Adventures with a 2008 Acura TL

Recommended Posts

Looks like fun TL adventures - I looked up the conversion 31mpg. It's rated 26mpg highway, did you drive only 50mph behind a truck? What gas?

Nope, I was going up to 110km/h and didn't do any particular hypermiling.  I was using Costco 91.

Also a family picture with some friends:

It's nearing the end of my ownership of this car as I am going to sell it to my friend once he sells his. Still, many great adventures with an awesome car.

Was snowing again over the weekend. It's the second weekend in a row it snowed. Still, the car drives like a champ with Michelin X-ice Xi3.

All the snow is gone haha. Just parked on the streets near Brentwood LRT this morning. Great car and a timeless design.

Lol it was never washed. Just rain.

Anyway, confirmed it's the last week with my TL. I will be back in my Accord next week. Lots of great memories with this car and it was 100% trouble-free.

Yep, my friend Chris' TL. He sold his TL last week to buy mine. And with that it's time to wrap out a great 7 months of adventures :)

That was the TL parked on my driveway this morning.

Final odometer while in my possession. I put 8560km on the car.

Back to my house with the TL, Chris and I swapped to the all-season tires. These are the all-season tires that came with the car (Michelin Primacy MXM4) from the previous owner, which had 7/32" on it (new is 8/32"). He mounted it on the rims that were on his previous TL, which he kept before selling it. He sold it with the winter rims, so these ones had TPMS sensors too.

 

Some fuel statistics:


Lifetime Fuel Consumed (L)    814.310
Lifetime Fuel Cost (CAD)    $933.82
Lifetime Kilometers Tracked    8560.9
Average Fuel Consumption (L/100km)    9.69
Average Fuel Cost Per Unit (CAD)    $1.158
Average Distance Per Tank (km)    372.2

The stats were not bad for a car of that generation, and 90% of those miles were put on throughout the winter. Other than that, I've spent only $20 in repairing the beads of the stock rims and the cost of paint for touching up the scratch.

Great car -- but back to the Accord!

Haha yeah I agree. Would be even nicer if he picked up some A-spec or Type-S rims lol.

We've met before!

(Also if you're wondering, it's a shadow on the right door of my Accord. It's not a discoloration.)

It's pretty decent until you get to the Accord. Filled up at 1/2 tank today, drove 450km and cost me $31 CAD at Shell. It also helps the gas is regular and Jason Kenney killed the carbon tax.
