Has anyone gotten bad gas mileage when they first got their car. I know alot of my driving has been city, but the first 100 miles that I put on my car used 1/2 a tank. Is this normal? Thanks in advance.
P.S., forgot to mention that i haven't been beating on it, been taking it easy on the gas.

When I first got my G6 last June I had brutal fuel economy, it was 18 L per 100 km (metric system..I'm up in Canada eh) and it came down to 14.7L/100km for a while, until about 1800 or 2000 km....ever since then it has gotten better and better, since it has fully broken in now. I only put premium in it now, and that further increases the fuel economy (I get better than what the sticker says I should be).
I have 10,500 miles now on my '06 GTP coupe w/ A4 and I'm getting 25 mpg avg. I can get as much as 28-29 on my drive into work ( 82 miles one way , all turnpike, mostly flat ground, 70 mph ) using mainly Shell and BP 87 oct. I guess for how much fun this car is, it's acceptable to me. I knew it wasn't going to be an economy king.
