    OK ok, I admit, I had just filled up and hit highway speeds for about 5 miles before taking this pic. Just nice to see. Wish it would stay that high on avarage. :p

    10k miles o.0

    I know you have a looooong commute but oh my! In other news...I’ve never seen even 0.1 over 34mpg. Guess I won’t ever with AWD.

    What trim is that? Ive not seen the Speed Limit sign in the upper corner ever on mine. I have GT2 so it shows on the HUD. However, would like the option to put it there also if HUD is OFF.

    That is probably a GT1.

    My Babe is a 2.0 Premium. The Speed Limit in the dash was an option somewhere that I turned on when I first bought the car. I am sorry, I cannot remember where at the moment, and she is at the dealership for her Hatch Rattle repair (2nd time) and paint chip issues, as well as scheduled service.

    Yep, I do. Just over 100 miles a day back and forth to work. It sucks, but I LOVE where I live.
    Right now I have a 2017 Niro loaner. I am hitting just over 50MPG in the Niro...

    Got 32mpg on my gt1 awd on "comfort" mode during a ride trip. At first I was like no way! But did it again on my way back home.

    Sounds great to me ...you answered a big question I had. I currently own an Optima SXL 2.0 Turbo ...rated at 31 hwy & I consistantly get over 34 highway on a trip. I always use high test gas and was hoping the Stinger GT would get better than their rated 28 mpg hwy! I'm strongly considering the a GT Stinger. I like the front grill & accents much better on the GT over the 4 cyl Premium!

    @Photogbill: What "accents"? I'm not seeing the difference, aside from the Brembo brakes getting those air shoveling "blades"; which gives a chromy insert look to the bottom grille. Is that what you are talking about?
