I purchased my new XV Hybrid in late March and since then I’ve only reached an average of 27 mpg (mostly city driving) each time I fill up with gas. I’ve noticed other owners experiencing 30+ mpg but for some reason I cannot get there. Granted, they say you should you not worry about your gas mileage until after your break-in period of 1,000 miles and I only have 600 but it does make me wonder what I should expect going forward.
The one thing I have noticed after I purchased the car, is when I took it home and gave it a once over I noticed the tire pressure to be 42 psi in each of the tires. I looked in the manual and noticed the front should be 32 and the rear to be 30 so I let out the air to meet the manufacture’s requirement.
I’m wondering if the reason some folks are getting better gas mileage is due to those folks having 40+ psi in their tires. For those of you getting expected mileage could you report what psi is in your tires?
