Hello,

My car is 70k kilometers driven 2010 Cruze 1.8 LT with automatic transmission. The combined fuel consumption should be around 7,8 l/100km, but I'm getting 10-14 l/100km depending how and where I'm driving.

The dealership found nothing and they say that the consumption is quite normal. I think it's a way too high, especially I'm trying to save fuel when driving.

Things what I've checked so far:
- Brakes are working correctly
- Air filter is new and clean
- Intake air temperature sensor has been cleaned (near the air filter housing)
- Tire pressures are ok
- Emissions are ok
- No fault codes

So what would be the next thing to check? O2-sensor? Intake air leak? Where is MAF/MAP located in 1.8 Cruze?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your reply.

Outside temperatures here in winter has been usually between -15 and +5 deg C, and I know that it affects to fuel consumption. Terrain is flat and I'm not driving with heavy foot. While driving in warm weather the fuel consumption does not drop significantly. I live in cold climate country so I know how the weather affects to fuel consumption. So the cold weather does not alone explain the high fuel consumption. In addition in here its normal that people pre-warms their cars engines before driving in winter.

But maybe you are right, the car just consumes a lot of fuel. Compared to my previous cars, Cruze consumes much more fuel than the manufacturer says. So that's why I'm disappointed and I tought there might be some sort of typical problems in Cruze which affects to fuel consumption.

Have a nice day :)
