fuel consumption

I have a Trailhawk 2.4 engine one year old in March and fuel consumption is killing me. The average on the total mileage of 12,000Km is 16.7 liter/100km. During summer I was getting 13-14 l/100km (360-380km with a tank), but now, in the winter, I'm hitting 17 l/100km (I cant make 300km with a full tank).
I'm driving only city, most of the time 20-25km at once (driving to and from work).

Is this "normal"?

Cheers,

hmm Interesting. Mine is practically new and I drive a good mix of HWY/City and my average after 3800 kilometers on the clock is 11.4L/100km. I expect that to drop once the motor and components are fully loosened up.

How heavy is your right foot?

I have a '15 Trailhawk with the v6. Right now, I'm getting 17.9L/100km for mileage. Absolutely terribad. I'm in Ottawa and driving daily from Orleans to Place du Portage...so I'm hoping that the cold weather and crappy roads has something to do with the poor mileage.

@alphaswift that is horrible. Do you use remote start often?

2015 TH here. Have used it both on highway and off-road. For the 6,500 miles we have put on it, we are averaging 24.3 mpg.

"City" driving is subjective. Stop and go kills gas consumption and idling at a red light or in traffic is zero kilometers per gallon.

Exactly why Prius', for example, get better milage. It shuts the engine off whenever it can.

@alphaswift There are a lot of variables. What mode are you using? Are you using ERS? Are you using remote start? How is the traffic?
Your personal driving habits will have the biggest impact on fuel economy. Hard acceleration from a stop will have a big effect on mileage. For comparison, this winter I typically average 10.5L/100kms, if I use my remote start it is usually around 11.5L/100kms. We have had a mild winter so far so haven't had to use remote start often.

Exactamundo! Idling at lights can never bring your mileage up. It only can take it down. I use the stop/start feature as much as I can.
