  1. Fuel Economy
    Today was the first time where I saw the message "Fuel range low" instead of the miles remaining. I think I had about 44 miles remaining when that message came up. I was able to get 10.5 gallons in the tank (it's a 12.6 gallon Eco tank) so if that's true it would mean that I'd actually have...
  2. General Discussion
    Just a personal observation... As the temperature approaches or dips below freezing, my DIC seems to be extremely accurate. In fact, during my last fuel up.. it actually overestimated fuel consumption. These were large tank sample sizes as well. Explanation?

I have only ever had one other fillup that off, and that was the first tank so the dealer could have not fully filled...

    On the DIC, my combined mpg for my entire driving of 3300 miles is estimated at 33mpg. However, I downloaded and synced my cruze to the Onstar Remotelink app and there my mileage was at 37 mpg. So my question is, which one is more accurate? I have also use 100 gal gas, so I'm guessing the DIC...
  5. Fuel Economy
    I want accuracy. Since there seems to be no accurate way to fill the tank to the same level each time, I'm going by "gallons used" on the DIC. I've tried using the same pump, at the same station, after driving the same miles, set on the slowest setting, and it clicks off different. A quick...

    Now for starters, this is strictly an OPINION and I open the floor for debate so let's hear some other opinions! OK so I have a theory on why your DIC may be more accurate than you think, and maybe more accurate than hand calculations at the pump. My basis for this is, as always, margin of...
