#1076 of 1080 Brazil-spec Forester 2.0l

2010 model, AWD, 2.0l engine with 150hp.
Getting between 21mpg city and 30mpg highway.
Interestingly, no better than our 2.5l US-spec Forester gets, despite the smaller engine. Roads here are awful, though, with lots of pot holes and speed bumps you have to slow down for.

Doesn't the fuel down in Brazil have a lot higher ethanol content than it does in the US? If so, that would account for at least part of the reason you're not getting the mileage that you might expect.

On vacation trip with loaded car, Thule box on top and bike rake off back, 16 mpg...not bad and if didn't have Thule box on or bike rake, would expect 18 or even 19 mpg, but around town daily driving, no better than 13 - 14 mpg

I'm not sure, but it does have some ethanol content. To be fair, so does ours (in MD at least, E10 IIRC).

I took a trip from North New Jersey to Myrtle Beach SC and got 30 MPGs on the highway and 25 in the city. Very happy with this mileage
