Did the new wheels cause the huge drop? or is it the local? Thanks FFers.
i get about the same all city but i have a lead foot

250 miles? That suck, I was expecting more mpg on new the fits. I think you should go back to 16 inches wheels instead of 16 foot wheels to get good gas milage. That 16 foot wheels hurts your gas mileage a lot

Fit Mileage

Ok, I just bought a 2008 Fit Sport with 109K miles. Drove it almost 600 miles, 95% interstate, doing average about 75 mph, often over 80. Filled up completely at start of run, let the pump click off three times feeding it slow the last two. The gas light came on at 316 miles, that was 36.8 mpg when I filled her up. Regular gas, almost all 5th gear, across Georgia part of Alabama to the out Florida Panhandle. I was happy, considering the speed. Will be keeping up with mileage over time, something I do with everything I drive. The 1996 Chevy Silverado 5.7 that was traveling with me got 14 mpg over the exact same trip, we stayed together the entire run. The Fit is fun to drive! Woody


BTW, larger diameter tires makes the speedometer off, as you are actually covering longer distance per revolution. This can easily be 10% extra distance covered. I verified my speed and distance with GPS, the speedo was dead on.

13 sport manual
have a log book for everything done to the fit and pretty much every 11 days put 10 gallons in, give or take a little while going 400 miles, also give or take a very little
best tank was 429 miles

interstate speeds(70plus) i get worse mpg than my normal work commute which is mostly 45-55mph

i do absolutely nothing as far as hypermiling and tire psi is 35ish

I got an average of 50.5 once. My speed was 65mph over the trip though. The total distance before the low light was 445 miles. I usually only make it about 330-340 before the light comes on, so about 34mpg average. I like it, just wish the Fit had better insulation and noise suppression.
Still love it!

The mustang gets about 100 miles with a 14 gal tank... lol!

This year so far I've had 47 fills, averaging 456.7 miles at 46.1 mpg. The longest was 575.9 miles. Yes, I had a 1 gallon gas can in the back on the last day, but I didn't have to use it.

I can't do any better than 29 MPG. My V8 Mustang GT gets 21, and my V6 Malibu LTZ gets about 22. Sadly, back in the day, my wife's 89 CRX would get something close to 40MPG.

I'm lucky if I get 250 out of a tank with conservative driving, I used to get 350 or so with the same driving habits so I'm not sure what happened and I only have 24k on my car so unless there is some sort of mechanical issue I haven't noticed yet I have no reasonable explanation.

418.6 miles then a 9.75 gallons fillup. That's shifting at 3k and keeping engine load under 40%. Mixed summer driving with a little a/c usage

I average about 380 now.

lightweight rims and tires have made an enormous MPG difference.

I bought Kuhmo Sense 185/60/R15 they weight 15.7 pounds per tire and i have the Mini Imola R81 rims ~12lbs each for a total of ~27.7 lbs per corner. it really makes a difference!

Usually around 270....a lot of local driving lately. The only time I ever got over 300 was during road trips.
