I have NEVER seen anything close to 30 mpg’s! Best I’ve ever done is like 25.8! But I have had an IPF performance time installed since new...I think well drive for many more years.. so 200K probably so.
I received email that Vandenberg Air Force Base was launching NROL-82
Gassed up and hit the highway. I had 2.5 hrs before launch. so I tried to stay at 80 MPH as much as I could. I drove as far as I could- with 5 min to launch. I got off highway and parked.
Vehicle showed 27.8 MPG.
For return I reset MPG,25, and 50 mile range.
this is what it showed nearing 100,000.

Mine is FWD.FWD or AWD? Ours is AWD.
I have changed one O2 sensor a couple years back. Still on factory plugs, but only at 75k miles.

AWD vs FWD along with the aero differences may explain the MPG differences. Or I just drive like a Jackass.Mine is FWD.
Someone said the AWD- require the engine cradle to be loosened?
I wonder if its easier to do what I did... replace all the suspension parts to get easier access?
I also changed all the plugs when I did this work.
Front three are super easy from the top.Is there any trick to changing plugs in these? I have not taken a close look to see how buried the rear plugs are and not sure if things need to be removed.
I got this in our 2015 Equinox on a trip mostly +70 MPH and it wasn't even broken in yet. . .How the heck do you avg 30 mpg????

That's a shame! I guess it's a consequence of the design of the engine ... and it's not like you're changing spark plugs very often, but any time you can do maintenance with the least bit of perturbation, that's the way you want to do it (IMO). Even just bending those dried-up electrical wires ... I wonder how often that results in electrical issues later on?the intake does need to come off.
