Mileage in winter
Good morning everyone!
The cold weather and stupid amounts of snow have finally set in here in Calgary and i've noticed a significant dropoff in mileage on my 08 FEH AWD. The dash is telling me 8l/100km however i've watched over the past few days that my fuel gauge is dropping quickly. I've now got half a tank of gas left and i've only done about 200km so far.
I've also noticed that with it being so cold out, the engine revs high pretty much all the time. Doing 30km/h down the icey streets and i'm revving at over 2000rpm whereas it'd only do about 1100 when warmer. I understand that the engine needs to warm up, as well as the battery pack however the day to day driving around the city is emptying my gas tank quickly. It also doesn't go into EV very easily. 45 mins of driving around yesterday and it went in once, for about 2 mins (slow go on Crowchild) at which time the ICE kicked back in and stayed running.
Anyone else experience this or is it time to make a trip into the stealership to get it looked at?
