I suspect these guys getting high-20s in MPG are the exception. I have 36-50mi round-trip commute, probably 75% highway (in terms of mileage). I have a bit of a lead foot, 6MT and have the car in Sport+ 24/7. I avg 22-23mpg overall.

I could probably get it up to 25mpg or so based on my road/traffic conditions but man that would be no fun. This is my DD. I wanted a fun, engaging car. Holding back on the throttle every day to save whatever that comes to ($100-200/mo?) is totally not worth it for me.

IMO if these numbers concern you, I would get a turbo 4cyl or something. Golf GTI/GLI? Maybe a little Miata?
