pjl56 said:I admit that I am babying the Pilot a bit as I complete the 500 mi. break-in period, but I am averaging 21.5 mpg through 2 tanks of fill-ups so far.
johnnyk said:I noticed that the low fuel warning light worked well this morning. Here in SoCal, even highway traffic is still stop and go during rush hour. The first tank of fuel yielded 330 miles about 17.3mpg. I tried my best step easy on the gas during this break-in period. Never took it above 60MPH. Hope the second tank will give better mileage like yours. Cheers, JK
dntsne1 said:Well remeber until the engine is broke in you will have variations in the mileage. I woudl say about 1500 miles you should see a steady rate on your mileage.
TopMomm said:I also like the external temp read-out...
pjl56 said:I've read elsewhere of folks complaining that the outside temp. read-out has been "off" by quite a bit (generally low). I haven't tracked this too close, but my experience has been that it's pretty accurate (I think).
Congrats on the 2-week Pilot birthday, Diane!
nhantcao said:I have seen people posted from 500, 600, 1000 and 1500 miles. What is the recommend, if you will, for the breakin miles?
What is the technical reason for keep the speed up to 60 mph and not over druing the breakin period?
pjl56 said:The Pilot manual itself says 600.
03pilot said:What happened to you pjl ? You actually checked the manual
Thanks for the 600 info though. I feel better that I don't have to worry keeping my speed in check for too long. Felt weird when everybody and their brother was overtaking here in SF. They must be thinking - what is this guy nuts - driving an SUV at or under 60 mph.
