.... and I remember the great laugh I got out of it when you said it.... Still makes me laugh...lolololoGee all those posts from day one I made that the overall fuel economy of my R5 sucks hot donkey balls no matter how I drive finally comes to fruition. Imagine that, I was right.
no problem, sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad (like my last tank)glad I took that advice because the reality so far is 8.19 (thanks OzSLS ).
I would have still bought my Rio, I still love it but it is interesting to see the real figures.
I am typically not in the practice of leaving money on the table that is being reimbursed to me. Feel free to mail me your debit card.Would you even bother with getting the rebate?
Apart from a few people that may have 20k or more the most people will get back would be enough for a tank of petrol at most. Kia would be better off just handing out everyone a free tank of petrol.
Even if they fudged the numbers, its not the apocalypse. I wont bother with the rebate, I didnt buy the car for its economy. I brought it because I wanted it.
haha this ^^I am typically not in the practice of leaving money on the table that is being reimbursed to me.
WOW that's a big discrepancy.
I use an app called 'Gas Manager" and the actual economy compared to the trip computer is out by between .3 and .5 of litre per 100km with each fill up.
I've done just under 9000km in 4 months with my Rio SLi (manual) and fuel economy to date (actual) is 6.8L/100km. Given that I do 80% freeway/highway it's a tad disappointing but is no drama as i didnt buy the car purely for economy.
I've had a few 6.5L/100km (based on per tank) and these are always when I have had only to and from work (100km round trip mostly freeway). And a week ago i had 7.9L/100km when I was on leave and did very little freeway driving.
Based on my driving style (I'm no grandma but I dont thrash either) the economy isnt great.
Wow - good for you. I've had my car for a year,.... I'm just over 6,000 miles and I'm averaging 38MPG in the mountains of western Pennsylvania. Not everyone is getting poor fuel economy. .....
