I feel this. 10-13mpg is about what I'm seeing. And that's driving mellow.

Doesn't sound right, but this is a things gone wrong thread I guess. Are you running sport mode .... what kind of fuel are you using.... 20% ethanol?

Unless you have a flex-fuel V6, 20% ethanol can damage your engine and "may void the vehicle's warranty." See page 423 of the owner's manual.

Re: Things Gone Wrong Poll

In California, the crazies here put some ethanol in all fuel from my understanding...but it's not 20%...I think it's like 10%.

Is anybody noticing a huge difference between 89 and 87 octane?

Re: Things Gone Wrong Poll

The only problem I have had is the 730N RHR looses the Home Address and all entries in the Address Book. Anyone know of a fix for this problem?
