Fuel economy?
Ok. I am proud that I am getting a 29mpg avg on a tank. I drive a 07 Pat 2.4l fd1 manual. I also found out today that when the low fuel light comes on I have about 28 miles to go. She started sputtering as I pulled to the pump.

Yea, that low fuel light comes on awefully late for my taste. However, I wish it had a 17 gal tank too :p

My low fuel light doesnt come on at the same miles to go every time.

Along the same fuel mileage comment, I just upgraded from a 2011 Compass 5-speed manual with a 2.0 engine to a 2013 6-speed automatic with the 2.4 engine and I do believe I am getting better gas mileage.

I have an '11 compass 4x4. I average 25-28. On long drives and trips I regularly get 30 - 31 at 65 - 70mph. I hand figure the mileage as well as use the dash readings. Usually within .3 of actual.

The time now is 01:50 PM.
