    I know most of you guys and gals wont think much of this but we broke our record and finally hit 20 klm/l (about 47 MPG) on the last tank.
    The car is 11 months old today and we passed 16K KLM or 10K miles. Lifetime MPG @ 41 and still on the rise (first tanks were by far the worst).
    In the two tanks since first oil change it appears MPG not worse and possibly slightly better than before:)
    Figure the car is saving me 40% on my gas bill compared to my 1.8L Aut .Nissan and I am very satisfied. ;)

    Congrats! (Mazl Tov?...Kol HaKavod?)

    Anything above 40 MPG beats heck out of what the "average" car or light truck gets here in the US....and you're close to 50.

    Perfect Hebrew :) and with the price of gas here (about $6.5 per USG) it really is nice.
    Sure beats the averagfe 1.6l Aut compact that are most popualr hear (Mazda 3, Corolla, Hyundai I30 etc.):)

    About 75% Highway 25% city;) but no big traffic jams
    Highway speed between 60-70 MPH - mostly using CC
    Weather now has turned colder and windy (and had bigger traffic jams) - current tank will probably get 40 calculated:)
