I just got a Legacy and it has the 2.5 AT. I was wondering what I should expect for gas mileage. And also, in about 2 weeks I'll be taking in on a trip out east (About 4000 miles round trip). I was wondering if there was any sort of checklist I should go over before I leave. And is there anything I should expect from my car on a long trip? Thanks guys!

I get about 21 on average with my 2.5L automatic around town. Driving to Madison and back I get about 25, but hopefully that will go up since I just had a lot of stuff replaced in the engine.

Madison and back? Are you from somewhere in WI? Where at? I'm in the Eau Claire/La Crosse area.

i averaged 23-25mpg in my 99 4EAT GT...

 

 

checklist before traveling:

check air filter

fuel filter need swapping?

check all fluids (washer, brake, AT, and coolant)

check tire pressures and tire tread

check windshield washer blades (need replacing?)

need an oil/oil filter change? (if not you will after the trip!!!)

 

have a safe trip!

I live in St. Louis now, but will be moving to Madison in the middle of next month. I have some friends that live in Marshfield, I think it's 2 hours south of you.
