Virgin, I was pointing out the flawed logic of someone telling people to get back on topic when it's the norm for the thread (you conveniently erased all evidence of that with your cleanup, but as I pointed out, it was completely normal to discuss MPG-related things such as the stopping feature unavailable in the US you were chatting about on page 2.) . . .
I have absolutely no problem whatsoever with people having a conversation which is related to a main topic. (To be honest, I have very little problem with people having conversations that are only related in passing, but I was just born flexible like that.) So your comment about stone throwing is completely inaccurate, and it's rather telling that despite your cleanup you felt the deep need to single me out.
Rather obvious that I'd respond to a direct comment, is it not? How does that serve what ostensibly "appears" to be an attempt to steer the thread back on topic? It doesn't, but apparently you couldn't leave it alone.
Sorry I have nothing new to add on the MPG front, but we haven't had to fill up since getting back from Vegas a week and a half ago. Actual MPG seems to be "more than sufficient" thus.
(P.S. you completely forgot to prune your original reply which has nothing to do with the mileage on a CX-5. Again, I don't care, I just find it telling that on topic is extremely subjective.)

I've only gassed up twice, first tank was 27.16 with a freeway/city mix and the second was 25.87 which was almost all city. My city driving is a bit on the spirited side, still adapting from an RX-8 to the CX-5. Sure beats the 15/16 mpg I was getting in the 8 ( but i do miss it).
I find it hilarious that a bunch of scrubs who bought a new car are discussing the money they are saving due to better gas mileage.
Any money you are saving from this vehicle's gas mileage compared to your last one is negated by:
1) the new car depreciation
2) the hit you took on your former car, especially if you traded it in (fess up, I bet most of you lazy 'tards did).
3) maintenance on multiple vehicles (for those who own 3+).
Also, can the senior citizens hanging around here who are buying new cars with their undeserved retirement income please leave? You are weird.
And, to anybody who financed this vehicle: diaf. Thanks for driving up prices for everybody.
Useless, pointless and irrelevant......
