My last tank ended at 23.8 of mostly city driving with 2 trips over 20 miles on the highway. This is the best i have gotten over a full tank. My current tank sits at 1/4 and it is at 19.6 and has no highway on it.

Mileage is about 1200 and It is a month and a half old.

My LX gets 23.8 mostly city some spirtied driving. Got 29.9 on the highway-at 70mph before switching to amsoil see below:

My wife's gl auto gets 27.7 same type of driving. The Gl brand new under 500 miles gave me 32.4 mpg at around 70mph on the highway, before installing the K&N air filter.

The LX (9,000 miles) is running amsoil 0W30W and the GL (3,000 miles) is running a K&N air filter haven't changed out the original oil yet but will be putting in amsoil 0W 30 and milage should go up!

I am very happy with the performance of both engines and their MPG.

20.1 on my LX (combined 60% City) and that is up from 17 MPG I was getting at less than 1000 miles. I was concerned but I drive 3 miles to work at 6 AM... a mile to lunch and back and then 3 miles home... I take the car out for longer drives on the weekend mostly... so I figure my engine barely has time to warm up and that is impacting my mileage. I make a point to take it out for long rides on the freeway when I can to keep the engine clean and give the engine a chance to run hot. I hope for small improvements after I hit 5000 miles (currently 2800) but I suspect due to my driving style and so many short distance trips I may never get the mileage some here do.

Got 30.5 mpg's this morning during my commute(50/50 rural/city).

I've got 2600 miles on it now and no I didn't follow Hyundai's break in procedure for the most part.

What is that oil? Never heard of ZERO W... Is that oil available in other brands? Have other posters here any experience with it? Lowering gas mileage??

I can guess that the ZERO is good for very cold weather (like right now in Chicagoland) but WHAT ABOUT SUMMER?

Actually most 0W30 weight oil are THICKER than most 5W30's(some 10W30's too!) until you get way down there like around -25 and lower,that's where the 0W30 will start to catch up and pass them.So for most normal non extreme applications a 5W30 will pump faster than most 0W30's will.

BTW
The Amsoil 0W30 is nice but the UOA's i've seen on it shows it seems to have a habit of thicking a lot,like up to heavy 40W stuff. :whistling:

I stopped by my Shell station mechanic, where I've been changing my oil for years. The guy never heard of zeroW oil...

Must be some magic Homeopatic oil, or WooDoo stuff from Central Africa.

I average around 22.5 MPG...mostly freeway driving, but it's in the greater LA area, so I spend a great deal of time sitting rather than moving.

My city MPG is rarely over 16 MPG.

Fwy I pull about 27 mpg if it's actually moving.

I travel 80 miles one way to work each day on the interstate highway. My average in my V-6 equipped Sonata is 25 MPG with my cruising speed at 80 MPH.

Yes but understand that in Canada our gallons are larger than the units you use State side. Our gallons here are Imperial so they are rated at 4.546 litres/gallon compared to 3.785 litres/ US gallon.

So when I say I drove it spiritedly understand that 22.5 MPG is the same as 18.7 MPG using a US gallon. :innocent:

When driving it for work I was averaging 26 mixed, but more hwy driving than city. Not very spirited in the driving though. The one weekend I got to rod the **** out it, I avg 17 on a pretty much City tank, then 31 on a hwy only trip. Average speed was 70mph.

22.7 on 70% highway, 30% city. Not bad for a brand new engine that will bring it like this one.


V6 engine, first full tank. Car has under 400 miles on it. I'll be delighted if I can get 24 consistently.
