I am really surprised Krafcik is still there. Any other self-respecting leader would have resigned by now.

last week my wife and i took a ride. we drove from tucson az. to sierra vista az. don't remember the miles and didn't fill and check gas used. if anyone is aware of the topography in southern az. you know that you are always going uphill or down. we drove on i-10 to 90 south to sierra vista, fry blvd. to bypass 90, 90 back to i10, i10 t0 kolb rd. at which point the computer said 44.2 m.p.g. the vehicle is a 2012 elantra limited. my average speed was 50 m.p.h. the car has 18000 miles on it. if you on't get a reasonable mileage something is wrong, either with the car or your driving.

so many poster's say the dealer says nothing is wrong, no codes, maybe the techs need more education?

I think most would agree 38-40 mpg is achievable for a stretch on the highway. The main problems comes when you drive mostly in stop and go traffic - You cannot get close to the 29mpg.
I get 24-26 in the 'city'.

The original 2013 Elantra sticker states: 29 City, 33 combined, 40 Highway
My best after 1,500 miles is 23 - 24 city, 25 - 26 combined, 33 - 36 highway
Quite a shortfall, even if it's not "broken in" yet.

#689 of 745 Great MPG!!

Just did a 1000 mile trip this past weekend.
L.A.-Las Vegas-Grand Canyon-L.A.
We drove our 2013 Elantra. And got 42.8 mpg. going about 70-80 m/h.
When I drive all city no freeway I get about 29-30 mpg. And that's in Los Angeles......
If you pay attention to the way you drive, it's easy to get that kind of mpg.
The A/C is a mpg. Killer... And if you get up 10 min late every morning trying to get to work on time, you'll kill you mpg. to.
We love our Elantra

Lucky you.. thanks for the driving tips, but even the tips won't help my combined 24 mpg. You wanna buy mine?

Yeah after every fill up for the first 30-50 miles my dash says 44-47 MPG. Come time to fill up again though the real number for the tank is 29-30. I drive almost entirely highway as well back and forth from work. I find myself coating to stops for long distances when nobody is behind me just to squeek out higher dash numbers which never match what I actually get per tank.
