we have one with the 6-speed manual and ours started out with 36.9 and has slowly crept up to 42 mpg. Every one I have talked to says they will continue to get better after the engine "breaks in." We just had our 10,000 mi service done and it had just dropped before the service. now it seems to be back up a bit.
