Thanks LordReddawg!

WOW 350miles with 3/4 tank! thats awesome

I burned 1/2 of a tank in about 3 days, my compass did 158km-98miles in 1/2 tank.
BS ........

we just run to the school and come back, rarely with push 3500 rpm to.
mostly keep the rpm between 1500- 2500, We are calm drivers specially with kids, snow etc.

Thanks

New Review just drove back from Family did 301 miles then light came on but did 320 there was a lot of traffic i mean alot of stp and go sat once for 40 mins(car was on fire about 0.5km ahead of us ) didnt want to push it anymore to scared of running out lol and i see thats pretty easy driving if u drive like that then i would get it check out for some reason ur burning way to much gas look into checkng ur fuel filter and injector if one of them if messed but it could be pushing or pulling to much fuel that is a good sign

have you had any more info or has your gas mileage improved any?
I bought a band new jeep compass with 47 miles about 2 weeks ago, and at first I thought somebody was stealing my gas, so i started leaving it in the garage.

i filled up the tank when i hit empty and i reset the trip, my first 1/4 tank was done in 38 miles, then half the tank was gone after 86, then at 113 miles i only had 1/4 of a tank left. and I had been driving very cautious and very easy.

I left my car with the dealership yesterday so they could try to figure out what is wrong with it, but when i told them what the problem was they though i was stupid and didnt know what i was talking about.

Any Help with yours?

1/2 tank in 3 days, that is definitely something wrong, or could just be the gauge. btw how is it going so far?

What is the temperature, low temperatures really kill the mileage in these vehicles.
