Default fuel mileage

What kind of mileage are you getting? I've a new 2010 equator that only getting a little over 13 miles to the gallon Is that about what everyone gets?. I was having a problem with my four-wheel drive and thought thats the reason for low mileage, now that's fixed and mileage still low.

I have a 2011 4 x 2 Equator crew cab. The MSRP on it says 15 city 20 highway. The 4 x 4 I believe drops to 14 city and 19 highway. You are on the money. I get 14.6 city, dont know yet about highway, have not taken it on any long trips yet.

Last tank I got 14.8 mpg... but that was mostly state roads between 35 to 55mph (not interstate highways), some stop signs/ lights in towns. There was some snow and I did use the 4x4 a few times..... So I didnt think that was horrable mpg.

I'll be doing a road trip next week - - I'll post my fuel mileage results as soon as I can.

just filled up this morning, got 16.9 no four-wheeling, all highway miles. That's the best it's been in 3000 miles.

I get around 16 just around town which is a little better than the 15 it suggests. Mixed it's close to 18, and pushing twenty on the road cruising at a reasonable speed. My mpg monitor likes to say 22+ but from my calculations that's off a bit. Overall the mileage is what they say it is for my 2009 RMZ Sport. It currently has 19,000+ miles on it. Not my every day driver by any means. For that, it's my 2009SX4 Sport which is pushing 40,000 miles. 6 thousand of those were a cross country trip my dad and I took in fall 09.

No problem parttime. I've actually been to these forums before, but never signed up for an account. I am interested if anyone's chipped their Equator and how it affects warranty etc. I have heard someone did and it upped their mpg's and hp.

I've not heard of anyone doing that, but I'll keep my ear to the ground and let you know.
