I think your post was inappropriate. Maybe a political forum would be the place to insult people. I don't come here for that.Keith said:OK, guess we are going off track. I guess George hasn't "screwed things up" too much seeing all the people that are able to drop $35000-$45000 for new Acadias. Guess those tax cuts did help didn't they. I am sure GM is happy we all have more to spend on ourselves. The Democrats will not allow that if they get back in power again. They might get the gas prices down for a while after they run like pansies from Iraq but it wont last long.
Ok, my 2 cents. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
I totally agree with this. I've noticed it in almost every car I've had, that my 'winter' MPG is off about 8%-10% from the summer MPG. Also, on my recent trip down south, my wife's Yukon averaged about 1MPG better coming back than we did going, even though coming back I had a wicked leadfoot. I attribute this to the fact that when we left, I had gas from the northeast; coming back, I had a lot of gas from the south. maybe they put moonshine in it?Keith said:I know up here we get some stupid winter mix that is supposed to reduce smog. Reduces MPG too. Wonder if they factored in their equation that we will be burning more fuel to help reduce smog from the fuel we are burning. Anyway, I have noticed 1-3 MPGs less up here in the winter on my current car. Perhaps the winter mixes around the country are negatively affecting mileage. I believe we get the summer gas starting this month. Hopefully you Acadia owners will notice some improvement. Mine wont get here till June so I will be able to test it on the good stuff.
