Does anyone notice significant gains using mid grade or premium? im curious as im only getting like 13-14 mpg in city and like 16 highway.. mind you im only at about 7000 km
If you do the math on what the extra cost would be per fill-up, I doubt there would be any gains even at an extra 2 mpg.Does anyone notice significant gains using mid grade or premium? im curious as im only getting like 13-14 mpg in city and like 16 highway.. mind you im only at about 7000 km
It all depends on how much extra it is if. It's 10% you need to get 10% better mileage to break even...If you do the math on what the extra cost would be per fill-up, I doubt there would be any gains even at an extra 2 mpg.
I have not tried it because of this, instead we leave the truck at home more often then not and take the RAV4 when we can.
I've taken it on our 250 mile trip to camp in Maine and keeping at the posted speed limit I can get 19mpg, less, about 18mpg with a head wind.
The same trip in the summer had me up around 22. But my around town mileage went fro about 18 down to 13-14.
I'm not happy but it is what it is.
I think alot has to do with the temps and winter blend fuel. I have lost about 1mpg on average the last 3 tanks since it turned cold out.Im having the same problem with mine... i bought mine in October and was getting 18mpg then i took it back to my local dealership 3 weeks ago to have some things check out and they ended up flashing my computer. Idn if its been that or the cold here in indiana but the same route i was averaging 18ish im know getting 15.5 - 16. Stock tires stock everything 3.55 gears supercrew 6.5 bed
Guess I should have also stated along with my 3.31 gears and speed I drive to get the MPG I do., I have to keep it at around/under 65 mph to get near that mileage and keep tires at max pressure and I have 20k miles on it now. Basically driving really conservative.^ Why do people always post how awesome their gas mileage is when someone is having a problem with theirs? This offers no help or advice whatsover.
OP, your gas mileage is going to depend alot on your driving habits, gear ratio, tire pressure, altitude and conditions, tonneau cover or not, etc. Give it some time, mine was not getting very good gas mileage to begin with either. From what I have heard, a tuner and a custom tune will help you the most with your mileage, but I do not have one of those yet either. The turbo's on these trucks start spooling at low rpms, and the more air they add, the more fuel the computer adds to keep the air/fuel ratio in check. I have to drive like my grandmother to get good mileage with mine. The ecoboost is by far the most sensitive engine that I have seen for little things making a big difference in fuel economy and I have not mastered it yet. Good luck.
