  1. General Discussion
    Okay, so I had been using premium gas all summer in my 2017 and getting great fuel mileage from it, but now it’s pretty cold here in Wisconsin. I mean, not consistently, but there’s days where it’s in the 30’s now and it’s only going to get worse. so my question is, what gas is best to run in...

    2019 Gen 2 owner here. Wondering if anyone else had any noticeable differences running premium in their engine. I’m not sure if it’s just my brain tricking me but I put premium in the car for the first time sense I bought it and my car seems to be running a lot smoother (other than chevy’s...

    The 2018 Cruze has the 1.4 turbo engine right? I know that the 1st gen required premium. Does the new one require it or is it just recommended?

    Items needed Psi gauge at least 20 psi 1/4” hose Air hose connector to air supply To test for boost leaks you will need a psi gauge that will test at least 20 psi and that you can read accurately. I used a “T” junction and 1/4” hose, and one of the 1/4 inch hose I slipped over the connective...
  5. Gen1 Service Issues
    I need some advice from the community. 2014 Cruze Eco 6M/T. Bought new and babied to 92k. The whole reason we bought this vehicle is for the gas mileage. I hypermiled with it and routinely got high 40's and even low 50's MPG averaged for the first few years of ownership. No problem. We were...

    1.4T ringing sound when I let off the gas. Also have a really loud belt. Not sure if it's all related

    I’m not super car savvy to start off with. I have a 2018 cruze hatchback lt and it’s been an amazing car for me! I was wondering if I should run premium gas in it, maybe once a month? Thoughts & suggestions? Thank you!

    Are the gas and diesel Cruzes the same 5x105 bolt pattern?
  11. Gen1 Powertrain
    Having used regular unleaded for the entire time I've owned the car, I recently tried premium gas for about 4 straight tank fills. I noticed an improvement in performance, but it seemed like the entire time it had premium, the engine light was on. When I switched back, it went off. Maybe I...

    I was only doing oil&filter change since I bought my car in Nov 2014, so based on the age of the car what are the recommended services ? I've asked the dealership and they (different dealerships) recommend on 30k to do the following (not sure if that too much or should be done now based on the...

    As I watch the gas prices go up here in Oklahoma where we usually have some of the lowest prices in the nation, I am so glad I have a gas saving 2017 Cruze to drive ( averaging 34 city 39 hwy using premium 91). What surprised me when looking at compact cars and smaller how the Cruze mpg beats...

    So the check engine light came on and now I do have the kick I used to accelerating, especially slow acceleration at higher gears and my gas mileage has gone up about 1L/100. The car is still very derivable but won't be able to get it looked at until Thursday. Any idea what this might be? Turbo...
  17. Fuel Economy
    My wife and I recently got a 2017 cruze LT, automatic not knowing it had auto stop. When we did the test drive, it was below 41 degrees and it never activated. After we purchased it, the weather warmed up. Anyway, now that we know about it, I was curious about how much gas it really saves in the...

    I found a gas station today, Citgo in Houghton Lake, MI and they have a wide range of grades... 87, 88, 89, 91, and 93. The price price spread really increases with each grade higher.

    Hey all, Figured I'd post it on here before I make an appointment. The past couple days I have been driving my car and have the heat on, obviously. When it is at a stop, or if it is remote started and let sit for a while, or rolling slowly, the stench of gas fills the interior. Any idea...
  20. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    As winter rolls in I'm starting to notice the smell of gasoline when I start my car up in the morning. I ordered a new purge valve solenoid, when that arrives I'll install it. Just curious if there's anywhere else I should be looking if that does not solve the issue. Sent from my SM-G950U...
