353819435194What's it get when you do highway-only trips?

35LOL, I live near downtown Chicago...I don't know what a "highway-only" trip is. Unless you count sitting on the expressway for 45min averaging 5mph.

Once I take a highway trip, I'll post my results

297It supposedly is based on Lancer platform. But it must be heavy... Not too thrilled about mpg. Gotta move closer to work or find work closer to me.

49629749655496I think driving in 4WD auto there is not any power to the rear wheels unless wheel slippage is occurring.This is not correct. In 4WD Auto mode, up to 40% of the torque goes to the rear. On dry pavement, up to 15% goes to the rear, REGARDLESS of slippage. Under certain circumstances, like hard acceleration, more torque is sent to the rear.

4WD Lock sends 50% more torque to the rear compared to 4WD Auto, which means up to 60% could be sent to the rear.

2WD is plain FWD.

See link below which explains exactly, by Mitsubishi, how the 4WD in the 2007 Outlander works.

194The 4WD versions have a smaller tank than the 2WD, so total mileage out of a tank gets a little tricky to compare.

Interesting that the fuel warning starts blinking faster as you get closer to empty.

496The 4WD versions have a smaller tank than the 2WD, so total mileage out of a tank gets a little tricky to compare.You compare MPG which does not depend on the tank size.

194496The way to calculate the "Real World" MPG would be to divide the miles driven over the numbers of gallons used. You fill up the tank, reset the trip computer and drive. At the next fill up, check how many miles you drove. Very simple.

In your case, you drove 300 miles on 14.8 gallons so you got 20.27 MPG.

580My observation is that the average mileage displayed by the computer is per trip, but I will have to check the manual.That's per "session". When you turn on your car for your first trip of the day, it will do the math for that "session" of use. When you turn off the ignition, it will remember those mileage math for that session and hold it for 4 hours in its computer since the vehicle was last turned off. After 4 hours (or more) have lapsed, and you start using the vehicle again, it will count that as a new session and redo all mileage math.

496So far I'm happy with the mileage - low 12' L/100km and it's still new and cold weather. I'm sure it will improve within a year or so.

12Thank you for the link on the all wheel drive system.

I went thru the manual front to back and front again and I was very disappointed with the explanation of the system.

I looked on Mitsu site but I must have missed this one.

Thanks again.

910The little mpg bar graph thingy kind of encourages me to drive with a light foot to see how high of mileage I can get.

The Mercury Villager we traded for the Outlander got 17-18 Mpg so if we can beat that by 5 MPG or so I'll be happy.

23512This tank possibly innacurate due dealer filled.

To first fill 11.30 L/100 kms OR 25 mpg Imperial OR 20.81 mpg US. About 50 per cent hwy 50 per cent urban.

2nd tank

8.48 L/100kms OR 33.31 mpg Imperial OR 27.737 mpg US.

95 per cent Hwy 5 per cent other.

The lowest I was showing per the computer average was 8L/100kms OR 35.31 mpg Imperial OR 29.40 mpg US.

All this with a light foot. highway speed 90-110 kms/hour
