    Hello from Central KY


    Hey guys, been stalking the site for a while, and searching for a Cruze ECO for a few months now. Long story short, was finally able to track one down at a price I could handle last week, picked it up Friday from a dealership in Bowling Green, KY.

    I commute 40 miles to work, 40 miles home daily, in addition to running 5 kids around to 3 cities in 5 different schools. After an ugly divorce, I was forced to borrow my dad's Chevy 2500 full size....NOT good. SO, after spending a few months getting my finances in order, I drove off with a 2012 ECO with 17,000 miles, and a price I could handle. My savings in gas makes my payment, I couldn't be happier!

    I already started a Fuelly.com account, am anxious to start tracking my fuel economy and smile each time I pass those gas stations I would stop at almost daily just a week ago.

    Any advice or anything I should look for in my new Cruze? Overall, I have been very impressed with the interior comforts of such an inexpensive car, I hope to get 8-10 years and upwards of 250,000-300,000 miles out of this little guy before I have to retire it.

    Welcome and congrats on your Cruze ECO. Do not expect to see your best fuel economy for 5-10 thousand miles. The Cruze requires some time to break in properly.

    Here's the sample code I use to put my fuelly badges in my signature block. I replaced the square [ brackets with { brackets. You can also find instructions and even the specific code needed on Fuelly on how to do this.
