Fuel Consumption Starting to Suck

Maybe it’s the “winter fuel” mix but my fuel consumption is really starting to suck. Used to be that my regular commute to and from San Diego would be a 27/28mpg ride but now I’m lucky if I get 24mpg. The car does have 120k miles on it now but when people ask me how the car does they laugh and say they thought the MINI was economical, a car that small should be getting 30. Yes, it should.

In other news our biannual trip to AMVIV is definitely not happening this year, we’ll be going to the UK a couple of weeks later (to see Robbie Williams and Take That in Dublin!) so time and money make it not doable. If the MINI is still running in 2012 (and the Earth hasn’t been destroyed) then perhaps we will see you all then.

Happy New Year to you all.

One thought on “Fuel Consumption Starting to Suck”

  1. Me, I’m going to quite a few MINI-parties this year… Dragon, AMVIV, MITMs, and maybe MINI United.

    My mileage has never been better than 26 though I have seen a rise in MPG in the last few months as a result, seemingly, of the removal of my radar detector from the dash? I’m now at around 27.

    On a long trip with the wife to an earlier MITMs she did 90% of the driving, we got a whopping 34.1!

    Happy new year to you also, it’s nice to see some MINI blogs still going since I ditched TwistyBlitz. I do miss writing it but not all that much. Now I just write family stuff on my
    personal blog with some MINI stuff here and there.

    Let’s hope the Aztec’s were wrong.
