Why am i averaging only around 20 mpg. with a 2.0 ??????????????
The 2.3 is rated at 26 mpg highway which is based on speeds less than 75 mph. I have gone on highway trips where one way was into a headwind and coming back was a tailwind. The return trip had a higher mpg. So there are many variables from tire pressure to oil to the fuel you use including the blend of the fuel.Have had the C for 7 months, with the 2.3 and about 7k miles on it and have averaged 22-23 mpg in mixed driving from day one...pretty consistent. Took one big 1k mile trip where the speed limit was 70 most of the way and I averaged 75 (and of course everyone was passing me) and only got about 24mpg. I would expect much better results from the 2.0
