Default MPG Reports?

How is everyone finding their gas consumption so far? With a MT I am using more than the Subaru stats, but I live in a really hilly area. Also I only have 700km or 430 miles on the clock. I assume it will get better once the engine has been run in.

I only have about 200 miles on mine and first tank of gas and it says I'm averaging just under 24mpg. However, I think that is factoring in the driving styles of the people that test drove before me and probably floored it everywhere to test it out.

I'm going to get a real world test on it on my second tank as well as again when I'm over 1,000 miles and compare. I also want to try to hyper mile it for a whole tank and see what the best MPG I can get with city driving. On top of that I will be driving cross–country in two weeks so I can get a chance to see how it does MPG–wise on the highway.

So far I'm happy with it and it's funny seeing the real–time MPG jump from 5 to 99.9 MPG.

I left the dealership, with 37 miles on the odometer, even with a supposedly full tank, with 12.8 Average MPG!!! By the time a re-filled, I got it up to 24 MPG. I figured it idled a lot at the dealership. I'm almost done with my 2nd tank and my average MPG is 29.1.

Nice, good to hear. How many miles do you have on it now?

I think I'm about to hit 700. Sorry, I take the train to work. I haven't seen my car since Sunday.

After about 500 miles in some hilly snowy terrain I've gotten 27.6 mpg with an average 27 mph. I haven't taken it on any road trips yet but I'm already impressed.

Driving my XV 5 speed home to CT after buying it in south Florida. Put 350 or so miles on it before I began the drive. I have the whole car packed and a big 29er mountain bike on the roof. I'm currently stopped over in Virginia and am getting 27mpg driving 75 the whole way. I would say that's pretty damn good. Should easily get over 30 doing 65-70 without all the weight and bike on top.

Just put my second tank of gas in the Crosstrek, averaged 25 on my first with mostly city driving with a little off roading mixed in. I think my second tank will average even better. So far I'm very impressed.

Drove up to Killington for the day for some snowboarding. Cruising around 68 most of the way back, with a bumper to bumper traffic jam that lasted more than an hr, I was able to average 31 MPG. It was about 170 miles each way. Car now has just over 1,800 miles.

Nice. Some reviews I were reading people were saying the Crosstrek was getting "as low as 12mpg" and such. I think they don't realize that, yes, since the engine is small and has to work hard it will dip down to a pretty low MPG, but you have to look at the overall average which, so far, has been awesome.
