    Talking Another road trip to iowa and back from last month in my Manual ECO

    Hey guys,Im on a paranormal team and do hunts in my free time from school. Went from outside of chicago in the burbs to Maxwell, IA to this haunted school house called Farrar. It was 330 miles each way and five and a half hours from here. This was the first trip after having the recall done as well so I was excited to see if it hurt me or not. There was also a huge head wind the whole way going 20-30 mph. Even doing 60-70 with cruise set my real time mpg was always close to 30. My tires were also at 45 instead of 50 like normal. Checked night before we left. Lots of semi traffic going and coming. Had semi's passing semi's on two lane roads got old quick. Semis wouldnt even look before switching almost got tagged a few times. I also had to play with the cruise paddle to raise or lower my speeds which I know hurts mpgs right away. I also dont know if the tank had winter gas or not and temps were in the 40-50s and 30s at night. Had full tank from a month or so before I left from not driving any where before hand. Was also doing between 60-70 going depending on speed limit and 65-80 coming back. I also had a hair under a 1/4 tank after getting there and have 100 miles left to tank as it sits now. The worst milage ive gotten to a tank in a while but still in love with the car. Few pics of the trip going and coming and second picture is coming back. Let me know your thoughts, thanks guys.Don-

    What model Cruze is this? Eco, LT, auto or manual?

    Pretty good mileage any way you look at it, and it will continue to improve until around 5,000 miles.

    Sorry, Its a eco manual. Ya definately not complaining coming from a fullsize silverado that averaged 10-12 haha. Ive slowly been seeing milage increase since new so look forward to hitting that 5,000-10,000 range.

    I don't see anything

    I don't believe in ghosts but it intrigues me if that makes any sense.
