One Man's real world MPG

It was suggested that I keep a log of my Elantra Coupe's MPG here for all to see. I have the SE A/T and it's NOT the PZEV. The EPA suggests 28 city / 39 highway, so we shall see how it goes. On a recent trip, I did hit that magical 39, so it is possible!

About my commute:

Monday = 11 city miles
Tuesday = 80 highway miles + 10 city miles
Wednesday = 11 city miles
Thursday = 11 city miles
Friday = 5 city miles
Saturday = 5 city miles
Sunday = 80 highway miles + 10 city miles

(Bonus points to anyone who guesses correctly why the schedule changes! Ha.)

So, my driving breaks down to ~70% highway, ~30% city. I will be tracking my mileage using an app on my iPhone called Road Trip Lite. It offeres MPG and Mileage tracking. I would like to get the full version which will also the ability to let me keep track of my maintenance history and expenses, but $4.99 for an app? Yikes. Anyway, I will continue to update this after every fill up.

NOTES: I will be filling up at the same gas station each time, just to get rid of 1 variable. I also drive w/ ECO on, and I cruise at 71-72 on the highway. If there are any other questions or if I missed anything, let me know!

Not 40mpg but still good. So far 30+ seems to be what you are getting. I'm guessing if I drive like I stole it it'll probably be high 20's

Update!

I pushed Blanca today. I went on a journey and wanted to see how far I could go and if the mileage was accurate.

Short answer, no. I drove 78 miles but my ODO says I drove 74. Also, my mileage was displaying this (after resetting after my last fill)

But I actually got about 30.4 with about 60% highway and 40% city. This was with Eco on.

Overall, I'm so happy with my Elantra and 30 dollar fill ups! I started driving with Eco off for the first time tonight (and will do a couple fill ups with it off) and BOY. I did NOT feel like I was driving through mud anymore!

Just for good measure:
