Hello,

Recently I've traded in my eclipse cross for the new 2022 outlander. I love the vehicle and design. However, i find my mileage seems to not be what its rated at. I'm even trying eco mode and very slow driving habits to test this out. I'm wondering if anyone else is having similar issues. When I fill my tank it shows around 400km to empty. Seems not consistent at all. I remmeber seing over 500 km to empty. What could cause this? Any help would be great.

Thanks

Several items to keep an eye on: 1) Is the car using its gas engine most of the time? If so, try EV Mode, along with B3 driving mode. This will minimize gasoline useage. 2) If you are driving in very cold conditions (below about 10-15 F) the gasoline engine will run for a while to avoid draining the battery heating the inside. 3) Again if it is cold, you may not be charging the car very quickly or very completely so you use more gas. Mostly recommend becoming very familiar with your power meter. If your needle pops onto the RPM Scale you are using the gas engine. I have noticed that a single hard acceleration will often kick on the gas engine, and then the standard driving mode seems to be in no rush to shut it down and return to EV operation. Use of EV Mode and B3 driving should get you more electric use, and less gas. 4) Lastly, you are going to run out of the battery capacity someplace around 20 miles in cold weather. So if you are running more than that between charges you are going to use more gas and get shorter mileage.

I have an SE with about 2k miles on it. Mostly highway, I'd say, but a lot of stop & go miles otherwise.

Dash reports average 28 MPG so far. I don't drive in Eco.

Seems about right? 🤷‍♂️

I charge my phone in it all the time, usually have AC or heater on, so those things can shave a couple off.

SE AWD, I get 26.5mpg average so far with about 500 miles on the car. All city driving. When I do drive highway I get nearly 40mpg @ 62mph. I dont typically go over 2000 rpm. I dont use cruise control in the city and I accellerate very easily and feel for the push on the band in the CVT before loading up throttle. I just leave it in "normal" mode. I imagine all the "eco" mode does is software the throttle feel, I doubt it changes the fuel mapping or anything.

My best milleage was 15.2 km/l travelling mostly highway at 105-110 kmh. Wind direction will also affect your milleage.
If I get stuck in traffic it dips down to 9 km/l but usually in the city I get 11-13 km/l.
