Seems if a vehicle that size can get 30 a mid size sedan should be getting 40 with proper gear ratios and an ecominded driver.

Winter is almost here so 50 will become difficult for the cruze anyways. Probably be put in the garage for the most part.
Yay!

Is it the exploder that just about every single one of them on the road has a cracked tailgate, or is that the expedition?

I set my (seemingly unrealistic, but maybe not?) mpg goals a while back:

Trip: 45, 50, 55
Tank: 40, 45, 50

I have already achieved my stage one goals for both trip and tank. My next TWO steps are 50 trip mpg and 45 tank mpg.

No matter how unbelievable the goals they are still realistic. Your pushing numbers nobody sees with a v6. The explorer doesnt have any cracks that I know of. Just cracked coil spring that all of them apparently have. Almost as prevelant as the PCV failures on the Cruze. I expect mine to go again before I'm out of power train warranty.

Well winter is here as I watch my mileage drop I delve deeper into the ideas and projects on this page. From 70 degree weather 50-52 mpg down to 30 degree weather 40-42 mpg. I just recently threw an upper grill block on. Seems to have bumped me up to the middle. Right about 46 most drives. I would like to achieve 48-50 go sustain. My goal of 50+ average.

Yep.. winter is hard on fuel economy. You can do several things to lessen the hit, but it’s still not as good as Summer economy.

I miss summer blend already lol other day it hit 57 degrees and it still didn't pull near the numbers I was getting 2-3 months ago. Last tank I gave ol blue balls a little European tune up. Didn't seem to do much other than make me wanna do it more. Thinking ill do some modifying to up the intake temp a bit. Direct off the manifold may be a bit excessive but since I blocked grill intake temps have been running around 15-20 degrees higher and warm up is a mile to mile and a half sooner. Around 4 mpg average difference for a 16 mile drive. There is 2-4 mpg more somewhere lol
