Lousy fuel economy...
By dwilson on


2012 Kia Soul ! 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


I waited for the 2012 due to its supposed improved fuel economy.
I had a Honda element AWD which averaged about 25mpg.
Much bigger and heavier than the soul.
I am averaging about 27 or 28 with this little car... Same type of driving.
I figured to save about $700 a year on gas... Actually maybe $150.... I wish I had kept the Honda....

I have the 2012 4cyl 6speed and I get anywhere from 32mpg-35mpg in the city and up to 40mpg highway and I am not a very "forgiving" driver. I would see if there is something wrong with your vehicle.

Perhaps something is wrong with yours? I am getting 36mpg mixed driving using premium fuel. 33-34 with regular.
