how much mpg are u guys getting? my car is bone stock and i treat her well (except when I get hyper sometimes)...i don't do crazy launches, I drive 70 using cruise control on the highway, shift b/w 3-3.5 and the best I can get is 18mpg!? I know it's an evo but damn! Reviews say mpg should be 17-22mpg, so why am I at the end of that spectrum?? Also please add highest number of miles you can drive without refilling! Mine was 230-something miles...peace :dancebanana:

My car is stock as well and i drive pretty much the same as you.
During my highway drive i drive around 70-75 and have gotten up to 24 mpg but am usually around 22, 23. Once i start driving around town ittl drop to around 20. Not sure how many miles on a tank iv gotten though havent really checked.

gotta love mpg talks about evo's... I am used to paying 9 bucks a gallon for any damn vehicle so paying 3-3.5 for a gallon is a joke... I just wish we had a little bigger gas tank so I wouldnt spend the time to gas up lol. If you do care about your MPG get a pruis :)

I hit 300 miles ONCE, I can hit 270 if I'm careful and I typically get 220-240.

It's all about keeping a steady speed on the highway, coasting as soon as you see that you'll be stopping or slowing down, and accelerating very steadily and slowly.
