what gas mileage do you get in your cobalt?

on my 2005 cobalt LS I have gotten up to 41.2 mpg driving at exactly 60 mph! I have been pleasantly surprised by how good it is on gas....

30-32 overall with mixed driving and an automatic transmission. I reset the DIC at highway speed once and got 40, but as soon as I got to town (and traffic lights) it dropped back to the low 30's.

My Cobalt is averaging 26-27, mixed driving (mostly around town). I'm happy with it.
