Hey there SSR owners! I am buying a left over 04 this week and can't wait! I was wondering what kind of real world gas mileage you are seeing. I am curious because I will be doing alot of highway travel with it! Thanks in advance for any info!

Just got back a few weeks ago from a 3255 mile round trip to Texas and I averaged 20.0 miles per gallon.

Under 1000 miles on brake in

I get 22 with cruise set at 80 mph, in town the instant mpg bounces all over. The secret is to get it in high gear. I see 456 in the future.

Best I've gotten is 16.7 average with 1800 miles on the odo.
Maybe it's the startup to show everyone how the top works......

It really depends on how and where you drive. Around town here with some steep hill and short trips, and with a heavy foot 12-14, on the road driving conservatively 19-20..................Enjoy the ride....

It’s kind of like owning a Yacht, if you have to ask about fuel economy......maybe you can't afford it.

I don't really like to know my mileage, but I check once in awhile. On a trip from LA to Vegas I was averaging 21MPG+ once I was on Interstate 15 and on cruise control for over a hundred miles. I was doing 80 with air on. Yes, the top was up, you know our passengers....

I believe there's a fairly large response on this queston in another thread. You might want to try the search engine.
