Love most aspects of the 2014 Subaru Forester but one of the key elements which influenced my decision to purchase this vehicle was the advertised 8.3 liter per 100 km gas mileage.
Currently, I am averaging 13.6 liters per 100 km or 16 mpg.
Not impressed and will put a For Sale sign on this vehicle if this hasn't improved significantly in the next 6 months.
Would love to know what grade of gas you have been using and where you are purchasing it. Have two Subaru cars, (2003 Forester and 2012 Outback) Get 21-23 mpg (2003 Forester with auto trans.) and 26 -27.3 (2012 Outback with CVT) with stop and go traffic near Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
