I am still getting an average of 30 ~ 33 mpg after 3k miles. I am either a fogie, or Mitsubishi's estimates are too conservative.
I've found that the calculation of the car can be unreliable when starting after a 4 hour break, which resets the calculation. In such a short trip as your morning trip it likely wouldn't be enough time to affect the starting figure for the day. The 1 in the display means it is set to Auto calculation. You might try manual recalculation from start and see if it brings that figure more in line with what would be the expected normal.Here is the gas milage guage from home to work this morning. 2.5 miles. I turned eco off. It is some stop and go, but the highway I seem to be low too compared to what you guys are getting. Hum, I'm going to have to practice the "Mitsubishi touch" 😉
I usually don't rely on the guage and only calculate it at the gas pump. I keep all my receipts and record milage at each fill.
I'm heading out of town this weekend so I'll see what I can get on the interstate.
My car is a manual which may make a difference in fuel consumption, though autos are much better nowadays on fuel than they use to be.Yeah the conversation can be confusing but I guess if i was on the imperial gallon my last trip would have averaged 25.736 mpg vs my listed 21 mpg in us gallons.
ECO mode does a couple of things like optimizing the air conditioner compressor to only be on during times of peak efficiency and preventing hard acceleration from a dead stop. Mostly, though, it changes the shift ratios to keep normal operations at a slightly lower engine RPM, which is great for fuel economy but makes the car feel under powered IMHO. Most of this you can do yourself, just by not being a leadfoot at the stops and not screaming down the highway at 100 m.p.h. Think of it like a really annoying passenger (Daresay I mention mother-in-laws? )constantly saying in their most irritating voice "You're driving too fast."I see that a lot of you leave the ECO mode off. Does anyone know what that mode actually does? I've been driving with it on and working on driving conservatively but if I can get the same MPG without the eco, i will. 2019 Cross SEL...
