Because I've never seen a Cobalt get that. Ever.

You started with a full tank when you started driving? Then divided the entire mileage since you refilled the tank by how many gallons were used when you filled it all the way again?

I'm not saying your lying, I'm just kind of in shock that a Cobalt can get that good of mileage - my best is 33, so...yeah...

I only calculate mine, I don't trust the DIC at all for that.

33 was back when I was stock, revving up to only 2k, and had some freeway driving (only like 5-10 min at most)

Not surprising. Cruise control is horrible for mpg.

DIC says I get 42mpg cruising at 55-60mph, I haven't tried calculating manually though. The Cobalt hasn't been on a big trip yet
