from AWD to front wheel drive: gas mileage
Posted 10 April 2006 - 12:11 PM
I am new to the board and have a question. Please let me know if the question is in the wrong spot.
All automatic Subarus have a fuse under the hood so you can take the car out of all wheel drive and put them into just front wheel drive. This is added (as far as i can tell) to allow the car to be safely towed -- which is why standard transmission vehicles don't have it.
I want to know if it is safe to put my impreza in 2 wheel drive during the summer months to save on gas mileage, and if it is safe, i want to know how much it might save as far as gas mileage goes.
any input is much appreciated.

there's a button you'll notice with a drop down menu it says "search" on it. if you want more information this has been asked many times so there's a good amount of discussion about it.
as a general question this applies to both newer and older generation but your car is an impreza, this would be considered a "new" generation and impreza specific stuff is in that forum.
