Cool. @imaddicted2u Was that driving the Cabot trail ?
The best I've gotten is 6L/100km. About 39 mpg. in Highway driving.
Nova Scotia is such a cool province; a lot of great trails to explore, I was there once and would like to go again sometime.
And 31C weather in NS? Warm summer there.

That's awesome mileage. The little engine is so thrifty and high-tech plus paired with the IVT. I only average about 9.5 L/100KM when I am working (security guard sitting idling for 8 hours) -- that's driving the 10 KM there, mostly idling for 6-7 hours, then driving home.

But on highway, I get about 6 L/KM. Most of my driving is city/town though.

that great mpg..https://www.calculateme.com/gas-mileage/liters-per-100-km-to-us-mpg.
Convert Liters/100 km to American MPG

From
To
5.5 Liters per 100 km =
42.77 U.S. MPG
and if you go British gallon which I do believe is the size of the Canadian gallon..51.36mpg

This trip was from Halifax to Sydney, Nova Scotia. The weather is just getting really warmed up here. Usually our hottest weather is mid July into August, seems to get a little warmer every year. Some of the views and scenery here in Nova Scotia and on Cape Breton Island in particular, can't be beat. Here are some stock photos for those who may not have seen our island.

We usually use US gallons or liters to calc fuel economy but using imperial gallons sure makes the mileage look even better...lol.

The way the IVT uses a chain belt instead of a segmented steel belt to drive the pulleys, eeks out some better economy on the highway because the chain belt allows it to go deeper into the pulley giving a higher gear ratio than a steel belt in a CVT can get.
This article gives a good explanation of the advantage of using a chain belt.

Top gear ratio in the IVT is 0.385, while the M6 is 0.688.
Low gear ratio in the IVT is 2.68, while the M6 is 3.769

Speedometer Car White Tachometer Light

this is from a highway trip I took yesterday which would be the equivalent of 44.38 US mpg and if using the Canadian gallon it's 53.30 mpg

Speedometer Car White Tachometer Vehicle

this is my overall average for the last 1679.8 kilometers which is highway and town driving which is 39.87 US mpg and if using the Canadian gallon 47.88 mpg.
both pictures were taken at the same time and day which was yesterday.

my 2022 Ultimate Venue comes with the 17inch wheels and has 1984 kilometers on it at the time of the pictures and I live in a small town so in town driving really doesn't amount to as much as if I lived in a large city and I'm retired so there's no daily driving to and from work etc.

How fast were you driving on the highway? 100km or 110km> . I only see 6to 6.2l/100 lucky to see 5.x once in awhile if driving 100km. yesterday was 7.1-7.6.
My 5.5 L/100km was a mix of driving between 80-110 km/h. Most of it was on cruise control.
EDIT: Hyundai should add Average speed to the display.
I made a 110-mile highway trip today, with air conditioning blowing full blast. Averaged 45 mpg. But I don't drive very fast; probably averaged around 55 mph.

I was mostly going 90 Kilometers and using cruse control because the traffic was fairly heavy at times
and there were times where I went a lot faster during passing the slow stuff and my ultimate comes with the 17 inch wheels/tires so maybe that helps.

Yeah! Why do they rate it with volume per 100 distance? Why not some unit(s) per 1 (one) unit as in heart beats per minute, eye winks per minute, RPM, paces (steps) per minute, kilometers per liter, miles per gallon, etc? Just wondering. I think Europeans too rate their gas consumption with liters (or litres) per 100 kilometers.

it went that way when the metric system switch took place...we lost the price per gallon at the pumps and the measurement was liters so now the pumps price is so much per liter and the system changed to the number of liters that are used for 100 kilometers traveled..the lower number of liters used /100 kilometers is the "yard stick" [good pun] that the manufactures use to rate their vehicles "mpg" ratings...yes confusing! 馃槖

You mean 鈥渕eter stick鈥. Yeah, why didn鈥檛 the geniuses converted to kilometers per liter as in Canadian Dollars per liter on the gas pump?

Because if they reported liters per kilometer they would be talking about tiny numbers like 0.005 or 0.007 and it would be much more unwieldy.
