    Chevy Cruze MPG : Real Life experiences

    OK so I have found my Cruze to get really really good MPG... I think even better than the EPA rating (what is EPA rating by the way?) .... I drive it a bit like a Grandma though because i'm still breaking it in.....

    What are you guys getting "real life" MPG on your Cruze? Also state manual or auto transmission

    I'm Auto

    if it is like most new chevys it will take to about 3K to 5K miles before you start getting the max MPG.

    Any particular reason why it takes 3k to 5k miles before max MPG is achieved? Is it because the engine is still in its break-in period?

    Suspect he is referring to engine break in but I still think you should be getting good gas mileage right off the first tank.

    Road tested a Cruze yesterday with a 1.4 turbo and got 41.1 highway mpg at 60 mph for 16.7 miles. Then drove it 8 miles of non highway roads and it dropped to 36.6 mpg. I was not doing any heavy acceleration but I wasn't hypermiling either.

    Just picked up my Cruze so have yet to go through even the first tank of gas. Will report back once I get through it and a few more tanks and see what kind of numbers I get.

    That's really good mileage. The Cruze ECO is supposed to get 40 mpg and you drove the turbo and was able to get those mileage. Were you doing any spirited driving or just regular driving?

    the one i test drove was a turbo also i drove it for 10 miles or so at 55 mph it was getting 42 miles per gal it was like 70 degrees no wind either so i can see this car beating whaat the window sticker says heck i had an 06 cobalt if i drove it 55 -60 would get 32 37 mpg i aslo noted winter blend gas would cut the mileage down by several mpgs too as would cold weather . it will be interesting to see how the cruze will do

    I agree most Chevy's, or any modern American vehicle for that matter, take about 3-5K miles to get optimum mileage. I'm at 1100 on my Cruze and I'm seeing 37 hwy and 33-35 average. Not bad. My Cobalt started in the 20s and slowly climbed. I think 40 hwy is very possible with the Cruze (1.4 turbo by the way).
