Ok I have 3 Impreza's all 3 rs's and I notice when driving both n/a's at 80 mph one wasted more gas then the other? The 2000 rs 4D at 80 mph was at 3 rpm. And the 2001 2D was at 3.5 rmp. I don't know y? Does anyone know whats going on I'm using my 2D as my DD and it's wasting to much gas. The gas goes down faster then the 4D driving the same distance. Can anyone tell me y or what can I check out to see if somethings wrong? Both car r N/A's and are stock. Both 5 speed and both are rs's can anyone. Does anyone know what to do to make it save gas like my 4D???

My coupe was around 3500RPM there too. I think it's just
the way they're geared. Short ratio's nice for getting up
to speed quick, but they really should have spread 3rd a
little and 4th a lot.

Im pretty sure this is normal.. my L (2.2) 4dr is at about 3200 at 80. These are smallish engines with not a huge amount of power output, so its what youd expect really.

I drove a small Kia while in europe (rental car) which was at around 4300 at 80, but still quiet as idle! Must have been like a <1.0L.
