4th Gen Outback Gas Mileage

I have seen discussions of gas mileage buried in other threads but nothing dedicated exclusively to real world experience.

Please post your engine, trim level, and mileage.

Looked for this on fueleconomy.gov but as of yet no postings.

Thanks

On our first two fill ups we have gotten 30.8 and 28.7 mpg. Overall has been 29.8mpg so far. Can update this as we go, but the weather is such we are always on the motorcycle.

This driving is about 95% on two lane up country mountain roads, but taking it pretty easy due to raod and traffic conditions. Did go to Sacramento and drive on the freeway for about 10 miles total.

We maintain a log of all the gas we put in the car and as I said, can report more as we go.

A side note our accumulated MPG AVG on the cars display is showing 29.3, which I was very surprised at, considering the way they car computes MPG.

2.5i CVT

Been getting mid to high twenties in Boston area city driving, mid-thirties on the highway. The car is capable of near 40 mpg in ideal highway conditions. I consider this mileage superb for this type of vehicle.

Only had one fill-up so far, but it was right at 28 MPG - about 60/40 city/highway. Can report back with more later. Oh and the electronic gauge is displaying a little less - 26.5~.

Very much mix of highway and local roads.

2 full fill-ups on my 2.5; the first I tried my best version of hypermiling with 60/40 highway city and got 31.4, the ave. mileage readout said 31.8. The second fill-up I drove like a jerk with the mileage readout turned off and I got 28.5 mpg, the readout indicated 28.9.

In about 2500 miles of highway driving I have gotten between 29-31 MPG, even during the break in period.
