Took my RTL-E on its first road trip. 110 miles split evenly between highway (55-70) and rural (40-50). Maybe 10 miles in stop n go traffic. A/C on. Avg 24.2 MPG.

The onboard
the display is usually off by a couple. I live on long island and the speed limit is 55. Although most people are going faster, I would like to get a mpg reading from someone actually doing 55. MPG's really drop after that speed and most of my daily driving is 50 or under.

I'm jealous...I've got about 100 miles on my RTL-E and I'm only showing an average MPG of 16.8. I'm beginning to think something is miscalibrated. Granted, it's been mostly city (20-35mph) but I was expecting a little better than this.

I bet 95% is local. 100 miles! %80 of the gas burning is starting it up and drooling over all the gadgets! :grin:
