Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

Go olyumabill !!!! Can't argue with experience !! I'm looking to see people getting 35 MPG after break-in using things like synthetic oil and the autopilot set to no more than 65 MPH. Shouldn't be much of a stretch to reach that figure.

Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

I did my first fillup in my KROM with the CVT today.

I went 263 miles with this tank. I averaged 39mph according to the computer with this tank.


My miles per gallon was 33.2!!! That is with manualy calculating the MPG with a calculator. I always get the receipt and write the average speed, miles driven and the MPG on it and just save the receipts. It really helps with keeping track of this.

The computer said I got 33.8 miles per gallon; so it isn't the most accurate ways of figuring the fuel useage.

Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

It had more than a half tank of gas, but I went ahead and filled up tonight. I can't stop driving this thing! It is so smooth and so much fun, I'm addicted. lol


I put in 5.049 gallons of gas
I drove 153.1 miles
which equates to 30.32 miles per gallon

This is lower than the 33.2 miles per gallon I got last time. BUT this time, the average speed was 34 miles per hour versus the 39 mile per hour average speed of the first tank of gas.

At this rate and this amount of driving, it'll be broken in, in less than two weeks. I've decided to take it on a 700 mile trip at the end of next month. I can't wait to see what my Gas Mileage is with strictly 70 mph speeds.

Gilroy to Sacramento 31.7 mpg Sacramento to Gilroy 32.8 Krom CVT between 65-70mph windy conditions.Car loaded to the gills. Not bad considering this is well before the first oil change.
Wait till this baby breaks in!

Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

That is awesome.

At the rate I've been driving mine, it should be broken in within a week. I'm going on a very long trip in around a month, I can't wait to see what the gas mileage will be. I will be sure to post it up.

Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

I'm in South Florida and it's very flat. Only hills are garbage dumps. Anyway, I have 450 miles on my new cube and the computer says I'm getting 27.5. Next week I'm heading north to Orlando, Florida Turnpike and very curious if it gets better than 35.

Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

I don't have many miles on the cube yet, but figured I'd post. I've got the Cube S with the CVT. I have not filled up yet so I have not calculated the mpg manually so I only have what the computer says I'm getting. This is the mpg with ALL city driving so far.
