Nothing precise - did I mention I've got 3 kids? I am just referencing the car's computer and my typical driving habits. My commute is just over 100 miles total per day. I just rolled over 7500 miles since getting the car in early October. When I fill up I am adding about 10.5 gallons and I seem get about 400 miles per tank (The computer range resets to about 450 miles). The car usually ends up at 36 MPG and change. Over the weekend my city driving will cut it down to 33-34 MPG on the dash display. I am fortunate in that my commute is pretty flat. I've noted at 70MPH it says about 36mpg. At 65MPG it goes up to 38-39mpg, and anything less than 60 you are easily getting 40+. Still totally pleased with the car. Can't get the "Eco Coach" thing to work, but who cares.Report it
is your mpg from the computer or are you tracking on something like Fuelly? In any car, never trust the computer, always track it yourself either online or in excel.Report it
Update: Almost had the Veloster a year. I've put on 26K of freeway commuter miles! No problems really - other than a gas cap that didn't seal properly once which caused a check engine light. Brought it to the dealer and they fixed it quickly, under warranty. The exhaust is a little sooty. Still get about 38MPH driving on flat road @ 75MPH. No problems with any of the electronics or transmission (mine is a manual). Freeway acceleration is fine - if you can drop it into the correct gear. 4th works nicely for freeway passing. GREAT CAR!Report it
