Scosgt - appreciate the detailed reply. I guess nearly 19 combined is 5 off from the rated, so, geez, not that great! Ultimately, I guess that's not horrible but a lot below what I thought I was going to get! Anyway, car's going to be driven mostly by wife locally so I suspect I'll be more like in the 15 range...maybe less
Good tip on the Synthetic oil - seems liked you dumped the original oil right after your purchase.
GeorgiaBoy - thanks for sharing southern numbers! Good to hear your getting decent numbers - hopefully it will do much better on the highway - haven't take it out highway. My niece is at UGA - great area!
Agree I need to give it a few tanks, but was just pretty alarmed it burned 3/8 of a tank going just a few miles. I haven't yet had a fill up and I haven't really been paying that much attention to the computer MPG. It drives amazing and, as far as I can tell, there's nothing sounding wrong with the engine - it's quiet as hell.
