Mileage? (Canadian)

I'm wondering how many Km's Canadian Compass owners are getting on a Full Tank of gas?

What's the least you've got?
What's the most you've got?
What do you usually get?

And is this highway / city mix or just highway or just city?

Thanks!

G/F does most of the piloting.

that being said I think the best was in the neighborhood of 500 to 1 tank - all highway.
worst ws upper mid 300s when the thing was brand new, mostly city.

I still maintain this CVT is rough for mileage - easy for it to go downhill if you have a heavy foot.

I can pt around town easily an have 9.2/100 showing on the fuel economy estimator. Highway I think thebest observed was around 8 flat.

our first few tanks were poor - between the vehicle breaking in, and learning how to drive the CVT somewhat consistantly / gingerly..

I must admit having that estimator display is nice, it really acts as a conscience for me.

The first few tanks were during winter. I never went more than 350 km on one tank and believe me, this was a full tank, gas was spilling a couple of times because I tried to go to the gas station less often and I completely emptied it one time to make sure the gage wasn't bad... Bottom line, it wasn't.

Now, the weather has warmed up, no snow anymore, temperatures averaging 20 degree celsius and about 12,000km on the meter. I'm having a much more satisfying ride but it is not good enough. The best I've had so far was about 480km on a full tank (very very full to about half a liter remaining)

All of this is a mix of city/highway driving. More highway driving in kilometers but equal in time (ie 10 minutes city for 10 minutes highway, usually, every day).

I now use the cruise control everytime I can on the highway, I drive around 105 to 115 kilometers per hour depending on traffic and which route/highway I'm on.

Conclusion, my mileage is much better now than it was. I guess it is because it was brand new and now that the break in is pretty much done it is getting better and better.

I estimate that, highway only, I would do about 500 kilometers but not much more than that.

By the way, the worst I had was about 250 kilometers.

I had:

4x4 mode on
ESP OFF (completely off, not partially like when you press the button while driving, you have to follow a procedure to do it, I can explain if necessary)

... and fun in the snow for 2 hours doing tailspins, slips and almost flipping the truck over 1 or 2 times, hehehe.

Costly on the gas but I had so much fun. I'll try the same this summer in the mud or sand if I can. The fuel consumption meter went around 27 liters per 100 kilometers at one point, this is where I decided that this was getting too costly to do hehehe.

Got my Compass Sports 4x4 stick shift a month ago (May 8th '07)
My City is about 21mpg
City/Highway at 60miles per hour is about 23.5mpg
I haven't tried full highway yet...

Nowhere near the 26/30mpg...I hope it'll get better than that.

That was probably the Winter Gas you don't get as good mileage on the Winter Gas as the Summer Gas.

We're now about in summer and I'm still unable to get over 400 kilometers on one tank (and believe me, it is very empty at the end cause I put 51 liters in it, it is maxed out)

Best I did was about 470 once with only, ONLY, highway driving on cruise control at around 110 kilometers per hour. It is not even close to was its advertised.

Is it possible that something is wrong? Other people on this Forum seem to be getting much better mileage.

Try slowing down. If you travel 80 km/hr you will get closer to what they advertise. I definitely don't get what they advertise either..about 10.1L/100km and that is mostly highway (about 90%?) doing 100km/hr. My compass doesn't like any sort of idling/city driving nor speed and is even worse in winter. Our 3/4 ton diesel truck gets better fuel economy in the winter than my compass and is only slightly worse in the summer.

21.2 MPG/US or

Thats with the 5-speed, mixed moderate driving.

The best I get on my 08 2.4L is 375KMs on the highway at the moment. Traveling to Florida in March and hoping for around 450 KMs. Will let you know.

Dear RED VORTEX and all, you wrote<: ESP OFF (completely off, not partially like when you press the button while driving, you have to follow a procedure to do it, I can explain if necessary)

can you give me more explanation please?

Can you also explain me if there is a particular procedure to have the complete automatic block of the doors during the travel or you have to block them every time manuallly?

I will have the European Diesel version 2.0 liters, do you guys know how many liters for 100 KM? (average of course)

Crummy Mileage

My 09 average so far is 13.49L/100KM or 17.65MPG

I am lucky to get 350 - 400 km on a tank right now.

The one thing I noticed is that my RPM's seem to sit around the 1000 mark in gear sometimes a little more. It can take a long time after the temp gauge reaches its operating area before the car drops back to 550. And if you turn it off for a minute or two, its another 20 - 30 mins of driving before it slows down.

Guess I should ask the dealer. I have keep mileage logs since I bought it in '07

Its an 08, North Edition, 2.4 CVT, 4X4

Smile Gas consumption update

I've been watching my consumption since new and coming up to 25,000km can report:
12.4L/100km or 22.4MPG-Imp. (19MPG-US).
Not terrible for a 4X4 under moderate driving.
If the gas tank could be just another 5 or 10 liters, the range would be that much better.
