With 40 votes in this poll, the average for 6MT equipped cars is 38.0 mpg(US)
And With 22 votes on the other poll, the average for CVT equipped cars is now 38.5 mpg (US).
So the difference between the transmission types has narrowed to 0.5 mpg.
Wow. That's certainly unexpected. Anecdotally I only hear of the CVT CR-Zs consistently breaking the 50mpg barrier.
Another thing is that as the engine is breaking in and we're learning how to drive it optimally, everyones mpgs will be increasing over time. But there will be a drop as mentioned for respondents during the winter months.
