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!
