I doubt the numbers your electronics are giving you. But don't feel defeated, even if not accurate they will most likely be consistant, just try to beat yesterdays number, and every day gets better. Tank averages will follow, but just not match.

Is that a typo, don't recall honda makinga 2.0v6, seems small, brother had a accord hybrid with 3.0v6 which I thought was stupid as it could barely better the 3.1v6 chevy malibu I had at the time.

In D or N ?

Answer: in N
Interesting. The SG2 says .26 GPH (imp - based on recalibrating it on tank to tank) for my 27 Diesel in N when warm. Goes to 0.45 in D.

Idle consumption numbers will vary greatly depending on any accessories that are running at the time. My 02 Insight was .11 GPH. Most 4 cylinder engines will be in the .15 to .25 range, while a large V8 will be .5 GPH or even higher. I told someone once that my Insight used the same amount of fuel going 40 MPH and his V8 used just sitting there running with no accessory loads.

I drove close to 200 miles today to pick up a 2 ton AC coil to replace one that was stolen. Temps were in the low 30s. The gauge said 49.3 MPG when I got home. I used no accessories, NOT EVEN THE HEATER. The unit fit in the back of my Fiesta with less than 2 inches clearance. Saved close to $1000 and still got the same warranty as a new unit. I would have been lucky to get 2 more MPG in summertime, thanks to my grille block.

regards
Mech

Way to go making me feel guilty I haven't grille blocked the cobalt at all, saw -22f on way to work this morning and supposed to be colder tomorrow morning. Filled on Sat and was at 40mpg, down to 38mpg when I got home tonight at just under half tank.

House to garage doorr is open cause floor drains are freezing up, maybe I can rig something up tonight.

So today I purchased Torque Pro and the MPG numbers are looking way more accurate then the free version of the software. My Last tank was not as great as I was expecting, we have been in the negatives for a few weeks now. Also it keeps snowing wich I feel has been hindering my mileage.

Anyway today I made an 80 mile round trip on the highway. I decided to set my cruze control at 50mph. It felt strange to be going so slow, but my overall trip MPG was great 23MPG average. Driving slower seems to work great!

The new results are in for my last tank. Overall tank average mas 19MPG not bad considering two snow storms and sub zero temps.
