At ninety percent city driving, 270 miles on 93 is as low as I can let it get.

If I'm not mistaken, you have an automatic.
Manual transmissions are a lot better on gas.

Bigger wheels and tires create more rolling resistance, which also hurts mileage somewhat.

i have my winter tires wich are my stock rims with good tires as oposed to my 17's for summer driving..

i guess hammering it off every light is the problem but i just miss my performance tires wich give me that better pick up.


so right now i am useing $20 Cad for 150 - 175 km il try to reduce my milage cuz i think the gas station tendant is starting to wonder what i do.



thx fo rthe imput and ya ather its and auto

my millage per tank goes down alot in the winter... I guess from the winter tires and less traction. I'm sure that this plays an impact on your millage.

I get about 26 mpg with a heavy foot. But I do have the M50 in mine so mileage is better as the car doesn't have to work as hard to get around town.
