    We run the V6 here in the UK and get appx 18 mpg overall [UK gallon is
    larger than a US].
    We have been griping at Hyundai for a while and they have an extensive test
    to ascertain the true mpg as vehicle mpg readout is in US gallons.
    ANYWAY the thing gets the the Korean modification next week ,this
    New instruments,speedometer etc
    New gearbox drive to above,
    Engine management system re-mapping

    Apparently we are the third vehicle in the UK to get this mod.

    Will advise group if it works or not!!!!!!!!!

  2. Yes, by all means, keep us informed. I have a Tucson that is delivering
    very poor mileage and have not gotten good advice on how to correct (from
    two dealers).

    When we purchased our new Hyundai a few months ago, we actually were
    primarily interested in the Tuscon -- until we read on this newsgroup
    the stories from owners of incredibly poor gas mileage, seemingly even
    worse than the larger Santa Fe. So we took home an '06 Sonata V6
    instead. (We're satisfied with the gas mileage on the Sonata, which has
    ranged from a low of just over 22 mpg to a high of just under 30 mpg;
    perfectly reasonable for a six-cylinder car of this size.)

    Hyundai really needs to do something about the Tuscon's fuel
    consumption, reports have it pegged even lower than what we used to get
    with our ancient AMC Eagle wagon. Maybe they should apply this "Korean
    modification" across the board!

    In my Tucson, with a v6, I average 23 miles a gallon, with a low of
    about 20 and a high of 28.
