Feel for you. Hopefully, you have documentation on the refusal for the shield butchering. I'm expecting push back from the service manager on them replacing the shield, but **** has frozen over before. Keep us posted.
Something else is at play. Perhaps the new transmission isn't locking up.now my mileage has gone from an average of 42.5 to 36.
Locking up? It had better not or I'll take directly back!Something else is at play. Perhaps the new transmission isn't locking up.
Torque converter lockup. It was added decades ago for a better MPG rating. Without it, you'll have slippage.Locking up? It had better not or I'll take directly back!

It was some time after I bought my Eco and had lack luster MPG that I realized that my front brakes weren't releasing. It was like I was driving with 2 feet and always had the brakes on. Very subtle but a MPG killer I will tell you!You might check to make sure your brakes are fully releasing.
I don't think so. They would have to be pretty hard up to steal gas when it's so cheap and its 20 degrees here at night.Is it possible that someone is siphoning your fuel?
That could certainly account for most of a 6mpg difference! 38mpg LT, 42mpg ECO.What RPM are you turning at 65 MPH? I wonder if the dealer put the wrong transmission in. You should be turning 2000 RPM at 65 MPH in 6th gear. Now that I know you're driving a manual the MPG difference you're describing is the difference between the ECO MT and the LT MT.
