My commute is only about 20 miles round trip so thankfully Iím not filling up more than once a week, but the actual gas mileage is not good at all.
DC traffic will definitely kill your MPG. I live 1 mile from work and I'm almost on the throttle the entire time. I get around 16mpg with that commute. Not to mention, my MPG always takes a hit every time I start up the engine.
