    I haven't hit 7.9 since the summer of '12

    Hopefully this year will be better.

    I don't know if it's a placebo effect, but I've been averaging about 7.5L/100km since I switched to Esso in April 0_o

    I get similar fuel economy with my stock 2010. I don't drive it hard. Have the RX-8 for that purpose.

    So I drive a manual 2012 mz3 GS Skyactiv, I average 7.0 litres/100kms, I use 91 octane gas and mainly do country driving (80km an hour zones) very little city. My best was 6.16 litres per 100 kms, and my worst was 8.59/100kms... all my info is kept in the gas cubby app. Been driving for about 8 months with it now!

    Why are you wasting $ on 91 octane fuel when the motor is designed for 87?

    Now that my summers are back on and shed almost 7lbs per tire, I'm back down to the low 7's/100km combo of hwy, city and traffic with my 2.0L MZR + 5MT and using 87 octane from ESSO or Shell.
