Your running a Manual right?!
I'm glad someone is enjoying it...Originally posted by TCrazy@Aug 12 2004, 07:30 PM
Sorry guys, i just cant hold it in. I traded in my Mustang for this tC as some of you know. The resulting reduction in gas monies that i expend is just awesome!. I average 30.00 MPG (90 hwy/10 cty) with the A/C on all the time and a couple wide open throttle runs! I hope all of you are getting this awesome mileage out of your tC as well, and some people might even be getting more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - T
Hmm... yeah... I'll try to keep track of this tank from Shell and let you know if I find anything different. The previous tank was from Chevron. I do drive mostly in the city and about 3 times a week or so, I'm on the freeway.Originally posted by sciontc_mich@Aug 12 2004, 09:15 PM
yeah i've tried different gas brands.. and found that shell worked the best.. got the most mileage.. when i was back home.. had the parents try out shell also.. and dad got about 2 mpg more.. some will probably say theirs is the best.. but to each their own.. I just know what I see around here in michigan.. and shell is by far the most in mileage..
try some shell and see what happens.. (imasaf i think you said you just filled up with shell..) let us know..
I know what MPG means...Originally posted by Zygote55@Aug 12 2004, 10:57 PM
Imasaf, I think the problem is that you aren't calculating the gas milage accuratly... The gas guage is NOT accurate...don't go by that.
Just reset one of your trip odomitors next time you fill up...When you put gas in the car the next time after that just divide the number of miles on the trip odo. by the amount of gas you put into the car. (Miles PER Gallon = Miles / Gallons)
Could be. My dad insists that gasoline, as sold to the consumer, is essentially the same from any gas station to the next in this country.Originally posted by LoopyLady_1@Aug 13 2004, 10:48 AM
If that's true, the additives could be responsible for different burn qualities of the gas and, therefore, altered fuel efficiency....maybe?
Oh... really??? Hmm... thats interesting to know. I do live in Cali maybe thats why my gas mileage is lower than normal.Originally posted by basilisk4@Aug 13 2004, 11:40 AM
How many of you live in Cali? 'Cause you know, the higher emissions standards in Cali make your engine less efficient and thus decrease your gas mileage...
I would settle for 25MPG!!Originally posted by QSJ Ed@Aug 13 2004, 11:38 AM
I want 30! Last time I calculated I was getting about 23 with a 5 speed.
