Miles per Gallon so far?

I've got the same question but more concerned with the CVT option.

Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

Just finished a 625 mile down interstate 5 from Portland, Ore to Modesto,Ca, I started with a Full tank, stopped once for gas and finished with about a half tank. I did not check any closer than that. I have a cube with the CVT. Hope this helps. bill

Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

Just got my Pearl White KROM yesterday, doing mosty city driving with a CVT. computer says 23.5 mpg but don't let this scare you, I 'm on 1/16th of a tank probably less than a gallon. Will give a report after the first tankfull . Also a mostly highway trip to Sacaramento comming soon, will report on that too!

If I knew I was gonna last this long I would have taken better care of myself! Phil Harris

Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

Thank you both. Trip computers are generally off. Could you tell me how many miles you traveled since a fillup + how many gallons it took you to top it off?

Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

Were those Imperial gallons, or is that miles per kilometer? ;^)

If those are real MPG figures, you are a **** of a driver!

Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

I don't know who that post was directed to KC but I will answer for myself. I used 20 gals of fuel give or take a tenth or two on my 625 mile trip. I did not buy my cube because of the reported mileage and don't care much either way, I fully expect to hear a lot of different reports of mileage. And yes I am a **** of a driver, been doing it for over 70 years. bill

Re: Miles per Gallon so far?

Congratulations!. No offense was intended. I normally can beat the EPA mileage estimates myself. But most of the test drivers have been getting much worse mileage, the USA Today test only got 24 mpg in a long stretch of highway driving (albeit, in a headwind).
