Short trips are definitely a mileage killer. Christmas day, total of three miles--1.5 miles each way to my sister's house. Mileage for the day 14.1mpg.

Stop lights and stop signs drag it down really quick.

Due to the fact that many Outback owners, especially those that frequent these forums, have a lift kit, cargo box, heavy aftermarket wheels and all terrain tires, the fuel mileage of our Subarus are going to vary widely. The conditions in which we drive our Subarus also vary a lot. Many drive in snowy mountainous areas like Colorado or British Columbia, some on unpaved forest roads. In order to compare mileage we would really need to know all accessories and tires that are on our vehicles and the regions/conditions in which we drive. Subaru's are probably the vehicle that gets the most varied use from Seniors doing grocery shopping to your hippies in their 20's going camping in the switchback with a lift kit and rooftop tent. In light of the above I don't pay attention to my gas mileage cause it will drive me bonkers.

well now that warmer times are here my combine mileage is reaching into the upper 24s on the 3.6R. that puts it squarely within 4 mpg of my 14 Legacy 2.5i that gets 28 on the same route...I would call that a win in my book

10 3.6R 146K
14 2.5i 73K

Just completed a 1000+ mile road trip in Montana. My 2020 Outback Limited was loaded with camping gear, food and other essentials. A Yakima Skybox was mounted on the roof. Roads included plenty of hills, cross and head winds, grasshoppers smashed on the front and some gravel roads. Temperatures reached into the mid 90s so the AC was getting a workout. Actual calculated mileage was 29.7 mpg. My display showed 30.4.

Yep 49 mpg, but UK gallon is approx 20% bigger than USA gallon, so I guess that in USA mpg this equates to around 39 mpg. Car lightly loaded, me the missus, the dog and weekend luggag.
Okay that number is way more probable, which inturn means more believable lol

Even 39 is about the highest I remember seeing, by a substantial margin.
