I do mainly city driving but I'm definitely not light on the throttle. I can't get over 24mpg even when driving it lightly. lol

Stop and go driving makes a huge difference in mpg with this car than when you take long drives of consistent speed.

I used to take a a back road route on my way to work that averaged me as high as 39mpg one time. After I abandoned that route due to location change and got on to roads that were heavy stop and go traffic, my mpg tanked to 26-28mpg...
