A heads-up driver in a MT car can get 75% over EPA tank after tank in a variety of driving conditions, from driving changes only. Under ideal conditions on a regular route, he/she can average 110% over EPA.

AT drivers will do much worse - about 40% over EPA in mixed varied driving, perhaps 60% in ideal conditions.

I should know, because those are my figures with different unmodifiedcars.
