  1. What? No Trip computer on my 2020 Soul S?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    My previous car was a 2015 Soul +. It had a trip meter that kept an eye on MPG.It showed me how many MPG the current (and about toe be refilled) tank of gas has shown. My new Soul S doesn't have that option. I can choose to reset at refill or when the car is turned off or not to use it at all...
  2. Mode Settings

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hey! I drive for a living, so I’m just curious which “MODE” setting is best for my mpg with A LOT of stop and go traffic. I haven’t noticed a huge difference between them, except that I seem to burn more gas in Sport Mode. Lol, go figure. Own: 2016 Kia Soul + (plus) Options: Comfort, Normal...
  3. MPG Uptick

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I had to run up to Ann Arbore today. Going up 23, traffic typically runs 75-85. Fortunately, I didn't see any crazies doing their thang. When I hit the highway, my MPG usually declines once I pass the 60-65 threshold. Always, all three Souls. Today I think I started at about 29 and the computer...
  4. How to chnge MPG readout?

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Can MPG readout on my '14 be changed to run long term rather than zeroing each fill up?
  5. %25 mpg decrease after CAT converter recall

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    They did not find anything wrong with my CAT. They updated the computer and sent me on my way. Immediately my MPG went down by %25 (thats 1/4) i refilled after the recall. I brought it back a week later and they reset the computer and I had an oil and filter change done. It did not fix anything...
  6. 2011 + 2.0, o2 sensor issue with TERRIBLE MPG HELP!!

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Okay so I've searched for this problem but wasn't able to find it anywhere. My 2011 + 2.0 is getting on average 18-19 MPG and experiencing some sort of electrical issue I think. When you stand behind the car you can smell that it is for sure burning WAY to much fuel. So long story short the car...
  7. Need help my MPG is terrible

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi everyone I've had my 2010 Kia Soul + manual transmission for about 2 years now. When I got the car I never calculated the gas mileage because it didn't seem like there was any apparent issue. About a year ago my CEL started popping up intermittently from every couple of days to every couple...
  8. Soul Plus (2.0L) Automatic - Better MPG

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Eco or Normal mode, I still get 28-29 MPG combined. I had two yaris's before and I'm not heavy on the throttle. I drive 55-60 MPH on Freeways. I also have a racing tire guage and my tire psi is at 36 all around with K&N filter. I would like to get 30 MPG easily. Like without trying. My 28-29 is...
  9. Low MPG, give it a while or take it in?

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Background: 2017 Soul+ bought used, ex rental with 34,715 miles on it. I use it as a grocery getter/medical wagon/gad about town, so within the next couple of years it will likely become a low mileage car. Also noteworthy is that it's been in the high 90s and humid here since I bought it, which...
  10. Averaqge MPG

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    We took a long trip (3000 miles) last week. I was disappointed that the average MPG seems to reset every time I restart the car (it could be every time I filled up). With my Chevy HHR, the average mileage is continuous unless I manually reset it. I was hoping to get an overall MPG for my...
  11. Thanksgiving Trip resulted in a 5mpg dip in my 2017 !, what's up with that?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    This past thanksgiving weekend, I took a trip from Northern Alabama to Kansas City. 100% interstate driving. 80% of the time I was probably cruising at 75 mph, the rest of the time was probably between 60 and 70. My 2017 ! is my commuter car and regularly gets approx 28 mpg with 80%...
  12. First Fill-Up: 35.92 MPG

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    273 miles on 7.6 gallons = 35.92 MPG. The dash indicator read 36.6. So it's in the ballpark. Also, I tend to run the pump slowly, which means I usually get more gas in the tank than if I ran full-bore. So the actual MPG might be a little higher. I'll know better the next time I fill up. That's...
  13. 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...

    </span> <p class="p1">Making its global debut at the Chicago Auto Show, the Niro’s targeted fuel economy is an optimistic 50 mpg.

    I have been trying to break the 29mpg threshold in my '15 + with 2.0L and auto.I've tried various combos of driving style and using the ECO button with no returns.This week,I have been taking my son to do interviews and orientation for his new job.I decided to shut off traction control and the...
  18. MPG and AC

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Not a typical MPG post. Please don't scream at me! :-) I live in South Florida. The AC pretty much stays on in my 2013 ! 11 months of the year. I thought the 22.7mpg I always got was normal for an automatic (my first one) other day was kinda cool and happens to coincide with a fill up...

    So I've run about 5 tanks of gas through my new '15 Soul Base MT... Tank 1 (filled up from dealer) 339 on trip odometer, 10.825 gallons = 31.3mpg (dash read 32.8 and reset) Tank 2 330.9 on trip odometer, 11.56 gallons = 28.6mpg (dash read 31.5 and reset) Tank 3 343.0 on trip odometer, 11.484...
