Re: Mileage after the MDM update (recall)
I was going to post today on this exact same topic this morning. I just filled up after my first full tank after the recall. This is my 79th tank, and I hit several firsts for the car (03 HCH CVT, 40K miles)
Avg MPG: 45.38
Avg error margin on the MPG display: +3.1 MPG (the display was always higher)
Best Tank: 48.75 MPG
First Tank After Recall:
MPG: 50.09 (not only a record for the car, but half the tank was with A/C on)
Error margin on the MPG display: +.02 (best prior was +1.3)
I also noted in another thread that my MPG display (the bars) were also different. At 500 miles I'm usually at 2-3 bars - this tank was at 5 (I had reported 6, but was mistaken). Obviously I was getting better mileage, but it seems like all my guages are more accurate since the recall.
Tires were at 40 psi - checked this before the tank. Oil was 0-20W. Weather was hot - no rain, but as I mentioned 1/2 the tank was driven with A/C on. I know it's only one tank, but I like the trend!
