Would be nice to a have a recipe for something close to 15...I have run 1100 miles as of today and the last tank worked out to around 11.8 mpg. Equal mix of city/highway no towing.

Some people have reported low and some high. Not sure if its driver related only or a mixture. I think they burn a little more now because of the emmision regulations and that second turbo prob isn't helping.
