You can't blame Trudeau for having the IQ of a toilet seat, he was born that way. I blame the idiots who voted Liberal

Since you are an Murican living in Canada, there is no surprise you see the jackasses. They like feed of your personality. I personally did not vote for Trudeau for his interest in legalization of pot, but he is without question, a far better human being and country leader than Trump any day . He does not run to twitter, every time he does not get his own way or someone offends him, like a little 6 year old, saying **** like "i know you are but what am I". He does not constantly lie and make up ****, to then later have to re-cant it. He is a disgrace to democracy and if the US was not already the disgrace among the world, they would certainly be now. The US is hated by 90% of the real world. Leave North America, **** go to Mexico even, ask the citizens of those countries, which country they prefer, 99-1 will say Canada. Except for maybe Russia, because they know they own your country and your leader.

Really the legalization of Pot, is really the best attempt you have to discredit Trudeau? You do realize that it is legal in most forward thinking countries, many states have moved legalize it. So rather than piece meal it like the US, he country went the smart way and legalized in one fell swoop. Sounds pretty fucking smart to me. Then again talking smart to you, is probably over your head. Sorry our future leading country and its leader are too progressive for the likes of you.

You are more than welcome to move back to the USA, no one here likely wants you anyways.

I will now take my hurt feelings to the hospital where I can get stitched up and not have to decide whether it is groceries or medical care this month.

No he can go home, no one here really wants him here. I can be sure he hides his identity to try and pretend to fit in.

and what are your educational qualifications?? Burger flipper at McDonalds? I can be sure, on his education basis alone, that his IQ is far higher than yours, and without question of that of Trump. Trump the guy who's dad had to paid for him to even make it through school, and has bankrupted 8 Companies.

Rather vote a Liberal than a Conservative Hack, who thinks cutting all social services is a good way to balance the budget, cut until we have nothing left. Sell off country and provincial assets til their all gone. Hey we made $20 Billion today, but lost $300 billion over the next 5 years.

Back to the OP's question. Unless you are driving with a real heavy foot or doing an excessive amount of idling, you should be doing better than those numbers. Like 22-23+. Perhaps the engine air cleaner filter needs to be changed? Also, keep a close eye out for oil consumption. If yours is dealing with the piston ring issue, that can also reduce fuel economy. There is some extended warranty coverage for this, if it is eating oil, bring it to a GM dealer stat.

If your car had AWD it would have an AWD badge on the back, and is I recall, a sticker in the engine compartment. My AWD gets 22-23mpg with a lot of short trips and city driving.

I abandoned this thread since it had become a cesspool of politics. Lo and behold I came back to @Ralphalph coming back around to the issue. I've verified that it is indeed FWD. Driving very conservative and adjusting to the car we have the mpg showing at around 20mpg mostly city driving. Oil level and air filter seem fine. Anyone have any thoughts on using a premium oil in the car like AmsOil? I don't know what's in there now but I would like to get the good stuff in there. I stopped using it in my older cars since it just leaked out through bad seals, drain plug, etc. I'm wondering if people have something they've had good success with. If there is crappy, cheap oil in there now and high quality oil could help some I'd imagine.

Gosh, I don't even know where to start here, if you don't know what oil is in your present car and you think your previous car may have had oil leaking from the drain plug, my only advice is to be first in line for the first truly autonomous car.
