    Brand new 2014 Hatch doing the break in

    Hey Guys.. I'm currently still breaking in my car, only at 133 miles.. I've put on 71 miles and my car has already used up over a quarter of a tank!? I understand they are not a prius.. Also, I'm not driving too hard, I thought that at first as well.. I'm currently babying her pretty good. Is this normal for a new motor!? I've only bought old jeeps to tear apart! Thanks!

    Brand new 2014 Hatch doing the break in

    Sorry.. My oils solid.. Gas is what I'm talking about.. lol and I'm used to cars destroying gas from all my jeeps, but this is a lot! 71 miles and almost half a tank!? Unless those tricky bastards at the deAler only filled it up barely to full..

    Yeah. The first couple tanks will have reasonably low mileage. Once complete the break in process you'll notice an increase or a stable number in the mpg. I current have a little over 3K on my car and two oils changes into it and I'm consistent around 22+ and i drive a mainly city.

    Like the Man in the bathroom stall said to the man waiting.... "Give it time baby... Give it time"

    Yep.......my MPG's really popped up after 1000 miles or so, maybe a bit more. Suburb Romping now 23 MPG or so. Easy Freeway I can get 28 MPG. I'm around 4000 miles or so.

    Okay! Awesome! Thanks.. I figured as much. I was hoping, I was like ah ****., I went from my jeep, the same thing!? Oh well.. Haha but okay, cool. I have an hour commute to work in the summer, so I'll rack up the miles quick..

    When new, mine did the same for the 1st 100 miles, then continued to get better. I get about 24 mpg around town @ 4000 miles.

    Where did you find a '14 hatch new? I looked all over Houston and no one had them here. We're very happy selling me a '15 though so I'm still happy. Still love the idea of having a hatch though.

    Hard work, and lots of looking.. I was sitting on the fence about a new car.. Then noticed over a weeks period EVERY hatch in nj was sold... So next one to pop up.. Ran over and bought.. And as of still, last one I've seen. There's three listed locally that have all been sold.. So it's potential I bought the last one in nj.. Haha auto trader has a couple up here, but I called the dealers, and they don't have it..

    Nice find. There were 2 2014s hatches left when I went to grab mine last month.
