    I bought my 2015 Mirage De spring of 2018. I consistently get 38 in city and 42-44 on hwy. Speed limits around here run 65/70 mph.

    Managed to pull 43mpg on the highway this past weekend, 120km/h and A/C on with two adults and one adult worth of equipment and luggage onboard.

    Not personal best, but personal worst:

    But, it's still pretty good when you consider that it was including ~10min of driving in bumper-to-bumper traffic going no faster than 3mph (sorry, clutch ), idling for about an hour for the AC (it was 90F today and I was doing some work in the car, I tried cycling the engine on and off a bit to save fuel but 30s after I shut it off it started getting warm again), and going uphill at 55mph and having to brake on my way downhill because somebody was turning at the bottom of the hill, all while full-blasting AC. Still a lot better than the Santa Fe, which'd get at best 20mpg if I tried really hard under normal conditions.

    This reminds me: if Loren sees this, out of curiosity, I'm wondering what kind of mpg you get while autocrossing? I'm willing to bet around 20mpg.


    2014 ES 5MT - 27k mi. Averaging ~40MPG because I'm an idiot.

    If it ever seems like I'm being rude at all, I'm sorry, I don't mean for it to come off that way.

    lowest, 25.23. about 10 fills in the 20's, and i'm measuring off the odo w/ stock tire dimensions. highest is 49.97. average 38.022. i'm not looking forward to tracking all this with different size tires.

    I have just updated my fuel log here and Iím impressed that I was able to reach 48 MPG which is my 2nd personal best. I was not able do that with my ex-G4 5 speed, wierdly.

    I donít need scangauge eco anymore. Hope I can surpass 48 by summertime. I want another Mirage lol

    I wish all my 3 sons were driving Mirages. It would have saved me tanker trucks of gas (and vaults full of money). That would be 4 Mirages! I don't care what trash can my wife drives around ... it's her trash, she can haul it around in whatever.

    I see. What if you convince them to drive one as for them to have more $ in their pocket for other things? Win-win scenario, donít you think?

    Unfortunately, they see Mirages as scarecrows to young females (scarejiners). And for them, jiners are much more important than the savings they would generate.

    I know they have a valid point.
