Update to my MPG post of April 20/11. Today (April 8/12), with 15,500kms on our V6 Rondo now, I made a 350km trip. With one passenger (I usually have 3 besides myself), a load of luggage, and running on studded winter tires, I decided to see what fuel economy a V6 Rondo could achieve. At a steady 100km/h cruise (62mph), I was getting 7.5 litres/100km, or 37.5 miles to the Canadian gallon. At 110km/h, I was getting 7.7 litres/100km, or 36.7 miles to the Canadian gallon. Since the last 50 or so km of my trip involved a lot of hills, the final fuel economy overall was 8.0 litres/100km, or 35.3 miles to the Canadian gallon. I am quite pleased with the results. And I should imagine that with all-season tires and just myself, I can probably break 7.2 or even 7.1 litres/100km (40 miles to the Canadian gallon).
