Re: Poor gas mileage and shifting
Well, I guess I'll throw my 2 cents in on this topic. I was pretty upset too about the mileage not really being anywhere close to the advertised, but it seems to run about the same as most of the posts I read here....AWD version, updated flash program, 20.5 MPG at the very, very best I can do over a 300 mile trip. Sucks around town...13-14 MPG, and the best I can do on the open road is about 22.5 @ 65 MPH. It makes a BIG difference in how fast you drive. 70MPH drags it down to 21MPG pretty quickly.
I had the flash done on the transmission last winter (at about 12,000 miles). I was getting up to 25 MPG out on the road before the programming change. Now it shifts better (not quite as doggy), but it really knocked the gas mileage. By the way, I am taking all of my readings from the DIC.
