Poor Fuel Economy

2012 Chevrolet Cruze LT Fleet 4dr Sedan (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


I bought the Chevrolet Cruze 1 year ago after reviewing and driving many other models.
I needed something with good fuel economy because I drive 130 miles to work each way.
The car was advertised at 30+ for city and 42 for highway.
About 90% of my driving is straight highway miles at 75 mph with the vehicle on cruise control.
My average fuel economy on highway has dropped from 32-35 to less than 30, and around town from high 20's to low to mid 20's.
The car does not deliver what it advertises.

4 Years later, this is still true. They falsely advertise high miles when the vehicle gets nowhere near that amount. My average driving to and from work in Southern Utah to northwest Las Vegas - 130 miles each way of all highway driving, my average fuel economy is still right at 30 mpg -- nowhere near the 42 they advertise on the decal on the car.
