mine is also always high but it's within 10% of manually calculated which is on par with other car's I've driven. My guess is this is going to be like my HHR, which uses a basic flow meter, it will be more accurate in the winter and less accurate in the hottest part of the summer. Gas is slightly more dense when cold and less dense when hot.Just to add to that - a computer mpg calculation which may lead some drivers to believe they are getting higher mpgs. It has been often mentioned on here that the calculation is too high and that has been my experience.
I've read the lemon-aid guide by phil edmonston, lots of problems for the cars there, i fear having costly problems later on when i buy the car, can i get, sort of a list of what problems are common for the sfs?
Gas mileage suffers around town. Highway I have gotten 28.5mpg(by fillup) (from Houston to San Antonio). not bad when consider the speed limit in 75mph for ~85% of the trip.The biggest issue you will face on a weekly basis is gas consumption. Especially on the 2.0T which is the version we have. I'm not surprised though. Any 2 litre engine capable of producing 264 horsepower is doing it at a cost. .
