Automatic non turbo according to fueleconomy.gov will get at least 21mpg. 19 city, 24hwy. Automatic turbo... pretty much the same... 21mpg... 18 city... 24 hwy. I have an 04 turbo automatic... and I reset the trip all the time I refuel... depending on when I get gas it definitely gets 270miles to the tank, I can push it to 300 miles on a tank but then the gas light beeps like no tomorrow. Haha. So if the car has what a 12 gallon tank? 300/12=25 mpg... so depending how you drive you can easily get 25 mpg. No jack rabbit starts aka flooring it right away at the stop light... you can easily get the 300 on a tank... but if you go above 65mph then your mpg gets crappy.

i have a 2008 turbo convertible. with a highway/city mix of about 75/25, i get right at 21 mpg on owner's manual recommended 87 octane. for everything else with this car, you can do a search for the "continual car" blog.
