      Accurate mileage/ versus miles per gallons

      Hello Y'all,
      I recently bought a '10 Aveo 5 with automatic transmission. I filled it all the way up to the cap the other day and drove it till yesterday to fill it back up to the cap again. I put 10.44 gallons and I drove according to the odometer 415 miles. This was highway mileage mostly but some city miles also. On the highway I was going about 65mph. I used the ac a little in those miles. So according to my math I got over 39 miles per gallon combined. My question to y'all is if the odometer is accurate on the rest of your Aveos? Thanks, Tony

      Sounds about right to me.
      My '07 Aveo, with a 5 speed manual gets between 35 - 39 mpg, regularly.

      I don't usually use my AC, though.

      But, I have a 22 mile commute, mostly highway driving.
      I'm a granny-shifter on city streets (makes people flip out, but I'm not power-shifting a y 4 cylinder), so I usually never drop below 32 mpg, even when I am driving mostly city streets.

      Sounds like yours is pretty accurate.

      That sounds real good. I have an 04, 5 speed sedan, and it gets around 32 MPG, which it has been doing since I purchased it seven years ago. Not as good as the 45+ I was getting in my old 2000 Metro, but better than a lot of vehicles on the road.

      I have an '09 with automatic. On the highway, in constant cruising it will get over 40 MPG. In the city, it's terrible, at about 22 MPG. Unfortunately, I live in a city. It's the primitive (but very reliable) Japanese Aisan automatic 4-speed transmission that is the cause. There is nothing wrong with your odometer. It's the nature of the beast.

      I log my fill-ups here: AVEOWA's Profile | Fuelly it is a good place to compare fuel consumption with other AVEOs.

      22mpg(US) is not unrealistic for 2nd-3rd gear city driving in an auto.
