    I have a 2012 Base Kia Soul with Automatic Transmission that I bought at the end of May last year. At this point, I have just under 16,000 miles on it.

    My mileage sucks. The car is great, it feels quick and agile, there is nothing wrong with the motor or transmission or suspension. Tire pressure is right, I'm using good quality fuel, never use AC and have no modifications whatsoever. Yet on my last tank I got an abysmal 19.2mpg :eek: So, I have...
