Yup, gotta let the car break in properly and then put some miles on to get the gas mileage higher. Im glad your not the only one who has never seen the gas light. Im to afraid to go under a 1/4 tank and have the junk on the bottom mixed in.davemeister said:There's a light?
I never let my tank get below 1/4 full.
If the car's not broken in, or just barely broken in, mileage will be way worse. My WRX didn't break 200 miles on its first tank of gas, even doing the "proper" break-in, got about 19 MPH mixed city/highway for the first 4K miles or so, I doubt my STI did much better if not worse, but that was partly because of the crappy soft-sidwalled all seasons I had to put on it right after I bought it, for winter.
