My commute does have a lot of stop and go but this seems like very bad fuel economy to me. The little green leafs tell me that I'm driving in a reasonable manner, any advice on what I should do?
EDIT: Currently have Winter tires and it is Winter so heating system is on full blast a lot. Could this cause that much of a dip in gas mileage?
I'm getting pretty much the exact same mileage. I've averaged between 9.5 and 10.5L/100 on my last 9 fills.
my driving is mostly city, i do some highway but it's for short stretches of 10kms or so. i've been blaming it on traffic and the way i drive, but maybe there's more to it than that. if i'm on hte highway at a steady 110kph and i reset the mileage meter it drops to around 5.6L/100 eventually.
funny enough, even though the meter drops to 5.6L/100 my distance to E never really changes.
but yeah my daily commute just seems to generally suck for mileage.
