, and on the weekends. The more traffic the better the mileage :)
Gave up on the hypermiling, bought this car to enjoy the ride :)

I can see this being the case for hilly areas. Here in socal, I get good gas mileage but when I hit the mountain roads with low to mid inclines, I notice my mpg drop about 4+mpg, especially when trying to maintain speed.

What was your average mpg when you were taking that road trip? When I drove from WA to AZ, my average was around 30, but i was going 80+ majority of the way :p

The trouble is with going uphill, not only I have to apply more power, I usually seem to be accelerating uphill too because there was a red light at the bottom.

If you need to drive 80+ you're definitely in the WRONG car:) I got in the mid 44's on our road trip and kept it between 65-70, thats definitely the shoulder of the curve for this car. If I was willing to get 30mpg I'd be driving a 128, not a CT:) for similar money. But for me, the mileage is king, and the CT gives everything else i need .

Yeah, on an open road I do feel the car is lacking in power but the 128 is too small. Plus I love the design of the ct and the car fits my needs (minus highway driving thrills :rolleyes:).
