Canadian EH is right. Think about the weather? Why does it rain after a cold front hits a warm front?
This is axactly why Dew Point is used to calculate the "feels like temperature" on the news everynight.I think it does
Warm air has the ability to hold more water than cool air. Due to the spacing between molecules (density): Warm air, more space (less dense), more room for water. Cool air, less space (more dense), less room for water.
Or this is my understanding?:dunno:
Pretty much exactly what I got in my old 2.0T auto. Couldn't get to or over 20mpg in the city if I tried. Best I ever saw on the highway was 27mpg doing about 60mph.2.0T
Highway = 24-25mpg.
City/Traffic = 19mpg (this is completely babying it, never going. I do city/traffic about 90% of the time)
hyundai doesn't set the mpg rating, EPA does. They do independent testing. what they use to test, is another matter.Yes the mpg really SUCKS for us suckers that thought a 2.0t auto would be better than a v6. My gf gets 16 mpg. Hyundai sucks!!!! Fvcken liars!!!!:gc-wmsmiley-this-to
Update: Contacted Hyundai Canada, and all I got was a generic response that certain variables can contribute to poor fuel economy such as incorrect tire pressure, dirty air filter etc etc etc... I challenged the CSR on her generic response, and informed that these cars have a TPMS, and car is new, so dirty air filter and worn spark plugs blame is completely invalid. They came back with "Please bring this concern up with your dealer during your first maintenance visit, as they are the best to diagnose your problem"2.0T auto... I'm averaging 13.7L/100KM mixed driving. About 65% city, and 35% hwy. I accelerate slowly, and the occasional over-take on the right lane due to a parked car. 87 Shell octane. AEM drop-in air filter, that is it. No other mods.
First,remember that speed eats fuel. Drag increases greatly with velocity. Second,I drive from california to utah yesterday,and was neither driving slow nor was I driving it gingerly to conserve fuel. I was balls to the wall,hauling a$$ on the open road. (I wont say how fast I got it up to,and Im not saying that I exceeded the speed limit,but I will say that I happen to know that it drives very nicely at 135 and that it just cruises along at those speeds without a care in the world. I have a 2.0 R-Spec btw. If you were on I80 in Nevada,that black blur that you saw fly past you was probably me)I think you are a little off base here.
A few things come in to play with MPG as I am sure you know. First of all with the octane gas you put in... The car will run on 87 but runs best on 91. They are not telling you that you have to run high octane only that you get best results with the high octane. So you should have done a little research before purchase.
Second I get around 27MPG 60% highway 40% street, in my v6 so it sounds to me like you have your foot into it all the way when your driving.
Third those numbers on the sticker are best case scenario, it is rare to actually ever see the promised MPG...
