Haven't seen the OP in this thread since last August but anyway...

I just looked up the '06 Forenza on the EPA's fuel economy site. Stone Axe reported getting 20-22 mpg in city driving.

EPA estimates are 19 City, 22 combined, and 27 Highway mpg. So even with A/C and frequent idling, he was doing better than EPA back in August. Of course that doesn't increase his actual mpg. He was hoping for better.

Wagons will nearly always have a reduced mpg vs sedans/coupes due to the poorer aerodynamics of the boxy wagon shape. The '06 sedan version was rated 28 mpg highway with the other ratings being the same.
Coast long and prosper.
