improvements in gas milage
I now have 5,500 miles on the patriot(FDII). I put Mobil One full synthetic in at 3,000 miles and have figured out how to drive the cvt a little better. It is now averaging 21-22mpg in the city(houston). That is accordind to the EVIC, but I check it traditionally about every third tank. In my experience, anything over 68mph or so(I try to keep the revs under 3000) and the mileage starts dropping quickly. If I try and drive it like I used to(70-80mph with more spirited acceleration) it will drop down to 17-19mpg.
