on my new 2009 Ridgeline has been better with time. I found a new trick for increasing and that is to use the cruise control as as possible, even in the city there is ample road to do so. don’t do jackrabbit starts.

will kill your You’ve got to remember your a truck with big tires increase rolling resistance.

I found that by setting the control slightly higher my desired speed and then, the decelerate control bring the down to the desired speed. By this, you will see the mpg stay than if you just set the control at the you want and don’t go over speed first.

I have been getting to 19.8 in the city using technique. My highway mileage has 22.7 to 23.8 consistenly at on reasonably level interstates. the vehicle at 70mpg is max for me. I notice speeds above 70 mpg start to a toll on mileage because of resistance.

There is a big trade off speed vs impact. Another thing to is not to use the cruise control when the takes a steeper climb. causes the … to downshift and the runs faster increasing consumption.

#87 of 95 Getting better by

With 8K on the clock the mpg is getting better. commuting is more in the 18+/- When new, it was in the 15-16 mpg

Recently my wife and I took a 1 day trip from south of to Cherokee N. Carolina. Typical N. rolling hills most of the way mountains the last 30 miles or so. One was steep enough that the dropped to 3rd gear.

About half the trip was 1/4 four lane roads traffic lights, and 1/4 two lane with some small Total trip was about 385 Travel speed was posted limits and very little over 65.

Stopped to eat twice and for a Pit Stop. Spent about 2 at the destination.

Gauge in the car said we got 24.8 Gas pump and calculator showed mpg. Filled up at the same before and after the trip.

Let the run on the slowest setting and removed it on the click both times. is the first time the gauge has less than the calculated Might have something to do the constant running vs my usual type driving.

A week or so I (alone) took a trip of 175 total miles to north and back, but not into the mountains. were constant rolling for the entire trip. Ran the posted limits but not over 65 much at Measured the mileage going a top speed of 62. Trip home had a top of 65.

RL gauge showed 27.8 one way and the other. Did not calculate at a fuel Even if the gauge is optimistic by mpg, which is usually the that is still good for a brick.

Conditions were a day and AC was not required. Cruise was used ever possible. FWIW I believe that most RL achieve this kind of under similar conditions.

In my heart of hearts I believe if I had driven 70 mph the economy would dropped 5-7 mpg. But I would gotten there a few minutes

Problem with most is a desire to buy cheap gas and run as fast or than everyone else. I buy or Shell 87 octane which proven over and over to get mileage than the economy for us.
