  3. How to get mileage readout.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hello All. I am new here and posted when I bought my 2017 Kia+ at the end of April. I have used the book so much that it is actually coming apart already. The book for my other car (2003 Chevy Trailblazer) has the same problem but I have been using that book for 15 years - (not 3 months)...

    Just for general info - Here are my total mileage and fuel costs for 2017. I purchased my 2016 Soul - 1.6L brand new at the end of Dec 2016. I wrote down Mileage, cost and gallons at every fill up. Every single re-fuel was at Costco, except initial from the dealer and one other time. I live...
  5. Fuel mileage correct???

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi all, I drive a 2017 and I seem to be going threw so much gas very quickly. I was wondering if it was normal. This is my first Kia. It just seems to go threw a lot. Yesterday morning I started with 139 miles in my gas tank. I drove 57 miles for the entire day and ended up with 47 miles in my...
  6. 2 Problems - Reduced Gas Mileage & Surging

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have two issues with my 2010 Soul!. 1) I took it to the dealership for new plugs, wires, etc. because it was throwing the code for it. (I can't remember exact code but it had a 3 in it.) They ended up replacing the battery as well. Since this was done, my gas mileage has been 3-5 mpg less...

  8. Soul mileage

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello all. We own a '14 Soul with the 1.2L engine/auto. Up until 30,000 miles the mileage was calculating up to 40+ miles per gallon. It seems to be a coincidence when I change the oil at 30,000 miles, the calculator won't go over 32 mpg. Has anyone seen this problem? Thanks in advance, Supermex

  11. 36 MPG - Great mileage or something odd going on?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Tracking my 2015 Soul base model (15K miles on the odometer) in Fuelly, I've been getting around 26 MPG in what I call a gentle mix of city and highway. My experience has been that Fuelly shows about 2 MPG less than the car computer. I don't drive a lot at all, maybe 10K miles per year, and I...

  16. Mileage Improved!

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hey everyone, Had a chance to fill up my tank a couple of times in a row, for a change and wanted to see how my MPG is doing, since it has been awhile since I last calculated it. At this time, I'm driving 2/3 highway; 1/3 back country roads. I use cruise control at 64 (55 speed limit) on the...
  17. What is the logic behind the UVO app's mileage tracking?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Hi everybody, So I've got a 2015 + model with the UVO package (ie, the UVO without navigation). If you look at the attached screen captures from my smartphone's UVO app, you can see that the total mileage at the top (odometer reading) is not the same as the total distance driven halfway down...
  18. Just went to 18" OEM wheels and my mileage took a hit

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Pretty surprised how much my mileage dropped (on the computer anyways) going from 16" alloys to the 2012 18" OEM wheels. I've lost almost 4 mpg but gained a cool new look!! I guess the way the wheels looks is worth it. Anyone else have this issue? I should have weighed the 16 inchers before...
  19. 2011 with 5 speed getting poor fuel mileage

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I Switched to 215/55R16 from 205/60R16 tires and my fuel mileage dropped from around 27mpg to 22mpg. Is it possible that such a small change could affect the mileage? The car does handle better than it ever did in the last 48,000 miles. I was complaining about my mileage because it was...
