Default Mileage

Mileage. Interesting to read what people are getting in MPG.

I was going to put it out there, has anybody thought whether the MPG recorded on the PTs is normal?

I do the same trips every single week, and the mileage should come up to a grand total of 200 miles overall. However, driving the cruiser it records as 150 miles.

I found that my Rav which supposedly done 30MPG cost me 40-50 a week in fuel, but the PT cruiser has cost me only 30 for the week. I am well impressed.

Are you saying your pts odometer only registers 150 miles when youve driven 200?

I am questioning now whether the odometer was wrong in 1 of the cars, but I am surprised at my cost reduction as I was planning on having to spend a little more as others have suggested a lower MPG than the rav would do.

I am just happy that I am actually paying less in fuel each week.

Just been on google maps to find the true distance, and I think the PT is actually right and my rav was way out.

I certainly think the PT cruiser does more MPG than others have said, I feel mine does around 33MPG.
