I am trying to figure out what my mileage should be about right now and what it will be once the car finishes breaking in and the temps warm up. - Have you read This Thead Yet? - Yes - What fuel economy are you getting and how are you determining fuel economy? (trip computer or manual calculations) - 38 manual - What fuel economy are you expecting and why? - Mid 40s. Mixed driving, high highway speeds, winds(wind speed is typcially around 10 mph but jumps to 20 or more very often), cold weather, breaking in new car. - What are the approximate outside air temps? - Ranging from 60s to 20s currently - How long are your trips? - ~30 miles @ 45 mins How old is your 12v battery? What is the voltage reading of your 12v battery after sitting over night? (Method Here) - Less than a month. Have you had your alignment checked? Any pulling or abnormal tire wear? - No, no. - 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? First 5 mins is city, followed by 65 MPH highway for 10 mins, then tollway at 75 MPH for 15 mins, 65 MPH highway for 10 mins, ending with 5 mins of city driving. Very little stop and go maybe 10 mins at the most. - What's the terrain like of your drives? (e.g. flat, gentle hills, steep hills, etc.) - Terrain is mostly rolling hills. - What are your tire pressures? - 40psi all around - 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.) - 2004 PT Cruiser 2.5 automatic, we averaged around 18-22 mpg - What region/state are you in? (if you haven't set your location) - Lawrence, KS commuting to Topeka, KS - How are you trying to drive (e.g. trying to stay in electric only?) and how hard are you braking? - Brisk acceleration to get to speed since I am mostly doing highways/tollway. I do gentle braking. - What modes are you using, if any? "normal", EV, power, eco? - Normal mode except when leaving/entering my apartment/parking garage at the start and end of each trip when I try to use EV if car is warm enough. - Are you "warming up" the ICE (internal combustion engine) by letting it idle after powering on? - No I use accessory mode since I only need 2 mins to scrape off my car. - Are you driving using D or B mode? - D mode. - HVAC settings? Are you using the heater, AC, auto mode, etc.? If using auto, what temp is it set to? - I use the heater since my wife gets cold easily. I set it to about 75 for 5 mins then drop it to 68 and place on auto for the rest of the trip. - 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. - Other. - I have the upper grills block currently and I still need to cut the rest of the foam for the lower grills for the days it gets really cold.
