I won't know for sure what mine is until my next fill up. I will calculate it then.

Don't let your DIC miss-lead you.

Sorry couldn't resist.
Nobody knows TJ91's DIC better than he does. He's had plenty of time to play with it. Megan or Isabel would have no idea what to do with his DIC.

Maybe not, but they'd look damn good doing it!

She would say it was too big of a screen.
But on a serious note, ive resetted the drivers information center about 10 times now, and fuel economy is either the same, or worse. No idle time either. Believe me, i am using all the gas saving procedures you can do. The car is still only getting worse

Well I still think 500 miles is f -all when it comes to expecting gas mileage to improve.

Hylton, i am aware that it is still breaking in, but Francone has only 300 km on his car and is getting 12.8 which is 98% city. My car now has about 800 km, i wasnt expecting the fuel economy to improve that quick, but i sure as hell wasnt expecting the fuel economy to decrease under the same driving conditions

Sure but these engines leave the plant with different tolerances. Perhaps yours was tighter than his. Anyways, if it makes you feel any better, take it into the dealer where he can check it out.

Francone, what rpm are you shifitng at? If its not too much to ask, do you mind resetting your avg fuel economy and driving the car a bit shifting at 3000 rpm? or occasionally 4000 rpm. I want to see what your getting in comparison with mine and take it in to the dealer if theyre way off. My car doesnt even seem that powerful, seems like shes just a bit quicker then my brothers 05 stang v6.. She feels about the same right now.
I know that Scott had a problem with performance and fuel economy, maybe my fuel economy is a siign that my car isnt really up to its best performance either

TJ, I'm with you. I know your not dumb and know what you are talking about and being very careful from what it seems. There is def a problem somewhere, maybe its the calculation of the DIC is messed up, or the car. Either way take it straight to your dealer and have that thing checked up ASAP and let us know what is goin on. Hope everything works out for you very soon.

Question, is all of your data just based on the DIC? Maybe do it the old fashioned way. Trip/Amount of gas you put into the car at the pump. That would determine whether or not the DIC was the issue in a miscalculation.

Are you driving it in M or sport mode? 200 miles on mine and getting 20. Honoring the break-in guidelines too.

I'm getting over 30 on my drive to work on the interstate. Automatic with cruise on. Think it was 30.8 yesterday as I picked up the Camaro on Saturday morning. Around town, it is low.

I think my car might have somthing wrong with it

You are resetting the MPG indicator every so often right?

yeap, just got home from work. Taking her out for a drive soon. Going to reset her again literaly for about the 7th time and see whast up. On the highway i resetted it and got about 10L/100km cruising at 125km and in 6th gear. I was happy with that, but then city driving came back. And i live in brampton so its like suburb city driving and the car went back up to 16.4. Then i filled up, and resetted her again, and then i got 16.2. So shes holding steady around the 16s but getting worse bit by bit with the same driving.
Going to the dealer next week for an oil change, shell be at 1000km so ill see what happens after the oil change and if there is no change. Then back to the dealer she goes. Thanks for your comments guys, i still cant grasp the fact that my V6 is taking 16L for 100km in the city

Hey Dennis, do me a favor and fill it up and drive it to empty. Record the mileage as soon as you fill it and drive her until the warning light comes on. Let me know how many KM's you get to the tank. This method won't lie!

I like you Pink! Driving it hard will be an understatement for me after my break-in time!

"wasn't there a Black one parked there last week?" ROFL!!
