    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    I always reset my MPG and average speed at every refill. That way, I can accurately calculate the MPG and compare it to the computer, plus the average speed gives me a good measure of my city/highway mix. I can calculate my long term stats by keeping a log, if I desire. Doing it this way, I easily note the improvement with break-in, as well as the decline with winter driving, and subsequent improvement in the spring. My old BMWs had two mpg computers, so I could reset it for each trip and each tankful, as well as an instantaneous display; I really liked those features. Using this method, one will see some impressive numbers at times, like after being on the highway for 10+ miles right after a fill-up. You can also see some really bad numbers in a traffic jam, or just watching what idling does. You can teach yourself how to drive more efficiently if you desire, such as during gas crises or times of high gas prices, by watching the average mpg with each change in habits or style.

    I avg about 21 with my awd 2.0t

    I consider myself a pretty aggressive driver, and with winter warmups and such I'm not too upset.

    It's far better than my h3 was, obviously.

    It's on par with what my g8 was though, weird

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    Last weekend I got 27mpg with my 2.0 AWD. That was a combination of highway, country roads and some city. This was winter weather driving with Winter fuel. One tank was premium and my first fillup was regular. This was a 600 mile plus trip and my car has over 6,000 miles. I find this very good considering the conditions and have no doubt that my Summer mileage on the same trip will be around 30-32 MPG.

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    I'm the same, 14.5 mpg on my first tank. I have been having a little fun, but not much (I know your suppose to be good to the engine at the beginning, but you gotta give it a little heat to help it settle). Even when I reset the MPG calculator on the highway I get 21 max (cruising at 65), I'm going to give it a little while, but these numbers seem awfully low even for a engine that is not broken in yet

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    All I want is to get 20 driving the way I drive, I just drove a V6 mustang and averaged about 18 or so, so I would think this engine should at least be able to get me a few miles per gallon better with my same driving habits. But right now Even driving very conservatively I am getting like 16 mixed highways and city, and that's with very little fun driving

    That's crazy mpg for the highway. I took a trip to the beach the other day my average was getting up to 36 when on freeway. By the time I had gotten back home with beach city driving I had avg 30. I don't know what your doing on the gas pedal, but something isn't right.

    I just have to say..I don't think you are allowed to reference the beach. I'm sure you can't twice in one post. Gotta go shovel snow now.

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    On my recent road trip from Denver to Phoenix and back, I averaged 30.2 on the freeway (75mph mostly, and no cruise control), and my city average in Phoenix over a one week period was 19. Pretty satisfied with that.
    In fact, the city mpg surprised me a bit because at home I average about 16-17. Not sure if the difference was caused by the lower altitude, or the fact that everyone in Phoenix seems to drive highway speeds on the city streets! hahahaha....

    Great trip. I was worried that the seat might get uncomfortable, but it never did. LOVE my car!

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Re: ATS and MPG - What are you getting?

    I did 200 miles of 70-75 MPH freeway driving today and averaged 27.1 MPG. The ride wasn't bad. I wonder if the magnetic shocks are softening a bit. I still only have 1100 miles on the car.

    Had 2.0 AWD auto bout a month only city driving so far and 14.6 mpg. Been driving very easy not aggressive at all.
    Three family members have shown interest in an ATS but may rethink after I informed then about city mpg.
