im waiting to get the factory oil out then i wanna see where the mileage ends up.. im loving thes numbers so far. how accurate is the on board comp system? i havent compared it to doing actual math. will next fill up tho.
I have a 2.0L auto and the computer is not matching the math at the pump. I will read 32 on the car but when I do the math its 29. Don't get me wrong its better then the 14 I was getting with my truck. I have 2000 or so miles on it now and just thought maybe the computer needed time to catch up but im starting to wonder now.
I'm an old codger and rarely drive my car. I spent hours with the motor running just to keep the battery in shape while I learned all the great features on my 2013 Dart LE fully loaded with all the options including the Garmin map and Sirius. I've only owned the car for a week.
I've only made three road trips with the car during that week: 4.3 miles and got 15.0 mpg; 19.3 miles and got 29.5 mpg; 0.8 miles and got 6.7 mpg.
I just broke 14K on the odo and I switched to premium 2 tanks ago. Before switching displayed mpg was in the 29-30 range. Running the 92 the displayed is up about 2mpg. Running the math at the pump is 2-4 mpg less than displayed. My driving is mixed but I have been trying a light foot to see if I could get close to some of the numbers other members have posted. It is pretty hilly around my area so this probably plays into the numbers I am getting. I did fill up sunday as I got on the highway and drove 65-70mph for about 80 miles and got a 41mpg displayed. It has been steadily dropping since. I'm getting mileage close to what I got in my old Neon and lovin every mile of it cause the Dart is a hell of a lot nicer.
