2005 ION-1 Sedan
Default Re: Epa & Mpg (hwy)???

I got 32 [2005 EPA] highway ONCE in my 05 ION 1 A. The lowest ever on several long trips. 35-37 is more the average [I have documented every drop of gas that's been pumped since mile 21] and quite easy. Far better than the "re calculated" rate of 29 on the EPA's website. That's mileage I have never seen on freeway tanks, ever.

City has always been higher, ranging from 25-27 depending of course on time of day, traffic flow, AC usage, etc. "Your mileage will vary", as they say.

The recalculated rates aren't "retested" rates using the new methods but appear to be an across the board 10% cut of all the previous tested #s.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
