240 Miles to full tank?

Hey guys just curious what your getting on your lude, I just got 240 miles... and still had about a gal left when i filled up. So i'd say i'm getting roughly 20-22 mpg. Post your mpg so I have an idea. Thanks.

Dude, I work in IT I know how to use google...I wasn't looking for a BY THE BOOKS MPG of what it's SUPPOSED to be...I'm asking real people what REAL gas mileage they are getting. Thanks for the reply Chillz!

Vague question?? How is this vague? I asked is 240 miles to a full tank normal. That seems to the point enough... I'm willing to bet at least 75% of the people on this site have the typical I/E/H. All of which hardly affect fuel consumption. So yes I'd rather ask people here considering I just went through my first tank of gas with this car rather then checking a website for what the car is supposed to get straight from the factory with no mods.

Whoa man chill out....I'm not fighting. I did search, and I saw alot of garbage throughout the thread. I just wanted a quick answer yes or no...and that's what I got from Chillz...if only there were more people like him on forums and less like the other guy. Why would you bash somebody asking a question? Even if there was 3 other threads about it...I don't think the title of the other threads was is 240 miles to a tank normal... No fighting from me I promise I'm here to help people and have people help me. Not to fight.
