I have a 2006 V6 SEL with 7000 miles on it.
I get 22 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. The highway mileage is excellent. I am not a conservative driver by any means either. I judge my mileage by doing the math and not the on board computer. The MPG on the computer seems off but I will say the range of miles remaining is very accurate. I have pushed it a couple times with an empty tank using the miles remaining information and have not run out of gas. This is even when getting down to just 3 or 4 miles remaining.
It is success stories like yours that convince me that something is definitely "wrong" with our 13 mpg city for our V6 SEL AWD. We are both very conservative drivers, the air conditioner has not been on, obviously, and the Delmarva Peninsula is as flat as a fritter. The tire pressure is correct at 33 psi but soon to be increased to 36 psi. If other V6 SELs can deliver mileage like yours, then ours should too. I am not going to be happy until it can be made to deliver the EPA estimate of 19 city, 26 highway. Boz, unhappy in Salisbury (Smallsberry), MD.
