It does seem a little thirsty but I'd suggest giving it a tank or two and maybe a road trip and see what it does. After all it is new!

I can tell you that 3 months & 3400+ miles in, my 19 EX AWD is about right on the mpg money, 18-20 city, 22 combined & 24-25 highway. In fact, we just completed a 600+ mi run south on highways & I75 through GA & FL and averaged 24.9 & 25.3 @ 70-80 mph (depended on traffic & driver!). It'll be interesting to see what it does going back north cause you know we'll be going up hill!😜😜

And, I should note that all my mpg numbers are "real world" mileage (i.e., # of miles/# of gallons) not trip comp. calculations. In fact, over all fill ups I've found the trip comp. to read any where from 0 to 10% high, so I'd say it averages about 5% high.

Anyway, good luck & hope everyone has happy thanksgiving!
