We’ve been on the road for over two weeks, but we got home last night, and I’ll be getting back to work on my backlog. But before I do all that, a quick update on our new Travato.
After two weeks and two thousand miles living in Lance, Stef and I are getting to know him pretty well. Some things have worked out even better than we thought they would, and some are… well… still works in progress. Here’s a quick rundown.
First off, I’m hoping the mileage gets better. I know it’s only been two thousand miles, but the initial numbers are a little disappointing. Here’s what I mean:
According to the on-board computer, Lance’s lifetime average is 14.8 miles per gallon, and the vast majority of those miles are highway miles. That’s not awful, but it’s also not the mid-fifteen I was hoping for. Not only that, but the mileage I calculated at the pump was consistently 1mpg less than the on-board computer reports.
I did spend some time on this trip talking with other Travato owners, and I’m definitely on the lower end of the mileage scale.
