i bought my 03 in dec. after i broke 5K, i have been getting more and more miles out of each tank. went from like 26mpg ave to about 31mpg ave. i think this is suppose to happen once cars are beoken in. just curious if anyone has experienced this.

it's because the engine out of the factory isn't "broken in" there are lil friction points an dstuf in the pistons etc that need to be smoothed, thats why your first few oil changes are especially thick and gritty, because of the grains and stuff from the pistons wearing into a smooth groove... my 03 has also been performing smoother and getting more mpg... did my 2nd oil change last weekend... :)
