Heres my low down: - What fuel economy are you getting and how are you determining fuel economy? (trip computer or manual calculations) 39mpg, my calculations: how many gallons I filled up divided by miles driven - What fuel economy are you expecting and why? at least 40 something! - What are the approximate outside air temps? 80-90 lately - How long are your trips? I drive 8 miles to work, 7 on the freeway and trying to drive like a snail now, still doesnt seem to help! How old is your 12v battery? What is the voltage reading of your 12v battery after sitting over night? I dont know really, I got my car 1 year ago Have you had your alignment checked? Any pulling or abnormal tire wear? no I just got my tires rotated and alignment checked etc. etc - How much of it is city vs. highway? Roughly what's the average speed in overall and and of each segment? Is there a lot of stop and go driving? A mix between city and freeway, I would say half and half, and I dont even drive that much! Everythings reasonably close to me. - What's the terrain like of your drives? (e.g. flat, gentle hills, steep hills, etc.) Hills in my area of Echo Park - What are your tire pressures? not sure but I just got my tires rotated and I know they checked the pressure, just the standard pressure Im sure they put in. - Is your oil overfilled? (i.e. above the full mark on the dipstick) No - Make, model, year, engine and transmission of previous car? (e.g. 08 Honda Civic Si 2.0L 4 cylinder, manual transmission) What did you actually get on the same trips/commute? (Please give us actual numbers, not EPA ratings.) ford focus 2002, 30 mpg - What region/state are you in? (if you haven't set your location) california - How are you trying to drive (e.g. trying to stay in electric only?) and how hard are you braking? trying to do the whole pulse and glide thing, doesnt seem to help - What modes are you using, if any? "normal", EV, power, eco? EV mode - Are you "warming up" the ICE (internal combustion engine) by letting it idle after powering on? no actually I never do - Are you driving using D or B mode? d - HVAC settings? Are you using the heater, AC, auto mode, etc.? If using auto, what temp is it set to? ac is on all the time on auto, i been trying to keep it in the mid 70s its been warm lately - Are you using the factory tires and wheels? If not, please indicate tire make, model and size (e.g. Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max 185/65R15). factory tires since I got the car last year - If reporting a mileage drop, did anything significant change on your car (e.g. accident, hit a curb or big pothole throwing off alignment, oil change/other maintenance/repairs, changed tires or wheels, etc.) or your commute? No not really My commute has changed now that Im closer to work, I use to drive 40 miles to and from work but now only 8miles. 7 of which are on the freeway, and Im trying to drive super slow. I only work 3-4 days a week so I dont put a lot of wear and tear right now on my car. On days off Ill drive to my moms house but shes only 12 miles away on the freeway, once again going like a snail right now. I pick up my husband at work maybe 2-3 times a week, but that too is only about 4 miles . I mean realistically it would be ideal to bus it around town but I work at night so I cant, and lots of places in LA are not that easily accesible by bus hence why you have to drive just a few miles, and its been hot so thats why we drive. I dont know if all those short trips are why Im getting such low mileage, but that seems REALLY low..or is that normal and fair? I always get my tires rotated and oil changes at Toyota dealer so theyre doing what is standard I would assume. Also, when I went to SF last month my mileage sucked then too, about 38-39, and that was going the speed limit which is higher at 70, maybe 75!! To be honest I never noticed what my mileage was before I started working so close, I didnt calculate it but I did get about 400m before my empty light went out, which I thought was ok, now its not even close. Thanks for your help!!
