  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    My blend door lever finally broke exactly like others, means I'm stuck on defrost or not at all. The replacement piece is ridiculous expensive for being a tiny piece of plastic, and being I have a 3D printer I'd like to design a replacement and print it instead. If anyone has one of these pieces...
  2. Gen1 Service Issues
    The dealers in my area are now only offering a full synthetic oil with there tire rotation oil change specials. I have always run the synthetic blend they offered before. I am am little concerned with starting to run full synthetic because isn't it true once you put full synthetic in a car you...
  3. Gen1 Service Issues
    2013 Cruze LTZ - I've been having a lot of issues with my climate control system lately, so when I finally got it into the dealership this morning, the mechanic told me that it looked like some of the seal around the blend doors had broken off and was likely causing the issues I was having (no...
  4. General Discussion
    I took my 2013 Chevy Cruze to a local dealer today and was shown to have a leaky oil pan gasket, which was repaired under warranty. I forgot to tell them that I use full synthetic oil and they filled it back up with synthetic blend. Will this cause any problems and if not, how soon should I have...
  5. Fuel Economy
    Last week, I bought a 2011 Cruze ECO, and in a week have already put ~1,000 miles on it (which is why I got the ECO). I have seen lots of posts about 87 vs. 89 vs. 91/93 Octane (In Oklahoma, at least where I live, 91 is as high as it usually goes). And, to that end, have already identified the...
  6. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    My state has recently expanded ethanol tax breaks to also cover biodiesel. The tax incentives include a 25% break for fuel retailers who invest in infrastructure for production and distribution of biofuels. My local Walmart has already taken advantage by switching to B20 only. I didn't notice...
  7. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    I just want to see if I understand correct. In the winter, a station can either blend #1 with the #2 or, alternatively, use straight #2 with additives? I'm getting some pretty significant MPG differences among stations so I am thinking some blend, some just use #2 with additives. Does anyone...
  8. Gen1 Diesel Fuel Economy
    I managed my first 800+ mile tank. DIC v/s the math was within .1 MPG. I had 60 miles until empty per the DIC. I believe a 900 mile tank will be fairly easy on a long trip. I keep loving this car more every day!
  9. Fuel Economy
    Is is just me in Tennessee or has anyone else noticed that when the fuel distributors switch to the winter blend that your mpg goes down. I have been tracking my mileage "almost obsessively" since I have owned the Cruze. I notice the same thing every winter.....or is it just the turbo needs more...
  10. Gen1 Powertrain
    I just picked up a 2012 Chevy Cruze LT with 52,000 miles on it. It needs to have the oil changed and I'm a do it yourself kind of guy, always changing my own oil. I've read the manual about the Dexos1 oil requirement and I get that. My question is about using a full synthetic vs a synthetic...
  11. Fuel Economy
    I make a 500 mile road trip at least a few times a year to the east coast. Christmas time is one of those occasions. On every trip I've made since I got the Cruze I set the Cruze control on 70 and then sit back and enjoy the ride. I fill up with Shell premium before starting the trip and roughly...
  12. Fuel Economy
    I only fill up at one gas station, and it's not because it's the best fuel I can find. It's because it's on base and it's cheaper if I use my base exchange credit card to buy gas there, especially since I use premium for my tune. Usually, I get ~32mpg on the drive home from base. Today, I fill...
