I'm just into my 2nd tank with 600kms on the clock and the avg for the 2nd tack on the computer says its at 11.3/100 kms. 60 / 40 hwy city! I'm heading out for a road trip at the end of the month and looking forward to see what a good hwy run will bring! Its already a lot better on gas than my old Suzuki Grand Vitara was! It sucked it back big time!

Its been fairly flat driving we took it from IL to NY and back and averaged right around 18. Honestly if we stayed at 65 it was closer to 21/22 mpg once you break 70 its down hill fast.

V6 without the tow package. On highway at 110k it says I'm getting 8 - 9 L/100Km.

I posted this on another thread, but it's more relevant here:

I have 2,400 km on the clock now, since we took our first long road trip in the KL about 10 days ago - Edmonton down to the border and back again to complete our permanent residency application, about a 1200 km roundtrip.

The 'kee (V6 North w/towing package) behaved very nicely - quiet, smooth, comfortable to the extent that when we pulled up in Coutts 6 hours after we set off, neither of us were at all stiff or sore.

We got about 9.6 l/100km cruising at about 120 km/hr on the way down, mostly in 8th and occasionally 9th on some downhill sections. That crept up to 10.5 l/100km on the way home but we had a bit of a headwind that day (and I did do a quick 'high speed test' on a clear straight section - she goes past 160 km/hr with ease, didn't like to push it any harder than that!).

I did notice on the way back the transmission seemed to hold 7th a lot when it might have been in 8th, I found accelerating a little bit and then letting the car settle back down to the cruise control speed would often make it shift up.

I still have less than 8oo kms on mine and also have a heavy foot leaving stop lights - so total average to date with this cold winter and lots of driving in snow mode is not representative of how good actual mileage can be.

I did make one small road trip using cruise control set to 80 kmph (50mph) and did record mileage below 9L/100km so I know the TH can do it - just depend on how heavy the foot is and outside conditions.
