I have a 2009 outback with the old solid tranny. Just bought a Tab 320 S. Drove it 80 miles from dealer on freeway and got 17mpg. Today I drove it in the mountains, curvy small roads, city and 10% freeway. 17.5. I take it easy. Gear down and keep the revs below 5000. Yea, I could use more power but I love my outback with only 50k and the best all wheel drive. backing the trailer uphill on gravel. There's a reason it has the highest resale value of ANY car.
