8-9 is not normal. do you have any modifications to your toy?

hmmm, if its still under warranty, i would take it back to the dealer. my warranty has long since disappeared. take advantage of your low miles.

Hi. I have a 2010 also and I get about 12-14 around town with the a/c on driving like grandma! Something is up, I would bring it to the dealer. What are you getting on the highway? Best I can get on the hwy is aobut 16-17 with a/c on. If i turn my a/c off it increase about 1-2 more mpg. Good luck!

i just refill and thats what i get 26 liters to do 48 km in town....

i do two 0/100 km and a couple of little acceleration, when you calculate thats done 50l/100km..
i'm not cheap on gas but its very high....

on highway i got 17-18 mpg at cruise speed of 65-70mph... thats what i don't understand?????????

Wrong fuel? I believe less than the recommended 91 will cause worse off gas mileage.

91 is the minimum you should run, so you should be fine with 91.

i would definitely try to reset your computer...leave the pos terminal off overnight or for a couple hours if you cant do all night and/or take a nice highway trip like 100 miles at the speed limit to get it used to the higher MPGs and/or use a better gas. i use sunoco 93or mobil 93 if i cant make it. i filled up about an hour ago and calculated to 12.882mpg with 18.142 gallons even with beating on it for about 70 miles. all in the driving habit. youll figure it out.

Maybe your catalytic converter is clogged. Any codes???
Definitely take it to the dealer for a check up.
