The car is stock and still can get over 60 mpg at 50 mile avg at 65 mph in Ohio at 54 degrees and raining. Great car
agree nice car but... Ohio must have some really flat roads, NO wind, you have a very light foot with no traffic and you keep that car polished with some
really slippery aviation wax! :3tens:

Boraz, it was improving till I changed tires and the winter blend hit, but I'm back to were I left of before winter.

I can get close to that but you must be straight highway miles, mine is mostly highway with some start stop on two lane highway, last few days the wind has been very strong. I drive about 800 plus miles a week.

In my limited time in Ohio, highways are long, straight, and flat! Beat the **** out of NY highways! Great mileage man!

i get EXACT mpg winter/summer regardless of studded tires/OEM tires and winter/summer fuel.

i DO notice the mpgs/miles change as my tires wear down, i fuel at the same stations/drive same route

I've had a couple of 60 hat tricks recently. 125,000 miles and like yours still running strong. Speed changed when I stopped to take the picture.
Air up your tires you heathen! :p

I run my tires at 51psi and have never seen better than 4.2L/100km over 500km distance. Over 50km did have 3.8L/100km though but no time to take a picture.

Nova Scotia is a mountain range though

Thank you.

Yup were part of the Appalachian mountains. We have no flat highways, everything rolls like a sine wave.

Gator and I are on fuelly. Both of our cars have averaged over 49 mpg since new. My average speed since new is around 45 mph and that shows how much highway driving I do . I'd bet that gator is very close to that as well. My first 50,000 miles .

Now move over to the next DIC screen and show us the lifetime(151k mile average.) Im at 39.7 for 43k.
your trip screen shows 151,000 miles?

i used trip1 as per tank, trip2 as lifetime, but at 100,000 kms trip2 reset to zero...the last digits matches the odo( odo says 105,456...trip2 says 5456)


misread...you dont have 151,000 miles....

im 43 mpg lifetime...70% highway.

you cant compare car to car...everyones routes are different.

first yr ownership was hardly any city driving, 2nd and 3rd more city driving....(2 miles to work everyday)...am at new location for work now, so city driving will decrease.
