i can drive 20km at only 3.8L/100km too, but sampling 20km driving distance isn't very representative of an overall mileage, is it?It's fairly easy to reach high 50s in US mpg, definitely not impossible. I recently made a record of 3.8 l/100 km on the display driving 20 kilometres with pulse&glide style in suburban environment (speeds were 50-70 km/h, quiet traffic, full hybrid battery at the start and at the end). Display error is 0.1-0,3 litres according to fill ups and trip meter, so that would be around 4 l/100km or 59 US mpg in actual consumption.
That's best case scenario though, my last month average is 44-47 mpg..
Conspiracy theory! OK, I needed to know, so I went and read the meter using both display settings.i am having this conspiracy theory: i suspect that the dashboard MPG is displaying the imperial MPG as UK mpg as supposed to US mpg.
chroma23, you hater you!most people are doing mid 40s US MPG, including myself. no offense, but for those who are claiming that they are getting mid to high 50s, they are either:
- living in the US and misreading the dashboard display (which displays UK MPG)
- actually living in europe
Thanks! And it's only going to get worse! (or better?) I am looking at my work route changing to an almost 550 mile round trip! With more highway driving, my MPG should climb ever-so-slightly. Should be interesting!Damn Raidin, you're MPG is amazing , you drive a ton!
not being a hater, i just dont understand why my dashboard MPG display would be so off between metric to US imperial. in the end i just rely on fuelly statschroma23, you hater you!
I've been getting a regular 50-52 MPG on my daily run (75% highway at 60 mph).
Just wanna point out that I was being sarcastic, I didn't actually think you were being a hater.not being a hater, i just dont understand why my dashboard MPG display would be so off between metric to US imperial. in the end i just rely on fuelly stats
getting low 50s US MPG is definitely possible if you drive mostly highway and not going faster than 60mph and without traffic jams. i can do that too though i do alot of city driving so unless i am taking a road trip i never that that high mileage
but i am talking about achieving mid-to-high 50s or even over 60, that may be a bit superficial for a heavy car like the CT
and i would expect people south of the border to get better mileage than us canadians because you guys always have good weather all year round without the snow. though im abit surprised jtnoboru getting only 40-ish MPG in cali
