I find it hard to believe you got this kind of mileage using cruise control. Cruise control does not have a the light foot required to get this kind of mileage. Was your trip all down hill or something?jnewell said:I have an after-market cruise control and used it the entire trip
Jon - congrats on the good mileage. Keep it up! It'll get better when the weather cools off a bit.jnewell said:Trenton NJ to Wilmington DE on under a gallon
I put 44 poundds in the tires. (was 30) and that seemed to really make a big difference.
Other get this mileage as well!Hi, I have an 01 CVT with LMPG of 64.3 MPG at 26500miles. During the Summer I regularly get high 70's to low 80's on my 15 mile commute home at average trip speed of about 35 mph with a best of 86 MPG
Oh I believe it can do it, just not sustain it for very long. You drove quite an uphill distance (even though it was slight), which makes it even harder to sustain. Your CVT is special compared to the average CVT.jnewell said:If the 5-Speed can crack 100MPG why is it so hard to beleive that the CVT can get 74-76MPG?
Awwwwww......shucks........ Resist your making her blush.Your CVT is special compared to the average CVT.
[/quote:2l79kdbb]I can see you have to change some driving habits to get the mileage you want.
Of course, there is no free lunch.
