My Vibe is automatic.

I get about 35mpg in city driving @ 40mph. My city trips are never that long, which means the car does not warm up until im on the hwy. However in the city I do as much EOC as possible and I accelerate quickly to get to cruising speed.

My Hwy mileage is a consistent 40-42mpg, achieved @ 55mph with the cruise control engaged. I have seen that P&G on the hwy gets me up to the high 30's quickly, but then plateau's until I set the cruise control.

The car's original est were 22/25 I believe.
