Thumbs up Real-world fuel economy from my brand-new 2007 Forenza Wagon

OK, so I bought just a tad over 11 gallons (11.2), marking the spot where I filled up. I set my trip odometer before leaving the gas station. I've gone 300 miles and I'm nearly back to where I filled up. Not bad for a new engine (about 450 miles on it).

I don't sit in traffic or idle too much, and my commute is mostly on country roads with traffic only on the way home. No issues/problems with the car at all. Oh, that's my new DivX capable + HDMI & Upconvert DVD player I bought for 44 bucks. Looks good on my plasma. Mostly I like it because now I can just pop in DVDs with multiple movies on them without powering up my XP workstation media PC...

Only 42-inch, got it a couple of years ago. It doesn't seem to support progressive scan mode either... But it still provides nice vibrant colors.

That's good mileage - sounds like right about what I get with my wagon, too.

That pic from the back -- it's crying out... "debadge me... I'll look good... you know you want to..."

I think the license plate holder, the paper temp plate, the "S" and the badge make 4 ... no make that 5 with the "S" on the bumper cover "Suzukis" on my rear. So it should be a bit better when I get my real plates.

From E (red line) I filled up and drove 345.5 miles before hitting the red line again then filled up putting in 13.45 gallons of gas. So that gives me 25.52 MPG.......and I don't take it easy. I have a tendance to drive like the accelerator pedal is an On/Off switch.

BTW I drive a Forenza Sedan with auto.

As long as you don't do the brake-gas-brake-gas-brake-gas, thing smason. Its always fun to be behind someone who is crusing with no one in front of them on the highway and braking constantly for no apparent reason.

If nobody is in front of me, the gas pedal is ON full until someone is in front of me.
