611 Mile range!? I'm no where near that when I fill up.Highway trip from Boston to central Jersey.
6000 miles on the odometer now.. Still getting better. Pentastar obviously!
65-75 mph, no ECO mode, 20 minutes of traffic or so.
Love the range in this thing! Can do a real big road trip without worrying about finding a gas station.
Eco mode frustrates me too much to stick it out for 500+ miles.Has anyone tested if Eco mode really does much to get better gas mileage?
read a while back that US dept of energy reckons that every 10% speed increase = 15% worse fuel consumption so if 60 = 25mpg, 66 = 22, 73 = 19mpg etc.On my 2400 mile trip, I found that speed had EVERYTHING to do with the MPG you will get. Once you get over the 70+ mph range the MPG drops rapidly. I was getting 25+ MPG when I stayed around 70 MPH (due to bad traffic) but I only got around 19-21 when doing 80+ MPH.
If you are driving 55 (I don't know how anyone can do that - drives me crazy to go that slow) then you will probably see 25+ MPG.
Running 90+ in Wyoming didn't help my overall MPG, LOL.

At highway speeds aerodynamics is the biggest problem any vehicle has
