29-30 in a 3s manual and mostly highway driving.
#3 of 961 Wellllll ... so far ...

After 2,300 miles in my 2005 3s manual hatchback ...
So far I've only used the car to commute to and from work between downtown and the 'burbs, with about a 50/50 mix of city and highway driving. But I must admit I frequently succumb to zoom-zoomitis, especially pulling away from toll plazas. That said ...
I'm looking forward to a long road trip in the mountains in the last week of June, so I can (a) gauge my mileage in an all-highway setting, and (b) push this baby through the twisties!!! (There's not one mile of Interstate highway on my 400-mile itinerary, AR AR AR!!!)

My last few tanks have been just over 19 MPG - mostly city driving.
My high is 29 MPG on a 100% highway trip.
A few tanks last summer I was only getting 16 MPG - this was right after I got my CEL problem fixed - something they did lowered my MPG.

With a 1 year old 5-speed, I just eeked out 35 mpg on a trip from Minneapolis to Chicago. Given normal mostly highway driving in the great white north, I get 30 or so to the gallon.

2200 miles on a '05 SP23 hatch (manual)...about 25mpg on 50/50 city & highway mix.
#10 of 961 Mine must be breaking in now ...

I've now got 2,700 miles on my 2-month-old 2005 Mazda3s hatch (5-speed) and got 28 mpg on my last tank. Again, a commuter's mix of highway and city driving. Big highway trip is only two weeks away ... more to come!
