2008 Astra XE
2004 VUE 3.6L
Default Re: Gas Gauge at 200 miles

I have a 08 Astra manual and 04 Vue v6 auto. Both do the same thing. I usually get around 200 miles right before the halfway mark then I am lucky to get an additional 100 miles with the rest of the tank. This is with city/urban driving.

On the highway I can get about 350 miles before I decide it is time to fill up.

Well filled it today... 348 miles, needle not far from the bottom of the gauge....25.4 mpg! . Alot of highway was on this tank but its the record best mileage this car has given me thus far . Interesting thing driving around with the needle that low and the idiot light on

2004 VUE 3.5L
Default Re: Gas Gauge at 200 miles

I've had my 04 V6 FWD VUE for about 6 months and I'm pretty satisfied with my MPG: strictly interstate, 34 MPG; mix of interstate and suburban, 31 MPG; mostly suburban (not mostly city): 25 MPG.
These numbers were no A/C, and interstate speed mostly 60-65 MPH.

2006 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: Gas Gauge at 200 miles

My '06 2.2L 5MT gets very consistent mileage when driven on the highway at 70 to 75 mph.

3/4 full = 115 miles (+/- 10 miles depending on how full the last fill up was)
1/2 full = 215 miles
1/4 full = 315 miles
Add fuel light = 385 miles (still above the EMPTY line on the gauge)

My car usually averages between 26 and 28 mpg. I run winter tires all year long so that may explain why I can't crack into the 30's. No complaints though since it gets about the same mileage in city driving, too!

Two thoughts - who would think of using a Korean SUV for general driving???

And, next time you mount up those Turanza or Nitto's - turn the wheel over to check country of origin. Most I've seen are stamped Korea.

If you go to the specs tab for a particular tire on tirerack.com, it'll tell you the country of origin.

If this is in response to my previous post - I was referencing wheel origin.

Bobby P tends to bad-mouth (good natured I'm sure) Korean tires such as Hankook and Kumho - probably doubts their safety.

I was pointing out he most likely has those pedigreed tires he prefers (Turanza and Nitto) mounted on wheels built in Republic of Korea.
