Re: 04 xB fuel mileage

Bottom line is the xB is a brick. I have 86k on my 5-spd 2012 and only get 26.5mpg even on the highway.

The 2gen weight and displacement lowered the mpg, but the summer blend fuel will give you a couple more mpg.

Snow and ice makes you more gentle = more mpg.

Re: 04 xB fuel mileage

Let me Chime in. It's all about your driving habits. I track my MPG on a monthly basis ever since I put my '05 RS 2.0 back on the road November 2014. I have never averaged less than 33 MPG in any of those months, and I drive it every day. I will say I avoid stop and go traffic like the plague, but not easy to on So Cal freeways during work commutes.

Re: 04 xB fuel mileage

Yup. 90% of it is the driving circumstances and how you manage them. I do a 60-mile round trip commute and hit 42.2 for the week last week. Most of my gains come from choosing urban/suburban boulevards with speed limits 40-50 mph versus the 55-70 mph of the highway route. Taking the Google Maps "quickest route" puts me on the highway for nearly 28 miles each way. The route I've chosen in the morning is pretty close to a 50/50 split between those boulevards and the highway, and adds 2-4 minutes to the drive. My afternoon route is only 6 miles on the highway, and typically saves time over the highway route, because NOBODY drives on the boulevards, and sections of the highway route turn into parking lots after about 3:30.

What I've found really matters to me is those alternate routes are quite a bit less stressful to drive. Over the last few years, I have grown to be all about the low-stress driving. Arriving at work at 6:54 relaxed is WAY better than arriving at 6:50 still pissed off at something someone did eight miles back. As a middle-aged fat guy with high blood pressure, I'll take that wherever I can get it.

Some stuff you just can't get around, like short trips or SoCal traffic. Those you manage the best you can. It's really a compromise based on what you value. I'll spend a few extra minutes for an easier drive, regardless of fuel savings, because there is little I hate more than the tension that comes with fighting morons in rush-hour traffic. Fuel savings are a nice bonus, and it's an interesting challenge to see how well I can do.

Suit the action to the word, the word to the action.
