I own a 2004 Axiom XS and I love the vehicle. Great ride and very comfortable. Current mileage is 24000+. My MPG breaks down like this:
City driving 18 - 20 MPG
Hghwy driving (55 - 61 MPH) 25 - 27 MPG
Hghwy driving (62+ MPH) 21 - 23 MPG
You can watch the MPG drop as you increase the speed beyond 61. I drove from Norfolk, VA to Atlantic City, NJ and got exactly 26 MPG. Norfolk, VA to Myrtle Beach, SC 25.7 MPG. Norfolk to Roanoke 26.6 MPG.

#10 of 16 Gonna test real-world mileage tonight

I'm about to drive about 250 miles from Central Maine to near Boston. We'll see how I do - I have a 2004 Axiom S with 41,500 miles and brand new snow tires. Let's hope for good numbers

Not bad - about 22-23 mpg overall.

I just bought a 2004 Axiom S 4WD with only 6,000 miles. (Yes, that's right.) So perhaps it's not yet 'broken in' and mpg may improve a bit.
On my 2nd fill-up, the average mpg reading provided by the vehicle's display claimed 17.9 mpg, but when I calculated the miles I drove divided by the gallons used, my personal calculation was 16.1 mpg. That's a pretty significant discrepancy -- basically 10%!
By the way, I am a delivery driver. The 17.9 mpg figure would be rather good if it were true. 16.1 mpg is certainly what I expected when I bought this vehicle.

I asked my dealer about this same thing and was told the on-board system only gives an estimate of MPG and miles to empty.

Did you reset the average mpg after you filled it up? If not, reset it after the next fill up and check it again. You will find it is much more accurate this way.

Yes, I have reset it each time. Today I filled up and calculated 17 mpg while the display claimed 18.7 mpg. So the display was 10% off again.
I'm curious if using synthetic oil and a K&N air filter would improve mpg a bit. I often read people claiming that doing this can add 1 or 2 mpg, but I did both things for my previous car just a month before selling it, and they basically had no impact.
#16 of 16 Recent MPG?

What the best anyone has gotten? My normal driving 90+ on highway, some city nets me 18mpg. When I drive it like a Prius(never above 51mph or 2k revs) the best I've gotten is 23.8
