OK, it was the city rating of 21 MPG and it was achieved in mixed driving, but it’s the best I’ve gotten in ages. Combine a 2.3 mile commute, a rev-happy 2.5l engine and a 6MT with a driver that had a lead foot and the 17-19 MPG I normally get doesn’t seem so out of place.

I kinda wish I did take that trip to KC last week so I could see if I could get the fuel economy back closer to 30.
