2013 0 I average about 22-25 miles/gallon, but only if I use a fuel addative every 5,000 miles. If not I get at best about 21miles/gallon.

For a rather large crossover the fuel economy is absolutely amazing, check it out, it speaks for itself, and in the frist month we are getting exactly the rated efficiency, very pleased.

Always want more MPG but it is at least 25% better than my 2006 Ford Explorer. After 15K miles of highway, city and occasionally pulling a 5'x10' trailer, I'm averaging exactly 20.9 MPG.

Horrible fuel especially in stop and go traffic. I drive approximately 30 miles per day and within a week the take is nearly empty.
2011 4dr SUV 175-horsepower 2.4L I4

The window sticker said it would get 29 mpg on the highway. I did a 500 mile trip and averaged 25 mpg. On my last 5 vehicles I averaged 2 to 3 mpg more than the window sticker when on the highway. Something is wrong with this picture.

my commute is very short and I am averaging 16mpg despite the 'eco'light being on, which sucks

Not been brave enough to calculate fuel economy yet, but my Audi A6 1.9tdi used to return 33mpg whilst towing. I doubt the Sorento will get near that even solo!

Not great but we knew that going in. I try to drive as economically as possible and can usually squeeze 18-19 mpg in mixed driving (70%/30% split between highway and local).

I got the 4 cyl/FWD Equinox. It gets at or better than the city EPA estimate of 22mpg, typically getting 23-24mpg without AC, 22 with AC on. On the freeway, get 31-32mpg without AC, 29-30 with AC.

20 mile to the gallon may be 21 on a good day but thats it. not great for a 185 hp v6 gm could do a lot better
