Hey, neighbor!

Until a few months ago I was quite successful with mine (it's a turbo, rated 17/23(19)). In warmer months I could count on 32 and 26-8 in the winter. The engine is quite unhappy with me nowadays, I think it's a fuel problem. My lifetime average (since May 2011) recently dropped below 30 mpg. I've had two tanks over 34 mpg (one of 538 miles and another of 518) and last summer I had a string of I think 10 tanks in a row over 500 miles.

Do you have an SG or UG? That's the most important hardware mod. The Subaru mpg display is really accurate, but you need more than one number to get a better picture. You can probably go higher on the tire pressures. At tire time, get LRRs, and 215/50/17 fits mine just fine, getting 1.034% farther with every revolution.
