I commute 80 miles every day to and from work up and down the Cajon Pass which at it's highest point is about 4,100 feet. I live at 3,000 feet and my job is probably at 100-200 feet above sea-level, just to give some indication of what the daily drive consists of, in addition to the around town driving in traffic that is inevitable.
and Chevrolet claims 22 and 31 MPG.
My car is like new and I can not get more than 18 out of it.
I have no mechanical problems and the car only has 8k miles on it. I have even tried driving like granny.
Do you have any ideas? The Chev silverado truck claims 17
and 20 MPG and I want to buy one but I am not sure I can believe the MPG claim. I had a 95 ford T Bird with a V8
and did get 18 and 21 MPG.
Also, I have a record mpg that I achieved at an average of 58mph in wisconsin for 60miles! Take a LQQK !
That computer shown was calibrated with GPS, AND then calibrated 6 times tank to tank for the most accurate fuel readout possible:
39mpg! hell ya.
Another way I get better fuel mileage is I completely replaced my auto trannys fluid with synthetic! I tested synthetic engine oil in my Monte, the fuel mileage went down. Back to dino I went. My alignment was also off at 30,000 miles, but it wasnt pulling. I probably got 2mpg just from fixing that.
