Default Re: My best fuel economy so far

I've had my Saturn 2009 Vue XR since April 2012. The best mileage I've gotten is 26.9 mpg. This is on the Interstate and holding the speed between 65 and 70 with the cruise control and AC on. I've noticed that heat and humidity will affect the mileage. I will lose 1.5 mpg when driving in temps over 90 degrees and even moderate humidity.

There is a sweet spot at 68 mph where the mpg does the best. I have a feeling that the engineers have geared the vehicle for possible towing and hauling.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
