  2. Gen2 Service Issues
    So I have a 2018 1.4 LS auto and I just replaced my engine air filter last week. I bought the wix filter from orileys and ever sense I installed it, my gas mileage has went from avg around 34-38 to about 28. I only commute to work and it’s all HWY driving. My driving habits have not changed and...

    Hi Everyone! Can anyone guide me through resetting my ECM for cruze 2016 2nd Gen. I'm getting poor gas mileage and I suspect the ECM as there's no check engine.
  4. General Discussion
    Little background story, I'm 21 so I've only had 3 cars in the past including my cruze. My first car was a 2002 Nissan Maxima, as my first car (I was about 17 ) I thought I had a rocket 3.5L 255 HP, I was a student and fuel was expensive to fill up this thing. Now only being a owner of it for a...

  6. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    So I've been reading through the forum and everyone seems to like the Pirelli Cinturato p7s, the Goodyear assurance fuel max and the Continental pure contacts. I haven't had any issues with the stock tires averaging 40+mpgs for the life of the car and over 71000miles on them which I am very...

  10. Fuel Economy
    I got my 2012 Chevy Cruze 1.4L turbo in May of 2012. I was not happy with the sound and was expecting more at higher RPMs. Has anyone recently added a drop in air filter? If so, have you noticed a gain in MPG? Also, have you noticed a difference in sound coming from the engine? Furthermore, do a...
  11. Fuel Economy
    just saw this in passing and i am not totally sure about this. I have two videos. the first is short about 5 minutes ( Syntek XFT - Xtreme Fuel Treatment - YouTube ) next is a longer video 12 minutes (for gear heads and weekend warriors) that kind of explains the additive and the cons of...

  14. Fuel Economy
    I was not sure how to title this thread, but here goes. I wonder why GM uses average MPG calculated at some average speed. This is what is shown on both the trip odometer and on the instantaneous MPG portions of the cluster. I am finding that these tend to be 2-4 MPG above what I have always...
