Been driving my 2.0T now since end of May and have 1400 miles in. Mostly in-town driving but computer is indicating that I am only getting about 19 mpg. I did a manual reset on a short road trip of 45 miles and got 26 mpg for the trip so that seemed pretty good at 65 mph. How are other 2.0T folks doing in this area?

I have a 2.0T AWD and I usually get between 19 and 21 mpg relying solely on the mileage computer in town. I took a trip earlier this summer that was almost 2000 miles long over two weeks and I got between 26 and 29 mpg all highway, most of that going 70 to 75 mph, with 3 adults and the back full of crap. I'm very happy with the mileage I'm getting. Of course I had a V8 4WD full size king cab truck that got about half the mileage as I'm currently getting so of course I am thrilled.

:smoke:....My SFS is a 2.0T - FWD....Purchased last October...It now has just short of 9,000 miles on the clock...

On a recent 1,473 mile round trip through the mountains of western Md. - Wva. and Ky.....we averaged 28.3 MPG total for the trip...:D

The 1,473 miles included some city miles in Louisville, a 3 mile long accident backup on the interstate, and of course, the long up hill mountain grades...

Our interstate speeds were 65 to 80 MPH...the ECO was on, and the A/C was on every now and then...

The MPG was figured manually, as the computer is always optimistically too high...(it read 29.3 MPG):confused:

I have to think that the 'broken-in' engine....the summer gas...and the warm temperatures are the cause...

Last winter, with few miles on the clock, winter gas, and cold temps...my combined MPG was 21 - 23 MPG....Now it`s easily 25 - 27 MPG...Again, that`s combined...

The EPA for the 2.0T - FWD is:..20 city...27 highway....23 combined...

Am I happy with those numbers?...You 'betcha'...:bounceybounce:

'javelinahog', hang in there...yours should improve as the engine miles mount up...

Good News! My mileage is getting better. Now about 21 mpg in the city. Apparently has a real break-in period. Absolutely love this car when compared to a 2010 Chrysler Town&Country minivan which I traded in. Love this car!!!!!

Same here...

On the trip I mentioned, it handled extremely well and was very comfortable...No 'driver fatigue' as in other cars we`ve owned...Even my picky wife could find nothing negative to say about it, which is unusual..

The turbo boost is there when needed, and as you know, it`s a real 'kick in the pants'. Surprises me sometimes...

I sometimes find myself looking for reasons why I have to take a spin in it...

Like you...I love it...
