Just approaching 50K on my 2010 2.5/CVT Outback and consistently get 34+ MPG on freeways doing 72-74 on Michelins.
I have a 2013 2.5i Outback Premium purchased nearly two years ago. Has 25.4K on it and it runs well. Recently took a trip to Florida and averaged about 28 MPG. Best fuel economy was 30.1 M PG on on leg using 90 octane 100% gasoline. (no ethanol). CVT works well but the driving technique requires a light right foot to get it to respond the way you want it to. The paddle shifters are helpful under certain conditions. Got rid of the OEM Continentals. Running Pirelli P7 Cinturato tires. Car rides more quietly and more smoothly. Handles much better too.
Still miss the torque from my Jeep Liberty CRD. The Outback could use another forty lb-ft of torque.
