Has anyone tried anything to improve miliage? I just bought a 2010 AWD with a 2.4 in it. I was wondering if anyone has tried a K&N or maybe a tune(if there are any avalable)? I haev been getting between 28-31 with mostly highway. I know thats good but more is always better lol....

I put a k&n air filter but that's it. I can't tell you if fuel mileage was improved but I really didn't keep track!

Default Mpg

We just got back from a day trip about 250-300 miles only got 22-23 mpg. Ours is a fwd 4cyl. thought it would get better. Went from a Pacifica to this for better mpg.

What kind of mileage were you seeing with the Pacifica? Is your Equinox brand new? The seem to take a few thousand miles before they get broken in to show you the mileage you would like to see.

It's 2011 with 40K we bought it in August. The Pacifica got 24 on the highway. Was trying to run 75-80 mph.

Ahh yes. You would see a vast improvement if you went the posted speed limit or around 65 mph. I think it's a conspiracy Manufacturer/The law. lol jk


Some say the i4 get's awesome fuel mileage and it achieves what it says on the sticker 26-32 and other's say that there is a fat chance of that happening.
