AWD, had re-flash of tranny done, now have about 5300 miles. Local driving, with stops only at every 5-10 blocks and 20-35 MPH yields 13MPG. If I drive hard locally..........10MPG, but what fun that manu-shift is!
Highway at 65-75 MPH yields 21-25MPG, on basically flat normal freeways.
As a note, stop and go driving, like NYC, where there's a light on every corner and taxi's forcing you to brake (no MPG when braking!!) this sled yields only 10-12 MPG at best. It's a Boulevard Bruiser and Highway Cruiser ;D
At 5100 LBS, I'm satisfied!
