    Signature mpg

    We are totally loving our Signature! Beautiful and fun car.

    I'm wondering what others are seeing for mpg?

    We haven't seen >23 mpg yet.

    Understanding we have only 1200 miles on the clock, we do a lot of short trips, stop and go, and it's been pretty cold here and with winter gas just seems like it should be better than 22 max. We've been springing for the 93 octane but honestly aren't enjoy the turbo through my right foot much, will go to lower test soon.

    What say y'all?

    24.8 averaged over 3K mi. (combination of rural/city but not much stop and go commuting)

    24.5 is my over-all mpg since ownership 25XX mi ago including every single drive.

    Typically though, I average 25-27mpg per tank if I don't flog on it.

    We just hit 18 for the first time on the last tank. No worse than our old CR-V, so we're happy. We've only had a couple trips over 10 miles and just hit 1k miles at the 3 month mark.

    Thanks all. Motor is hardly used at 1200, I expect it will get better.

    18!? Even at 10 mi trips that seems very low.

    Stop and go vs. Highway perhaps.

    My 15 mile trip home from the office in the afternoon is all stop and go.

    Mine hasn't. Same 25-27 as new. I really doubt it improves. I juet think the newness is lost on the owner and you romped on it less.

    I am just at the end of my second tank of gas (about 575 miles).

    The first tank was a little over 23 MPG.
    This second tank is nearly 25 MPG (not Total So Far, but just that tank of gas).

    I'm retired, so no daily commuting. My shortest trip is 10 miles except for hops between stores sometimes. I live in a very rural area with lots of curves and rolling hills. I'm not stop & go, but I am perpetual accelerate/decelerate. Very little driving under 45MPH.

    That first tank of gas had about 10 highway (70MPH) miles on it.
    The second tank of gas had maybe 90 highway miles on it (a 45 mile round trip).

    I just commented on this elsewhere. With those short trips and cold weather, you may want to get it out on the highway weekly and let it go for a while at normal operating temps.

    Glad it is not just me, but I'll see if this improves. First tank was 18.8 MPG, second tank I was up to 22.9 from some highway driving, but it is back down to 20.2 after idling with the AC through a couple drive-throughs. Sigh. Still less than 500 miles on the odometer, and it is a little too easy to use the accelerator on this thing.

    Wow. I am getting almost 24 MPG in a CX-9! I assume the power is a little too addictive?

    How accurate are the onboard mpg figures compared to checking mileage when filling tank and doing the math?
