Laurel, I think you mean 11.8 liters/100 KM, which is 20 MPG...if this is on the hwy then you are seeing the same thing I am.
You're right Todd. I did mean liters. Ours is mostly suburban driving i.e. max of 80 kilometers per hour but usually about 50-60 with lots of stop and go. We have the all weather tires on for the past couple of months and the all seasons are advertised on Craigslist with no interest at all.

I have the 2.3L, have now driven 4,500km (in Canada), I drive alone most of the time, mixed 60 highway/40 city, and have consistently been averaging 14.5L / 100 kilometres, which equates to a mere 16.5 miles per gallon. My MKC is absolutely horrible on gas consumption, no different than my 2013 Explorer!

I also have an issue when filling up with gas that the sensor stops the gas flow with almost a gallon left to go. With the tiny gas tank, every little bit of gas helps to avoid filling up every 5 days!

Very disappointed on this aspect.

Have you maintained your cold tire pressure as the temps dropped? Just a few pounds low equals quite large mpg loss.

The main reasons for early pump shut off are: So that no gasoline spills or plashes out the fill neck at point of auto shut off. Space for expansion in the hot temps of much the cooler gasoline coming out of the storage tank. In the event of a collision with a full tank. My Grand Cherokee stops with two gallons of extra space on a 24.5 capacity.

I have 2.0 with 1200 miles, most driving done locally and never more than two people in car. The fuel economy meter has never been reset and says 16.9
very disapointed. My Old SRX with 3.0 was getting 18. Expected a little better with the " ECOBOOST".

Yes its northern driving but weather has still not gotten to bad. And tires are full. And its not a Turbo race car. I dont hot rod it is what Im trying to say, but yet I dont baby it looking for gas mileage either.
I didnt buy it for gas mileage but expected better. My son has a GMC Siera
1500 V8 and is getting 16.5.

16.9 MPG, that's abysmal.

I got a 2.3L, and the worst mpg is not what I got compared to your 2.0L. Dunno how you get that It's winter here, and I'm a heavy foot driver.

Any #s I got is about the same as greg9233: ~19 to ~21MPG.

kensgranam: I recall last week our MKC was at 18.4. About 75% city driving, it does spend time for cold morning warm ups, deicing and wife is not easy on pedal.

Just wondering, are you saying you have never ever reset it from factory or did you once you purchased and have not sense? Also does your engine spent much time idling, warm ups, deicing, or in rush hour traffic?

I also recall, for some reason O/M states we will not obtain best fuel economy till like 5 -6 thousand miles. Would need to reread that page.

My MKc has 3,967 miles and I'm getting 28 hwy with my 2.3 @65 mph using 87 Chevron and 22 in town 30/45 mph. I just watch what's going on in front me to avoid any unnecessary braking or speeding up.
