Gas Mileage - like a contest? - What is your MPG?

So, I have had my 2018 Eclipse SE for 1 month now, 1800 miles on it. I drive almost 100 miles a day. 45 miles one way to work, thru Chicago suburbs, not on the express way, a LOT of stop and go traffic. A few days ago on the way home I was able to average 31.0mpg

I did this with ECO mode OFF. I really cant stand driving with Eco ON. I think ECO probably turns off the turbo charger. To get 31.0mpg, with ECO off you have to drive very conservatively but it still drives better than with ECO ON. Someday, I will make a roadtrip and the expressway and then I can see what I can get for MPG, but overall I am pretty impressed.

It has been a bit of a transition for me though, I used to drive a Mini Cooper, and I can tell you I did not care about mileage there, performance was the madness!!!!

So what kind of mpg are others getting?

****, that’s impressive. I’m struggling to get 25-27, in eco, on a good day. It’s even worse not in eco with the extra grunt available. Do you leave the meter up, on the instrument cluster?

With Eco Off, Mine is on 7,5 L /100 KM if I drive like human being and in city, it goes to 6L if in Autobahn with constant Speed AVG 100 to 130 Km/h , if I press the Gas pedal always it will go to 9.8 to 10 L/100 KM. Usually one full tank will last almost 700 KM for me with Mix Driving Style .

Mine's a week old but I'm fairly impressed. I have a 34 mile (one-way) daily commute outside of Philadelphia which is mostly stop-and-go highway driving, like every other metro area on the east coast.

I should also mention that I have an SEL with the touring package, rated the lowest out of all the trim levels at 25 city/26 highway.
