i consistantly get BETTER MPG's than any vehicle is rated for.

my current company car is a GMC Canyon. EPA rates it as 25 mpg highway.

i have been averaging 28 mpg with 50/50 mixed driving, and the highway driving is at 75 mph.

AND this is with 10% ethinol gas witch blows for mileage!

what say you?

2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee:
Slightly better than EPA with 100% gasoline (that I can still get at the local Co-op!).

About 10% less with Ethanol blend, 15-20% less with E-85. Even worse with Winter blends.

Re: do you get better or worse MPG's than the EPA claims?
EPA fuel economy averages are calculated using a standardize test on a chassis dyno. All cars must go through this test and these are the only numbers allowed to be claimed by the manufactures.

No conspiracy.

If you get better mileage then you are a better than average driver. If you get worse mileage then you are not such a good driver.


All cars are capable of getting better mileage (if in proper tune).... ultimately your results may vary depending on weather and the driver.
