2012 Rio EX Sedan UVO Auto/Tanzanite blue/tinted windows/Vent visors
Hello, would it be a good idea to start a 40's club for us Rio owners. I'm having this idea cause for six weeks in a row, my 2012 Rio EX Auto has passed the 40 MPG mark. Last entry is 575 km. with 35,597 L. My calculations show 357 miles, 6,19L/100km or 45.63MPG. Rio's computer says 5.9L/100km avg. A difference of 0,29L so I think it's almost dead on. The things I've adapted myself to: from regular to supreme gas, reduced speed to 90-100km, lot of coasting, almost no kickdowns except when merging with traffic, used AC when needed, opened up the sunroof when I felt like it, drove with front and rear passenger opened to 4 inches, smooth breaking, smooth acceleration. Can't believe it myself. I didn't changed my driving habits drastically. Sure, it's tempting to drive the car in a sportier manner and I do it at times to satisfy this need but, and I wonder if other Rio owners have had the same feeling, I don't feel like tossing this car around like I did with my Neon. I find that the Rio don't command that. The Neon needed to be driven "fast and furious". From O to 100 km in less than 8 seconds. This little devil couldn't stand still. All what the Rio is not...Tell me for the 40's club.
