I just completed 346.9 miles on 12.927 gallons. This is most likely going to be a personal best in the Compass for me. I coasted, I used the autostick, I went around corners at speeds that were insane even for me, I don't think I went above 62 mph. I shut off the engine at long lights, in town I used the autostick to stay at around 1600 rpms. No air conditioning not even a fan.
It got me 28.63 mpg. I guess I will live with that as EPA said I should max out at 24.
Maybe if I install the borla exhaust and custom build a dual cold air intake, preheat the engine block, move to Kansas for flat roads, take out all the seats and sit on a milk crate, remove the spare tire (including the one around my waistline), inflate the tires to 60 PSI. I could make it to my goal of 30 MPG.
