    I noticed that you tend to stop fueling at an even number of litres; that is OK, but your fuel economy data may not be accurate when only one fill-up is considered. For example, if you had put in an extra 1/2 litre (about the amount in that Timmy's latte) your fuel economy would change from 7.9 to 8.1 l/100km.
    If you try to fill the tank to the same level each time (until it "clicks" off for example) and post every fill-up you will have accurate data when viewed overall.
    Only 5 members have used the Fuel Economy Log in 2019. You have the best results.
    I filled up yesterday only because I saw the gas station with the cheaper gas. Usually would never stop while gas tank still that full.

    My fuel economy log is "off" a bit because there has been a gap when I just added $10 or so dollars because I knew I would be in a cheaper gas location the next day..... so it's been a while since I filled up to the top.

    My results are also skewed because I did a 2300 km road trip in May. That represents driving to the Kootenays in BC to catsit for my daughter. Most of my driving is in and around Victoria..... and I usually have averaged 7 to 7.5 by my own calculations over the past several years.

    Generally not unhappy with my gas mileage since getting the car 5 years ago. The highway driving results have been a very happy bonus! :-)

    I can't get mine below 6 for a tank no matter what I do. And I've tried everything that doesnt involve being a hazard on the road.

    100% highway.

    Can't wait to get some tuning work done and actually push this car where it should be able to hit.

    nickels - did yours improve noticeably after you had the defective studs (was that it?) replaced?

    I commute 120kms a day and is just shy of 6.0l/100km. Mostly hwy at around 100km/h in fifth gear...with the odd time driving it like a race car! That's with 3,500 on the ODO.

    Does anyone notice the mileage get worse as the car gets on in age?

    MAYBE. That last fill-up was the worst mileage I remember. 2015 Micra SV (middle one) automatic, 38,000 kms.
    But I am hoping it is because it was such a short distance since my last fillup.

    Mileage should actually improve as the car breaks in.

    I don't think you'll see any serious drop in fuel economy after that, unless there's something wrong. That's assuming you're comparing to the same weather conditions, same driving style & patterns.

    Bigger effects on fuel consumption are: weather (winter to summer, a 10-20% change wouldn't be unusual), driving style, use of A/C or not, mods (eg. wider tires on open spoke rims will hurt MPG).

    No.

    80/100 can get me 6.0. Limits (90/110) has me at 6.4.

    If I hit a drivethrough or play on an onramp at all, 6.6ish


    And I pick my route based solely on hypermiling opportunities. Solely.

    40l normally returns 600km.
