HIGHWAY MPG thread for both 2.0 and 2.5 w/poll!!

I know we have a MPG thread already but its not clear if its a poll for the 2.0, or 2.5 motor and i dont think the results are very valuable right now, a few people mentioned a new poll for the 2.5 so i decided to make this thread. Vote in the poll and lets see what the results are once more, this time with more clarity!

Maybe we should also have manual/automatic selections too.

I guess my thought was that the list would be awfully long with all the different combinations.

Maybe the best way would be to have 2 separate poll threads...One for the 2.5L and the other for the 2.0L?

Or the list can be super long. I guess it's not that big of a deal.

i think the AT and MT are pretty close in mpg, the bigger differences would be 2.0 vs 2.5. Gotta draw the line somewhere or else we'll end up with lists for every trim too lol.

I've been averaging between 36-38mpg, according to the pump. I think that you will find that manual transmission will probably be 5-10% higher than automatics, despite the slightly lower EPA estimates.

Ugh I voted wrong. On the highway, I've probably been getting 43mpg+. Its very difficult to tell highway MPG considering that the cars calculations can be optimistic by as much as 3-4mpg.

I don't have a lot of fill-ups yet to fully give an accurate picture, but my signature is click-able, and the symbols dictate what type of driving and fuel were associated with each tank. Fill ups with E10 (10% ethanol) are making a bigger difference than I expected, in both drive quality and consumption so I think I'm going to stick without the E10 fuel whenever possible.

I find the automatic gearbox geared too tall; there's enough gear hunting between 6-5th gears to wonder if 2 overdrive gears was really necessary. A properly-geared vehicle revs around the torque peak at normal highway cruising speeds (130-150km/h), yet this one is geared to only run 150km/h @ 2750rpm in 6th so even the slightest hill yields a downshift.
