Just wondering what everyones thoughts were regarding my mpg.

Was expecting a little better than this.

Thoughts?

is that city, highway, average, what?

epa ratings were 21 city, 31 highway and 25 combined.

Sorry, forgot to mention.

3/4 of driving is highway, traveling 60-65 miles per hour.

Other 1/4 is city. So it looks as though it's bang on.

For some reason I believed I'd be in the early 30's

the site I got that from (EPA) stated this was the revised mpg statement using the newer (2008) methods. I believe the newer methods resulted in generally a lower number than the original methods did. They changed it to more accurately reflect real world results, which were generally lower than what the EPA used to provide.
