You know I’m a fuel economy ‘geek.’

We drove our 2015 Subaru WRX (with CVT automatic transmission) from Calgary to Edmonton a couple of days ago.

As is standard for my fuel economy testing, we filled up in Calgary and almost immediately joined the QE2 highway (minimizing city, stop-and-go driving) and drove to Edmonton, filling up the Subie almost immediately upon arriving.

Here are the results:
