Curious: What's your turbo's MPG?

Just looking for a real world estimate of MPG on combined driving.

PCM says 15.7mpg total. If I drive it non-aggressively, then I can get 20+ easily on the highway.

I have to really focus on pressing gently to get below 17 even with a healthy dose of Highway mixed in. 15-16 is realistic. Thank heavens for the generous sized tank.

16.9 mpg average over 31,000 miles

Highway: 24 mpg

City: 15.5 mpg

For me, 85% city over the total miles

Ceramics are perfect.
Was told they have soooo much life left, whatever that means.

That is quite incredible considering 85% is city. Are there not a lot of stop and go traffic there? Or is it possibly due to there being less air higher up?

Are you referring to the PCCB or aftermarket ceramic brake pads? Don't the ceramic rotors last like 200k miles? Even with PCCB (if you have them), how often do you have to replace the pads?

1st question: higher up in altitude is less air, less air, less efficient. Same scenario im running now, in ft laud, I'd get a bit better mpg. So many stop lights, plenty of stop and go. Never use auto start/stop button.

2nd question: I was told my pccb's should last twice as long as regular brakes and cost twice as much when I have to replace. Was also told they should last life of the car. Don't know from experience just what I've been told, we'll see which is the right answer.

I do have the PCCBs and was just wondering about how long the pads last...

I got 22.6 on the CS this past weekend on the trip from Long Island to DC and back. I was impressed. My ride from SC to Long Island last May in the M3 yielded at best 19.
