Gas mileage...What's good?
Posted 06 January 2004 - 05:35 PM
I did have a remote start installed, so my car idles more now, but it dropped before the remote....puzzled.

Idling reduces mileage probably about 2mpg for me. Winter gas also reduces mileage.

How are some of you cold weather folks doing on mileage?
Posted 06 January 2004 - 07:19 PM
99 obw 2.5l auto 145,438 miles.

It was funny, too: I had my GLF for a few months then and was just getting into things. I also was very tired and didn't pay attention to how full (or rather empty) my tank was. So I almost parked in front of the house, and the car dies. I try to crank it back up, doesn't work -- what the ...?
Turned out I just ran out of gas. The trip-meter read 520+ miles. So, IF the gas tank is 15 gallons (I'm pretty sure it is), then 34+ mpg is fairly accurate. And all that with the steering wheel bouncing and kicking at anything above 50 mph and unbalanced very old wheels. I am still wondering how I managed to cover almost 1.000 miles in 2 days and not break down!

19+ mpg / mostly stop & go driving.

I've noticed it has dropped by at least 1 mpg in the last month or so, which I presume is from a change in gasoline composition for winter temperatures and the fact that you are pushing the car through denser air.

On my 97 OBW, usually between 330 and 375 miles. I almost made 400 once, someone who has the patience to drive at 55 could do it.....

I've had a couple of 400 mile tanks with my 95 Wagon (not OB). In my Honda Insight Hybrid I had a couple of 800 mile tanks, which is pretty extraordinary considering the tank is only 10.9 gallons.

over 45 tank fulls (I fill to the neck everytime) and 12245.98 US Miles and due to where I live in Australia that includes the A/C running 98% of the time and I am not a slow driver by any stretch of the imagination.
