With a mix of highway and city driving, I got about 26 according to the computer. However, i wanted to double check the accuracy, so the next time i filled up, i took the miles driven / number of gallons I filled, and it really came out to about 22. I'm going to do this a few more times, but i think the computer is being very generous.
First trip driving my new Limited AWD back from Kentucky where I picked it up, to home in Marietta, GA, I got 26.4 MPG. Lots of mountains on the trip, so I was pretty happy. Next to see how it likes Atlanta traffic
We drove 280 miles from the dealership in southern CA to central CA in our new Limited FWD, comfort mode and got 30 mpg. Calculated by miles driven divided by number of gallons to fill the tank.
Funny thing happened at the gas station, I didn't know how to open the fuel access door looking for a button to push or lever to pull until I googled it?
Hey, I have a SEL AWD with 4,500 miles and just came back from skiing. In the car 3 guys and luggage, on the roof a Yakima Skybox18. Averaged 25.1 MPG per the dash computer. This is noticeably better than our first trip up north which averaged <23 mpg. Yes, mostly highway but included 40% of state highway travel through mountains (Mass to N.H.)
Is anyone getting horrible gas mileage? Last 5 fill ups I’m avg 16mpg. No check engine light so dealer said they can’t do anything. Kind of BS considering the sticker says 19 to 24. Not even close to sticker. Only time I’ve gotten sticker was on first tank brand new. Ever since it’s been crap
3 things affect gas mileage as much as card design.
1. Driving habits. My wife pulses the accelerator, I hold a steady foot. I get 4 to5 mpg better than she does
2. Type of driving. Mostly highway at or 5 miles over the speed limit will yield much better mileage than 70 to 80. All cars have a sweet spot. Ours is 65. Any higher gas mileage stinks.
3. Mostly flat, or hilly? A lot of short trips (less than 5 miles) or longer periods of driving after the car has warmed up?
