Get Out The Sawzall
So I filled up the car tonight for the first time. Overall I really like the Cobalt but I thought I would get way better gas mileage. I drive 23 miles to work one way and half of that trip is highway. I took it really easy on the car, plus it is brand new so I did not want to rip on it. I drove all week trying to get the best gas milage because I wanted to see if I could get what some of you guys are getting for mpg. I only got a little over 27 mpg. Don't get me wrong I am used to 10-12 MPG in my 86 K10 and the Cobalt will save me alot of money in the long run even at 27 mpg, but I am really dissapointed. Will it get better over time once the 2.2 gets broke in a little? I really hope so. I have been telling the guy I car pool with all week that I was going to get as good gas milage as his new Corolia, he gets 32-34 and he drives like an *******, I ride with him everyother week and he redlines allmost every shift and drives 80 down the highway.
