My xB2 also have less than 5K, and I switched to synthetic at 1050 miles on the odometer.ganderson08 said:that great! What mileage did you switch over to synthetic oil? My mpg is at like 22, and i have less than 5000 miles on my super white and want to switch.
I have that intake for my 2004 Hyundai Elantra. That's the one with two tubes right (tube within a tube). I love it!kingburger said:nice! i'm currently on 25.9 with just the weaponr sw intake.
The intake changes are not what caused the MPG drop. Your foot is responsible for that !Sovereign said:after removing the snorkel and adding the k&n drop in filter, i got 17.6 at the last fillup. i was a little surprised, but not complaining i just like the sound it makes when i hit the go switch
I just got my 09 xB last week--it was a left over auto show car the dealer had so I got it at a steal. I had him change the oil (only 222 miles) because the car was on the lot more than 6 months and I didn't want to drive it home the 800 miles on old oil. I also have an 02 Hyundai Elantra GT and I have used nothing but synthetic oil since day 1 and have had great results, especially mpg. You can go longer on oil changes to. I have never had a drop of oil leakage with it but just recently noticed a small wet spot around one screw on the valve cover--oh,and I have 132,000 miles on it! I plan to use synthetic in the xB for ever too. One thing they say is to never change oils more than one grade if using for a long time. I.E. going from synthetic to semi-synthetic is ok but not to regular oil, and vice versa, going from regular to semi is ok, but not reg to full synthetic...the possibility of leakage is greater. Also there are some new oils for cars with over 75k on them which they say if you use that oil don't ever switch over to a synthetic or synthetic blend or you will develop leakage like never before.

it is recommended to change mobil 1 synthetic every 10k. if you were concerned about price, what did you hope to gain by switching back?I changed my oil at 3000 miles to synthetic oil mobil 1 to be exact but did not notice any improvement in mileage after 5000 miles i switched back to regular oil because of price should i have waited longer before switching back?
I just kind of got 2009 xB and I am baffled with MPG (23MPG the whole way does not change if I drive on highways or not) is there anything else that would help with MPG?
