Default 13 turbo owners MPG

I'm just curious what other tubo owners are getting for mileage. I currently have 1700 miles on a 13 2lz, it's been tuned since I brought her home. I'm averaging (manual calculated) 22.4 in town (91 octane), I have a 12 mile commute to work average speed of 38 mph. I've only had her on the highway for 1 short trip (200 miles) and I got roughly 27MPG on that one.

600 miles of combo driving at an average speed of 38 mph and several 10 minute warm-ups the DIC says 24.8

FWIW:

My wife has only had her new 2LT for a few days and it has less than 400 miles on it, but on a short trip earlier today of about 100 miles or so (2 lane highway @ roughly 62 mph) she averaged 32mpg.

The drive was conservative and a deliberate intention to NOT use the turbo brought about the, what we consider, pretty good highway mileage.

Nice car, we like it.

Very interesting numbers, as stated mine is tuned and on this last Tank I had several WOT runs up to 130mph for data logging. It will be interesting to see what I get on this next tank as anytime I load a map it resets the fuel trims (learned data). I need to get her on a trip to see what the Highway mileage will be like. Even tuned I'm getting better than EPA estimates.

I filled up the day I posted this and have driven 112 miles. I've haven't done any WOT pulls and I'm pleasantly surprise with the Average MPGs on the DIC. Currently it shows 24.7.

Other than no WOT driving, I'm driving the car the same as the previous tank.

Will be interesting what I get manually calculated on the next fill up.

FWIW the next fill up was yesterday and I got 24.4 MPG by the DIC and 24.49 manually calculated. Average speed was 31 MPH.

I did not have any WOT pulls, but I did drive aggressive.

I'm very pleased!
