Good afternoon all,

I am curious if anyone else is have MPG issues. My 2011 is "advertised" "rated" for 25 mpg on highway. I drive 90% of the time of highway to & from work and I am getting 15 to 16 at the most. Is this common for the SUV's ? Thanks for all your input

I find the only true way to check your fuel mileage is to fill up zero your trip odometer and run the fuel down to very low and then refuel and check total miles / total fuel !
Voila your fuel mileage.

No.

I have a 2013 (3.6L vs. your presumed 3.0L). I believe the 3.0L is supposed to have 1-2 mpg better mileage than the 3.6L.

I drive in the city and consistently get 18+. When I'm truly on the road, driving 200-250 mi. between stops, I get 20-22, depending on whether I've got a head wind or tail wind & I occasionally exceed 23.

My calcs are based on accumulated odometer readings & total gallons stated on the fuel receipt.

This is pretty much what I've been getting with about 80/20 suburban/highway with my AWD '14.
