Best mileage yet

Just returned from a 435 mile round-trip to the Northern California coast.

Some basics: '06 EX, four wheel drive, manual trans, about 64k on the engine, K&N short ram intake, Nokian WR SUV G2s tires (225/70-16) at 45 pounds, Mobil 1, 0w30, Chevron regular gasoline. No hiper-mileing, but I did take it easy.

To the coast: Speed of 45-55, overall elevation loss of 2800 feet, winding rolling hills, air temps of 45-55 degrees, we got 31 mpg.

Return trip: Speeds of 55-65, air temps of 40-60 degrees, winding rolling hills, an overall elevation gain of 2800 feet we got 27 mpg.

Seven gallons to get there and eight gallons coming back. Averages out at 29.

I just bought my 2008 AWD a little over a month ago. So far I am getting between 18 and 21 and that is driving rather calmly. Not really happy with this so far. Any ideas? It was a crtified used car from a dealer I know and trust. New fuel and air filters.

im such a doof. I was wondering why nomatter how I drive I was getting like 18.7 mpg avg...

then I wondered why my engine fan was on before the car was even warm.

forgot about the A/C being on if defroster is on. I drive with the setting on foot/defrost mostly seems I have to do the A/C off mod

I just started using Fuelly and it states I'm getting nearly 25 mpg (lasttwo tanks) with a mixture of city and highway driving, mostly city. It's much better than the 16 I was seeing in my old 93 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Looks like we are in the same boat, That's what I get with my 93 4runner if im lucky.

I've noticed now that i get better MPG in the summer. I thought that would have been the opposite. 23-24 winter 25-26 summer. 80% hwy.

I know they change the blend in the summertime but I'm not sure what the difference is.

Red face 16 miles per gallon or am I miscalculating?

I have an E SC 2007 all original. One tank 15.9 gallons of should last for 21/25 miles.
However I am making only 255 miles per gallon, which is about 16 miles per gallon.
Can you help me?

If you went 255 miles and put 15.9 gallons in the tank (to full) it would indeed be 16 miles per gallon. It would depend on your driving habits, how much stuff or people you carry and if most of your miles were done in the Greater Miami area. 16 mpg is probably a little on the low side even for city driving. I get around 24 mpg but 50% of my driving is on the freeway at 70 mph and half the year with the A/C on.
