On my 7-passenger Limited, I got anywhere from 15 to 23. The car does get better mileage after a few thousands of miles of break in.

Cool

I usually get 22.5 mpg in city driving in Chicago with the airconditioning on in summer. Highway 28.5 mpg at 70 mph on cruise Chicago to St.Louis and back on weekends regularly without airconditioning......and at speeds higher, I have seen it drop to about 25.5mpg on the highway. Stock 4EAT 60,000 miles.

Haven't driven it long enough to have a table of mileage yet, but on 3 tanks of gas:

24.6 avg. Mostly highway driving (I live kinda in the middle of nowhere, 50 miles to the nearest stop light). Driving easy, keeping RPMs reasonably low. A/C on. City mileage is bad. One trip into Santa Fe and my milage dropped into the 14-16 range while in town.

Based on this admittedly scarce data, it looks like the Tribeca gets good highway mileage and very poor city mileage. Using the proper gear and allowing the car to run easy seems to help enormously. I suspect that with a change in driving tactics, my mileage would drop significantly on the highway. Next time in Santa Fe, I'm going to experiment with different driving techniques and see if I can't improve city mileage some.

My First Tank: Car said 21.0mpg. Miles/fuel added said 20.8mpg. Mostly city driving- but where I live there are traffic lights only every mile- so it's easy driving.

Second tank. 'Becky said 22.2, but Miles/fuel added was 20.1. similar driving as first tank. A bit more traffic.

3rd and 4th tank were right at 21mpg (actual, not indicated). A mix of city/highway.
haven't tried anything but 91 octane yet.

At 21K we get around 19 - 20 mixed driving. Not much of any city.

The problem isn't how many miles you're getting to a tank... the problem is the size of the tank... it's tiny... nowhere near the segment average.

Dead on correct. But there is an actual advantage to the smaller fuel tank - you are carrying less weight which = slightly better fuel consumption. Thats a good thing, although counteracted by the inconvenience of more frequent stops to refuel.

FWIW.

a gallon of gasoline varies in weight based on density which is affected by temperature. A normal range is 5.8 - 6.5 lbs per gallon. I'd rather carry around 20-24 extra pounds and increase the range 80 -100 miles per tank

Matter of preference. The extra few miles in stops doesn't make much difference to me. If I'm on a long trip, I usually like to stop more often than a big tank allows anyway - just to stretch my legs a bit.

However, your point about the weight being a small factor is valid. That is why I used the term "slightly better" instead of saying significantly better or noticeably better.

So, my point is also valid. The advantage is actual, although slight.

By the way, having worked in the Petrochemcial Industry for over 30 years, there are some factual inconsistencies in your comments about gasoline, weight and density. But we'll save that technical discussion for another time.
