I've been looking around in this forum before to save some fuel.
This has resulted in me archiving a record of 5,93L/100 km (40 mpg) in a Toyota MR-S (5-speed manual 1.8L 140PS DOHC VVL mid engine RWD) under not exactly ideal conditions.
Your EPA rates it at 22 city/27 highway/24 mixed, wich is rather easy to beat.
I hope to improve on my current record by learning a few more techniques as well as slightly modifying my car.
Sadly I can't do as much as some of you guys do or the Police and TÜV get angry...
Actually I always considered the fuel in Germany to be cheap: I lived at Kerkrade, next to the border with Herzogenrath and I almost exclusively filled up in Germany. Because the price difference with the Netherlands, used to be something like € 0,30 a litre for gasoline.

Since January this year, the German government however added a CO2 tax to the fuel of almost € 0,10 so every since tanking has gotten more expensive. But still cheaper than the Netherlands, and you can still get regular Super E5
