Lol.... if you drive your Compass with any sort of hurry in mind your lucky to see much more than what your getting. I’m getting 16.7 with mine.

I was getting an easy 30MPG on the highway. If I kept it below 60MPH and didn't make it work hard it could approach 40MPG. [See attached photo]. That was on a trip from Colebrook to Berlin NH, about 50 miles, open roads, and at a pretty consistent 55MPH except for a couple small towns where I had to slow down a little. While the roads go through the mountains, I was on state roads with reasonable grades.

I'm sorry Jose, I forgot to welcome you to the forum. Welcome! I hope you can find a way to improve your fuel economy.

I should also remind you that a brand new engine takes a while to break in. Your oil consumption will be high at first but will gradually decline. You won't be getting your best fuel economy until around 10,000 miles. Meanwhile, take your Compass for a nice long ride without stops and starts and see what you get for mileage then.

And don't forget you must manually reset the gas mileage display each time you refill with fuel. Other cars I had (Honda) would automatically reset the tank average when you refueled but our Compass does not, so if you don't reset it you will be looking at your lifetime average and if that includes the first few miles of the car's life idling and being toodled around at the dealership then your average will be skewed low. Check the owner's manual for the specifics of how the fuel economy display works and how to reset it.

my 2018 gets 33 in the winter and 36 in the summer
highway driving with cruise on the speed limit

when you get above 60mph the mpg drops

when you do city driving the mpg drops

it seems made to run 55-60mph for best mpg
