Well here's my update. After putting on those inch wider alloys, that are 1lb heavier, my mpg is still about the same. The highest mpg I've gotten was 38 mpg going 60 mph at 2500 rpms. If you drive fast or live in an area where your forced to like me, your not going to be getting low 40s anymore. I'm constantly at 3k rpms to keep up. I got tired of aggressive buttholes in F150s tailgaiting me and flashing their lights. I imagine a lot of Mirage owners in Atlanta are averaging mid 30s combined fuel economy, like I am. Gas is $2.50 a gallon now by me too. No more twenty dollar fill ups, but hey, this might drive Mirage sales up in the next couple of years.
I let the gas pump click off twice every time I fill up, & I divide the miles driven by the gallons on the gas pump.
My 5-speed manual was between 3,000-4,000 rpm most of this trip. I never see below low 40 mpg on trips like these, & summer time mileage would be noticeable better.
I am not doing a lot of stop & go driving, but we do have hills. Tire/rim sizes, types of tire, tire psi, driving style, traffic situations, weather conditions, etc. are all factors, too!

I averaged 27mpg (hand calculated) for my last tank in the black car. Lots of -30 c weather and lots of idling killed my economy. So far on this current tank I've gone almost 200km(124mile) and the dte shows 650km(400 miles) to go.
