Re: 30 MPG Club for XB2
I'm new to the forum, but not new to the xB2. I currently own a 2015 xB w/MT. Two weeks ago with summer fuel, I was able to get 39.9mpg on my tank. I'm now averaging 37.1mpg. The vehicle is 100% stock. PSI is 2lbs over.
I do a lot of legal hypermiling. No tailgating. Lots of neutral, little use of brakes. I owned a 2012 prior to this one. Got 216K out of the front brake pads. I was getting equal MPGs out of it until the oil consumption manufacturing defect took hold of the motor.
30mpg is very easy with this vehicle for anyone really. Just don't drive like an ass. Easy acceleration, coasting (AT) or neutral (MT) to stops and intersections. Don't exceed 4mph over the posted speed limits on secondary roads.
