Just got this done on Tuesday (5/12/15). My gas cunsumption has gone up. Is there anyway to have this recall undone?
Something else is going on. What other work was done? Was anything else changed?Just concerned, drove from work to home, same route, same driving style, no traffic. Normally my gas needle moves a very small amount. Today it moved from half to 1/4. This is a 25 minute drive at 60 - 65 mph.
If anything my mileage is up since the emissions recall. My 3 year average for May is 36.3MPG over 5500 Miles. Got the emissions recall done May 3rd this month so far my MPG is up!! Over 1300 miles since the emissions recall and my average so far is 38.2MPG.You are the first on the forum that indicates a change in mileage has possibly occurred.
Who is to say the dealer tech didn't leave the car idling for some time? Doesn't take long to significantly effect your overall MPG. When I took my car in my tank MPG was at 42mpg on the DIC(over about 100 miles), got it back my DIC was at 30mpg!!! I did have my transmission fluid changed at the same time though so I assume they either idled the car or drove it to get to operating temps.Sotokai, if I were you, I'd start poking my head under the hood looking for fuel leaks. I'm having a hard time beliving a car can burn that much additional gas without noticeable driveability changes. Either that or someone siphoned some gas.
