I reset mine perodically just to see what I am doing at that point in time. In general, after driving a mix of conditions it settles back to 24.6. I may have a heavier foot than others. When on the freeway at 55 I have seen 29 as an average, but I have a problem keeping either the MPG or the speedometer at the appropriate place.GradSoulStice said:Question for the owners, what is your mileage on the DIC up to? When I got mine it was 16 and has slowly worked up to 20.4. Please add you mpg and driving habits.
If the DIC is similar to the one I have on my Intrepid then it will have an Average MPG reading, which is what I assume they are looking at. This reading will take into consideration the times the car is sitting idle, and begging to be driven.kingarthur said:Isn't that MPG reading an instantaneous one? If so, remember, while idling
you get zilch MPG.
Yes, I did that today, I am burning 93 Octane. First tank that the dealer put in was 87 octane and it came in about 24 MPG. On my firsat tank of 93 octane I came in a little over 26. I now have just about 500 miles on the Sol. Filled up today 26 bucks for about 3/4 tank. 8 Gal.PAO said:has anyone done the manual MPG calculation..and compared to what the DIC is showing.....I find that my 04 Chevy DIC MPG is normally 1.5-2.0 MPG higher than my actual MPG Im getting doing the old manual calculation...fill up..top off...divide number miles driven...etc
:agree:Ex-Miata Man said:I have over 2400 miles on my car and have been getting averages of 25-26 with a mix of city and highway driving. That's better than my wife's Alero and my 2000 Miata. I'm not complaining at all. I run nothing but 93 octane.
90 @6500 - what gear where you in? CID says autolights offMarco said:I'm getting 5-7 mpg. Maybe I should try the highways for a change :lol:
Marco said:I don't know, Like I said, I gotta get out on the highway. People drive too damn slow in school zones! :lol:
But seriously, 116. I think it will do about 125. I forgot to read that part in some of these reviews.
