My habits lately driving city/suburbs/shopping routes, the indicator shows 30.7.... 30.9....32.4.... that is without any extra concentration given to the driving for savings part.(running on normal habits)style.

When the daily temps drop, I will try harder on the savings part, I do better driving alone, lessening conversations, radio on doesn't have any effects on that. Traffic does!

EPA ESTIMATE-32 City/41 Hwy when new, but EPA changed to 28 City/37 Hwy in 2008 to supposedly reflect real world situations.

ACTUAL mileage has AVERAGED low 40's in the summer & upper 30's in the winter over 89,000 miles. No real difference between city & highway driving since the car has a manual. Would likely do better on the highway with a higher cruising gear. She really starts humming at 65 MPH.

So, someone gets 30 MPG. What value is there knowing this?

It would be far more interesting for us to tell what percentage of the EPA MPG estimate that we get.

I have a Ford Ranger FX4 with 4.0L V-6, 4WD and 5-spd manual and over almost 10 years, I've averaged almost 30% (19.9 MPG) more than the EPA weighted average.

In the past my truck, before carrying two log chains, a come-a-long, a class IV receiver & ball dropped hitch, plus removed full size spare wheel then got 6 more MPG in the Suburbs zones of 30-45 MPH, even more with limited idling during Summer.

I found that my mileage is better during Winter if I change my ambient cold air Engine air intake source to the EFI, change that to a more warmer under-hood source for temps staying below 60F degrees. Electric coolant fan system would be another benefit but costly to adapt unless used parts were used (project later). I have E-fans but they are too small for the truck use at present.

My A..tranny shifts into O-Drive at near 43 MPH but not into lock-up till a min. of 47 MPH. to reduce Engine RPMs, thinking the final gearing is 3:08 ratio I'm not shure, it seems a bit high for being loaded at times.

I generally average above 36 MPG. except usage of my truck drops to 16-21 often, better during Summer for a 4X4 V/8 non diesel.
