i just purchased a new 2018 niro and am getting exceptional gas mileage. my range is 571 mile per tank. my first fillup was 8 days after leaving the KIA showroom.
i traveled 508 miles and added 9.265 gallons to my small tank (54.83 mpg). so far so good. i was wondering if running the air conditioning and bluetooth google maps and any other electric devices will have a affect on mileage. i really want good mileage. i traded my rav4 with 130k miles in for this and was not getting good mileage...but never had a problem with that car. the fact that my wifes samsung can bring up maps on the display with audio is outstanding. although cargo space is less than the rav4 it still gets my mother-in-laws walker in there. push button start take getting used to. i did attempt to lock the car and was not able to do so since i seemed to have forgot to turn the car off. it is so quiet. (bad move that) i am still reaching for my keys. i also love the rear video, but still check left and right before backing out.
i try to always drive in the double green area for best fuel economy and will continue to do this. i do take my foot off the gas to get back into the double green eco area when i am paying attention. i have only had the car for 2 weeks but am very happy so far. as my friends say....tell me in three months if you still love it
Congrats on a brilliant choice of vehicle! You're doing yourself and the environment a favor! I'm assuming you are driving the FE trim to get that fuel economy?
