I'm averaging a consistant 25mpg in my 4wd, and can easily achieve 28 if I'm consciously watching my acceleration techniques.

(And I live in an area full of hills.)

Is this the MPG you were getting during the break in period. I'm only at 50% oil life for the original oil and right now I'm getting about 19MPG which really sucks.

I think I'm at 4k miles now, and those have been my numbers pretty constantly.

Of course, I am relying on the data provided by the carputer, but I don't have any reason to believe that it would flat out misrepresent MPG.

Has anyone else other than me been getting crappy MPG. I'm really starting to think that this car is a gas guzzler.

I was getting about 24 before my first oil change (which was at 9500 miles), and now I'm getting about 25. I took a trip to DC a few weeks ago, and was getting about 28 for the duration of the trip.

I haven't used the computer yet. Does it automatically reset itself after a fillup, or do you have to do it manually? (OK, OK, I know..."read the manual...:))

There are two MPG calculations, one for each trip-meter. The MPG resets for each when you reset each of the trip-meters (A and B). I use Trip A for MPG between fill-ups, and Trip B for MPG between oil changes.

just fill up the tank. EXL 4WD. 75% local in NJ and 25 % highway. Get stuck in traffic in NYC for around half an hour. My MPG is around 20mpG. Hope I will get better after the winter.

I'm getting just shy of 29 MPG on road trips in the range on 200-300 miles (vary speed 60-80 and cruise control for ~60% of the way). The NAV computer shows right around 23 average overall (4 k miles so far).

I get about 20 to 22 mpg in mixed highway and city driving. However, I do put my foot down pretty hard.

Just got back from soutwest Virgina, 250 miles each way, Highway at 70mph +, 30.4mpg per the display. Have not put the pen to the paper however. Got around fine in the snow/ice, really enjoy the vehicle.

I am getting about 480 KM's per Tank! That's not very good..My 2006 Pontiac Torrent actually got better mileage. I find that if I put in Mid-Grade Fuel 89 I get better mileage and pick up obviously. It might actually be worth the extra money to KM's. That's something I want to find out the difference in KM's per Tank between 87 Octane and 89 Octane vs COST! I will keep you all posted on that one..

Obviously? Sorry, but higher octane does not translate into better performance, horsepower, mileage, etc. Higher octane is only required for certain engines, and the Crosstour does not have such an engine.

I suppose if spending the extra money is something you are comfortable with, then do as you please, but it is a waste of money to use anything but regular unleaded in the Crosstour. The myth that higher octane fuel means better performance is a bad as the myth that you have to change the oil every 3000 miles.

Our overall average is steady at 29, and my wife mainly does "city" driving. When I take it on road trips, I see about 31-34mpg depending on the terrain. 34mpg when it's all flat, 31 when there are a ton of hills and things like that.
