So we know what these cars are rated at from the factory, however what kind of gas mileage have you been getting in the real world?

On 9.7L/100km at the moment but that's after a freeway drive. I'm guessing it will settle around 9.9–10.

Depending on whether it is freeway/city driving

Freeway cruising I reckon around the 7.7-8L/100km

City can vary from 10-13L/100km (bit more of a lead foot hehe)

On average yeah I agree it is about 9.9-10L/100km

You know, I've no idea if those figures are good or not. I will put some figures up once I've got the car and see how I compare. Usually I just have a look at the trip and make a mental note of how many KM's I get for a full tank or half tank.

The dash display makes it easy for you and tells you exactly what you're getting. I think Kia rates it at 8L but it's 9.7 for me which is still great compared to 16 in my old Jeep.

I'm getting about 26 mpg combined city and highway driving. I keep my koup in eco mode about 80% of the time if that matters, I also live in the Midwest so the terrain is very flat.

Ive had my forte5 sx for a month now, at first my consumption was around 13l/100 Iwas getting about 350km a tank. I was breaking the engine in tho so I was always on and off the throttle, keeping revs between 2-5rpm. Now that I'm driving it normally I'm getting about 10l/100, which I'm happy with I do more city than highway driving.

I've just done a 500 km roadtrip and i'm quite happy about the fuel mileage.

Highway (80km) @ 110km/h = 6.9L/100km or 34MPG
Mountain road (350km) @ 105km/h = 7.3L/100km or 32MPG
City with hard acceleration = 9.7/100km or 24MPG

I have only 1500 km done with the car, so those numbers should be better and better..

8532 kms on the clock and averaging around 10 l / 100km - everyone says the consumption should get better after 10 000 kms - will let you guys know.

Has anyone tried experimenting with different fuel types or additives? I usually use regular however once I tried the higher octane and did not notice anything different.
