  1. Fuel Economy
    Hi, Newbie here on this forum. I am in the market for a car. Been looking at the Gen 1 Eco, but see the EPA numbers for the Gen 2 are higher. I am looking for the best fuel economy possible as well as range per tank. Wanted to reach out to the experts here to get your feedback. I prefer a...
  2. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I was surprised and happy that I got over 60k miles out of the OEM Goodyear tires, but tire time came and I wanted some black wheels, so I went up to 17" wheels and put on some 205/55R16 Continental PureContact LS tires. I'm not sure which piece of this setup is the biggest culprit, but my fuel...
  3. Gen1 Diesel Fuel Economy
    So I've seen several threads about excellent highway economy from the diesel Cruze's but I'm wondering what most drivers who do a majority of city driving are seeing in mileage? The '27' number is a bit concerning when other TDI models don't dip that much in the city so I'm wondering if its...
  4. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I'm curious to hear other owners data about any drop in fuel economy with winter fuel. Since the Polar Vortex arrived (and left) where I live I've experienced four tanks of fuel that are consecutively terrible. From the Polar Vortex I'm sure the fuel suppliers have been blending #1 diesel into...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Is it normal to get significantly less fuel economy in the winter? I'm in northern Michigan and it's been a very cold winter thus far. In fact right now is -35F. Does this have much bearing on fuel economy? I also use 87 octane.
  6. Gen2 Powertrain
    Looks like the CVT fuel economy has made its way onto Fueleconomy.gov: 33 combined with 30 city and 38 highway, so an increase of 2 in city over the 6AT, one combined and nothing on the freeway - and only on the sedan. So it is very likely the Eco model will be making a return. Overall, it...
  7. Fuel Economy
    Hi just looking for more information about tunes for gassers. Hoping some of you who went the tuned route could share improvements to your fuel economy. What was your fuel economy before and after tune. Would like to see if it will pay for itself in the long run and if trifecta is even a...
  8. Fuel Economy
    I have a few stupid questions for you guys! Lurked the forum a bit, but still have some stupid questions. Bought a 2018 Cruze, and found in the manual that apparently I should only use 87 and higher, with no more than 15% ethanol. I have no idea what the dealer filled me up with, but I put in...
  9. Gen2 Audio & Electronics
    I leave my center information screen always on the average MPG readout and I've noticed odd behavior since new. Say, my average MPG over the last 50 miles is 31 MPG. If I"m driving on the highway with cruise set, and the instant MPG readout is reading between 38-45 MPG for example, I can...
  10. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    As the title says. I know the Gen 1s had this page which is kinda neat. Mine seems to have an "economy trend" page which is a bar graph of the last 50km with no details. I don't know if I'm just missing something. It's minor thing that would give me a game to play on my boring commute and I...
  11. Gen2 Audio & Electronics
    I have a 2018 Premier RS True North and i noticed i only have a few displays on the DIC. Speed, Trip A/B, Oil Life, Tire Pressure. Are some turned off or something for some odd reason? I feel a fully loaded car should have more of the basic ones to display as well.
  12. Fuel Economy
    I'll get straight to the details pretty much, 99.5% of my driving is highway driving, I live off a highway, my work is off a highway which is 2 hours from my house. Speed limits are 60km/h, 80km/h and 110km/h. What I've noticed is, Cruize (:P) control at 60km/h jumps between 4.9l/100km and...
  13. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hello Everyone. I have been a following member for quite a while and have found the information in this forum very helpful. I have a 2014 CTD that i purchased in September 2013. I drive mixed 80/20 highway/city. I maintain the car well and its been very reliable for me, but I have...
  14. Fuel Economy
    I have a 2011 diesel with best fuel economy of 1095km here in Australia which is about 680 miles for you guys. This is highway use. For city use it is about 900km = 590miles
  15. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I find that I'm having a hard time keeping my fuel economy above 40mpg. At least according to the DIC. Commute is 90% highway, about 20mi, and I drive like an old man. Each tank seems to be a little lower. The only thing I can figure is that it's been quite hot and I'm running the AC full...
  16. Fuel Economy
    Living in Queens, I don't often see great fuel mileage. I had the opportunity to see what my 17 LT manual RS hatch could do on an economy run. Car has 2500 miles and I have installed an AEM cold air intake and Flowmaster axleback.Topped off in Brookhaven, cleared my trip odo and set off towards...
  17. Gen1 Diesel Fuel Economy
    Hi. Mine's a 2 litre diesel auto in the euro 2010 model. I'm getting a steady 43.3mp(UK)g with the aircon off over a 2 hour commute which is mostly motorway (freeway) but has some 25 miles of local main roads in total at the ends. If I put the aircon on, I lose 2mpg. I mention that it's UK...
  18. Gen1 Diesel Fuel Economy
    Michigan bumped the speed limit to 75mph for the north part of my commute on highway 131 north from 70mph. Naturally people have adjusted their speeds accordingly to 80mph+. This gave me a chance to test fuel economy at higher speeds since the police wont pull you over until you are doing...
