Default Fuel consumption

Hi all, I have a 2008 cx 7, I love it, but it does use a lot of fuel, is there a way to get the consumption down, either by tuning, an add-on, driving habits, do I drive with traction control on or off, TIA.

What kind of fuel consumption are you currently getting on the highway?

FWIW; regardless of the setting, your traction control will not affect your fuel economy.

How many litres per 100kms are you getting?
Or
Miles per Gallon.
