I'm sure someone has. Heck, there are guys who have gotten that in their LLT.

Cruising on the interstate...easy.

Check it out here. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=212244

That is cruising at 70. I average about 24 right now due to the interstate construction re-route through the city.

My mileage went up about 6-7 mpg's after around 1500 miles, not just spontaneously but gradually. It was enough that I could tell. I bought mine with 5 miles on it.

To get 30, like awfarley alludes to, you have to get to speed and reset your Average MPGs. Otherwise, no way in hell.

Average 31-33 on the highway, 16-18 in the city. But my overall average always hovers around 23.

My LLT is stuck right at 17.3-17.4 mpg. Avg speed i think is 32mph.
6 miles to work , with >1/2 commute time sitting at lights/traffic does not make for good average. She definitely doesn't get to run much.
I think on highway trips @ 78-80, i may get 24mpg avg.
Not great.
Better than my Avalanche on gas though.

I get 30+ on mine. Thats checked by hand and the cars computer. I reset the car at the gas station before I drive off and don't I touch it again untill the next fill up. But thats only during the warmer weather. In winter it's only 27-28.

But the car is still capable of producing better than EPA figures, no matter the method. To a hobby driver (not saying you are) that might not mean much, but for someone like me who drives at those speeds 90% of the time, everyday, it means a lot.

Sure when I get off the interstate and drive a little more "spirited" my mileage plummets, but I still have the satisfaction of knowing I get great mileage otherwise. That means a lot to me, especially coming out of a early model Tacoma getting nowhere near that.

Just reset your trip 1 in your car and the next time you run your car the app should update with your new trip 1 for gas mileage. haven't done it myself but I would assume it would work.

To average 33 mpg on the hwy you have to drive in the 65-68 mph range or below.
People who claim over 30 mpg like to leave that part out.

Driving from NC to NJ up 95 I average about 34 MPG in mine. Then again my overall average is only about 22.5-23. I like to have fun when it's not long trips that I need to save that gas on.
