    I've got a 2011 Cruze 1.4 turbo and I am curious if a cold air/short ram intake is worth the money for more than just an increase in the turbo sound. thanks
  2. Fuel Economy
    I am interested in purchasing a 2012 Cruze Eco with the 6sp automatic. I do not want to get the manual, because my wife can't drive a manual and she doesn't want to learn. What are the Eco Automatic owner's out there getting in the real world mileage. I know that the sticker says...
  3. Fuel Economy
    So amidst all th e threads about mpg and my hatred of my own mpg which has slightly improved since switching to 93 octane, I'm making a separate thread. here's why: I put 93 octane at HEB, car runs better, etc. yesterday I was forced to put gas at shell, I didn't fill up, only put $20 of their...

    How low can the gas mileage on these cars actually go (not on the dragstrips!)? I just hit 19.9 and I was babying it around town. In the car's defense, I had to remote start it quite a bit, dealt with heavy traffic and crawling paces. In the early goings my average speed was a whooping 12...

    Here is what happened while my wife drove home last night, Oct. 2, 2011 (see below). This was a similar situation with a 2009 Astra we owned. After the second gasline coupler leak occurred on the Astra, a GM rep (in Oshawa) told me they would not cover a broken gasline coupler again, after the...
  6. Fuel Economy
    Was about a mile from work this morning when my gas light came on. The Onstar app said my range was about forty mile on two gallons. After work today, I was going to make the drive to the dealership twenty miles away where I bought my Cruze since they still owed me a new car purchase detail...

    Hey all, I really like my new Cruze about 90% of the time. But I've noticed a strange phenomenon: If I drive for a while, then shut down and run into a store or something and then fire it up again with the ventilation fan (a/c or not, doesn't matter) I get a whiff of unburned gasoline for...

    Does the 2011 Cruze ECO standard transmission have some sort of indicator to warn you that the gas cap is off and the door to the gas cap is open? This is a Canada car.

  10. Fuel Economy
    First trip to the gas station = 43 MPG Made my first trip to the gas station yesterday and I must say I am very pleased. Ended up with 43 mpg. That was with about 50/50 highway/city driving and 87 octane 100% gas. I just came out of a Pontiac G8 GXP which was getting about 20 mpg (on premium)...

    What do you think? thanks Fink
  12. Fuel Economy
    So I've been tracking mileage with Fuelly since I bought the car, and have filled up to the first "click" each time trying to keep the fills as consistent as possible. Here's my per tank averages to date: Date Miles Gallons Price MPG Notes 4/28/11 347.0 10.022...

    Do you fill your Cruze only with Top Tier gasoline? I see it mentioned in the user's manual, and my co-worker is very devout in his use of top tier gas in his Mini. With my old VW Jetta (260,000 miles) that I just sold, I used BJs gas more often than not. Same with my wife's Subaru Legacy GT...

    9,000 miles on car. The other day I purchased gas and it took me 16 times before the gas cap would seal properly. It would click like it was sealed but when I grabbed the cap and pulled on it to see if it was threaded it was loose as a goose. My Check Engine Light (CEL) came on about a month ago...
  15. Fuel Economy
    so ive been doing some driving and trying to figure out a way to get more mpg. Simply drive in tip-tronic and switch gears 1-3 at about 3.5K-4.5K rpm. At gear 4,5 and 6 switch gears at 5K rpm. This creates less gas usage by 15%

    Is there a company making some fancy ones yet?
  17. General Discussion
    does the cruze have a locking gas cap? I don't live in a bad area and gas stealing isn't a popular crime but these days people can be ignorant just for the sake of being ignorant but can the gas be stolen out of the vehicle. and my second concern is someone being cute and putting something in...
