According to the DIC, my best mpg for 50 miles is 36.4 on my 2013 Turbo. The average since I got the car is 21, which I understand considering most of my miles is in local traffic. But I wonder how I got the 36.4. The display doesn't tell you when it happened, so I don't know at what speed I got that. I remember the trip it happened on, but not which stretch of road.

What is your best 50 miles?

2012 2.4 NA, 46.2 MPG at about 44-45 MPH, this is the slowest speed I could get 6th gear to engage.

I have never seen this setting on my DIC in my 2013 GS

Unless the GS is different, you press the Menu button until you get to ECO and that gives you the best 50 mile. To get the other ranges, press the button on the end to bring up the menu. Use the up/down arrow to select the range (25, 50, 400 miles) and press the button again. I got 38.9 mpg for 25 miles, 36.4 mpg for 50, and 30.7 for 400.

My 2011 Regal doesn't have any of these cool toys, I'm afraid. The best I've seen on the open road was last May, to and from Amarillo, TX. Running the A/C and cruising at 65-70, I generally saw about 29.7.

Had a real average of 28.6 driving from Connecticut to Atlanta when I bought the car. DIC showed 28.8 over the trip. I was surprised it was that close. (2014 GS, AWD, 19" wheels)

This was on a trip back from Fort Myers last Wednesday driving to St Pete. I averaged 65 MPH and that was on a tank of Shell 89 octane. I normally average 33mpg since I'm driving 120 miles round trip commute on highway to and from work. That's the only reason I'm running 89 octane, because it's all highway commuting right now. I've I move back it'll be 93 only. uploadfromtaptalk1426899978565.jpg
Edit: oh yeah, 2014 turbo 2WD 18" wheels 35psi.

I don't have that readout on my '12 GS... but the best mpg I've ever gotten was 35mpg average on a 100mi stretch, but that was across pretty much flat ground only doing around 70mph. My average for the last two tanks of gas has been 22.3-22.8 and after doing the math I was surprised to find that it was pretty much spot on, the last tank of gas I actually got around 23.
