Thanks!  I thought it only natural to order it in "Army Green"!  First tank is ringing up at 27.5 MPG so far, but of course I will double check the DIC against actual mathematics when I fill it up.  Also, I am happy to be "rowing my own" again!

you've got all those old Suzuki the SeX4's slaughtered......those wouldn't often hit 30 mpg.......the automatics often didn't hit 25 mpg.

 

If for some insane reason I feel i need to drive stick ever again I will for sure take one of these out for a run.

I'm on my 3rd tankful since buying my GC March 31, almost 900 miles since then. I haven't paid too close attention to the mileage and range, but I'm definitely going longer between fillups than I did w/ the old 4.0.   Gas tank is six gallons larger IIRC (like 26 gallons)..

Many reports are saying Manuals will be gone in the next 2-3 years if not sooner. You might not be able to find a manual except in an old auto.

For my friend reg:  here's my stick in all its glory.  Notice, if you will, the polished knob.  And yes, I know it skews a little to the left.
