Owner Story: Road Trip Once Again Brings Best Ever Fuel Economy in 2007 Aura XE V6

From AuraDrvr89: Once again this summer, my family and I traveled to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. It's a spectacular amusement park, for those who are not familiar. Last year I averaged about 33mpg on the way there, and wanted to see if I could beat it this year. We drove from my home in western New York straight into Sandusky. It's a fairly straight run.

This year, instead of trying to make good time, I decided to travel the speed limit the whole way. So I went exactly 65 MPH for most of the way, and exactly 55 MPH where it was marked as such. I accelerated slowly and tried to use Cruise Control as much as possible.

Well I am happy to report a overall gas mileage of 36.9mpg over about 220 miles. I filled the tank before I left, and filled again when I got to my destination to check the mileage. The DIC reported 37.2 as per the picture below. So it's a little off, but not much at all!

I'm very happy about this!! This fuel mileage has officially surpassed even that of the best I observed in my '04 Ion. That's not too bad for a 224 horsepower V6.
