I still do not know how you get that kind of MPG. My wife's gets what the sticker says...and that is with me doing everything I can to get it up there......Must be the hills of NW PA -NE OH. Well it is ok...not great for a tiny motor with limited power mated to an "Efficient'' cvt. Of course....it is the shape of a cracker box.AS a female comic used to say, "Can we talk?"
In this day and age, 31 mpg is OK, I guess, but not really good, and definitely NOT exceptional.
Just as a "for instance".....when I make the 26.5 mile trek from my place down to Inverness, FL, my car will be reporting as high as 43 mpg for the trip. It's just a two lane blacktop, and I try to stay within the posted speed limits.
Even out on I-75, trying to keep up with traffic, usually moving at 80+ mph, I'll usually get OVER 31 mpg.
But at 77, I'm not your every day driver. And, I set up my 2020 Soul (or any car) for maximum efficiency out on the road.
I run my tires at 42 psi, (or as close to that as I can get), and I use a K&N Air Cleaner, and I use a very high quality (and expensive) anti friction additive in my engine.
All told, my little Jem just runs GRRRRREAT!
That reminds me, I need to service my K&N Air Cleaner today.
Y'all have a great day now, Y'hear?
