First road trip , over 9 hours driving and 8 mountain passes and by no means conservative speed ( 115kmh , 70 mph ) and just less than 1000 miles on the car. 40.5 mpg or 5.8L/ 100 km. Econo mode was not used.
No better way to break in a car than going on a road trip. Did you take any pictures of the mountain passes?
That's a good question but in theory it should adjust calculations just for consistency, would be weird if that's not the case.No pix .. been over then dozens of times ..
Here is one for the team here , and the 9th gen people couldn't answer it .. When you switch the speedometer from KMH to MPH does it calculate the MPG based on the US or Canadian gallon size on a car sold to the Canadian market?
Show me the page in the manual. BTW Ihave bought a new vehicle every 3 years from 1979 on so I'm not new to this .Wow really?? The owners manual in every new vehicle clearly states to NOT take the car on any long trip for the first 600 miles. You are also NOT suppose to use the cruise control, and be extra easy on the breaks during this 600 mile period. I hope you haven't done damage to the engine during this break-in period.

No mention is made of cruise control. Or extended highway constant speed driving, though I have seen this in other OMs.During the first 600 miles (1,000 km) of operation,
avoid sudden acceleration or full throttle operation so
as not to damage the engine or powertrain.
Avoid hard braking for the first 200 miles (300 km).
You should also follow this when the brake pads are
