Hope your taking it easy for the first thousand miles! I think after a few tanks you'll get your official number, thats after the engine fully breaks in.

I just filled up today for the 1st tank. The computer said 38.5/mpg. But when I figure it went 340 miles on the odometer and it used 8 gallons, that comes out to 42.5. I did mostly hwy driving, but a lot of it is in traffic/construction like it always is in a minnesota summer. Not too bad, I'll be happy if it stays around there.

So if that was highway driving but a highway that is full of traffic and construction, that is really good. Just imagine if it all was smooth sailing! 50MPG? hmmm

I HIGHLY doubt anyone can get 50MPG's, low 40's at the highest.
EPA rates it @ 38 highway.

I've filled up 3 times so far, 38.5 on the first, 42.5 on the second, and 40.7 on the 3rd. Not to bad, I'm happy with that.

Salsa seems to be a popular color for the Spark, I spotted 2 of them today within an hour!

I got 41.1 on my last tank and 36.7 on the tank prior to. It seems to be getting better each time. It probably won't improve much over 41.1 I suspect but I'll keep you posted.
