  1. Fuel Economy (lack of mpg)

    2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    First, I love my new 2019 RTL AWD. I have 200 miles on it. My problem is the computer says I’m only averaging 13.5 mpg. I am not an aggressive driver and I am not gunning it around town. I took it out for a 30 mile trip on the freeway and kept it between 65-70 and still 13.5 mpg. I don’t smell...
