    After winter months of sub-50 MPG - My current tank was registering over 62 MPG last night!! Best I've seen in the 10 months I've had my 2010. I love my car!

    Hi Spiderman! I've been busy, but do the occasional lurking. Glad summer's coming - and not only for the MPG! :)

    Agreed!

    Since the weather has warmed up a bit here in Southern Ontario I'm happy. My last couple of days sees me averaging (3.5L/100km) 67 US MPG or almost 81 Imp MPG :eek: I can't wait to get this thing out on the Hwy to New Brunswick this summer.

    Good job! Sounds like you got that thing figured out. What is your typical drive like?

    i'm still at around 48 mpg on the hsi. last week, i had a 400 mile round trip with OAT 65-70F and i got only around 52-53 on hsi even with a/c off. i thought highway driving should give higher mpg but.... come summer, the a/c use will reduce mpg.
