Do you idle your car to warm it up? Do you accelerate really fast?I have 2017 kia niro EX at 30K miles.
I got it used at ~29K miles.
I drive the same way, same route everyday .
15+15 miles morning-evening drive to commute,
highway trip on I-66 north VA.
overall average is ~44MPG shown on computer, incredible if you ask me!
but, trip-A, about 100miles, shows ~23MPG.
how this can be possible?
how reliable is the mpg shown on the computer? lifetime or after refuel?
what you think?
Edit: just thought of another scenario. If you drive really slow in the cold it will use a lot of gas too. When it's cold and I have the heat on (wife in the car) I will drive faster to save gas. Especially when the route is all EV range (I have the PHEV).
