Benny, I have seen as high as 29 mpg, but that was driving to Phoenix. Across the desert. The Long, hot, flat, boring, desert (I gotta do that Saturday.. eek!)
Now, for reality.. on my daily commute, freeway, city streets and a LONG climb up the hiway with my elevation gain, about 22-23.
Towing on my long trip to Oregon last year, I got as high as 19. I forgot exactly, but I am going to say I averaged 17 or so.
Dan, I haven't gone through a tank yet! I have commuted 2 1/2 days in it, (100 mile RT) and it is at 1/4 now. I suspect that tomorrow I will have to fill. I am running the tank down so I can see how many miles I get on the trip meter before I start to think about filling.
I know I could fill and calculate now, but I want to see if the gage is one of those that sticks on full forever then suddenly drops to "E" when it is low. So far, the gage seems linear enough.
I finally got the Element home today! (Had to wait for my friend to be available to drive it) My parking area is full, but with just a minor adjustment to the trailer position, I have plenty of room for all 3 rigs, and am nowhere near approaching the nieghbors line.
(Yeah, wait til it snows
