  1. Hyundai/Kia admit to overstating MPGs on Most models

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    20,000 miles driven at 37 mpg...a little over 540 gal. Same miles at 40 mpg...500 gal. A difference of 40 gallons. I am being offered $80+ dollars. When you throw in the 15%, it comes out to less than $2/gal. on the difference. Anybody else see a problem here? Please feel free to correct me...
  2. Hyundai/Kia admit to overstating MPGs on Most models

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    I noticed the Elantra was rated at 38 with the Veloster at 37mpg. Hyundai points out that the Veloster has direct injection which helps fuel consumption. If the Elantra has a larger engine, more horsepower and no direct injection, how does it get better mpg? Would the Veloster have been...
  3. OFFICIAL: 6 Speed Manual Discussion Thread

    Hyundai Veloster Engine and Transmission
    6th gear (used to be called overdrive) turns the engine at lower rpms than 5th (etc). When the engine is turning fewer rpms, you use less gas so you get better mileage. The tradeoff is that you have less torque, so you may have problems accelerating or getting uphill in 6th.
  4. Velo turbo efficiency

    Hyundai Veloster Engine and Transmission
    The problem with making an engine more powerful is the gas to air ratio. You can increase the amount of gas, but if you don't increase the amount of air at the same time, it won't do any good. A turbo blows more air in the engine so you can increase the amount of gas and get more horsepower...

    Hyundai Veloster DIY Tips and Tricks
    Can you fit the top of the air box over the cone filter? Sounds stupid, but it would give you the cold air from the fender...
  6. Custom cai

    Hyundai Veloster Intake and Exhaust
    I have an AEM filter and have been thinking about doing this too. But your picture made me wonder if a 2.5 pipe could be fitted from the end of the filter box to the fender. I know there is already one there, but it is smaller and some say baffled. Since you have cut into this area and are...
  7. 4th on motor trend comparison and thought about MPG

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    FOURTH PLACE: Hyundai Veloster Wins on quirkiness hands-down, and is practical to boot, but the body makes promises the chassis can't keep. I have heard this quote over and over by reviewers. I really don't like it. Are they saying the car shouldn't look so good? Would it have won if it...
  8. 4th on motor trend comparison and thought about MPG

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    I owned a TC several years and traded it mostly because of poor MPG.
  9. One unhappy customer - worst paint job ever

    Hyundai Veloster Exterior and Lighting
    If you have dents in your chrome, its not the paints fault, something hit your car and caused the damage. I know you're upset to have a brand new car messed up, but you got behind some vehicle that kicked up something that damaged the paint. It doesn't mean you're a bad driver or Hyundai has...
  10. thrut or fake Veloster Intake Supercharger Turbo Performance

    Hyundai Veloster Engine and Transmission
    In order to have warranty voided, there has to be a connection between the mod and the failure.
  11. No mods air intake

    Hyundai Veloster Intake and Exhaust
    Is the filter attached (bolted down)? I have an AEM on the shelf and have thought about doing this, but am concerned about rattles or even damage to the filter if its just resting on something.
  12. Stock AirBox Modification

    Hyundai Veloster Engine and Transmission
    Please note on the dyno pics provided on page 2 that the car tested has a turbo. Since a turbo is all about getting more air in the engine, you will get bigger results if you cause less resistance in the intake. I don't think the results will be as dramatic with a NA engine. Adding cold air...
  13. Stock AirBox Modification

    Hyundai Veloster Engine and Transmission
    If the box is ported to colder outside air from the fender, you just eliminated that and are sucking in hot air from the engine bay. That would cost some power and mpg, but I'm sure it sounds better. Who knows, it might even run better... Some owners take the noise cover off the top of the...
  14. The Future of the Veloster Touch Screen | Examples of what to Expect

    Hyundai Veloster Audio and Electronics
    Looks good! Don't know if you are wanting suggestions, but if you do, I have one. I like to watch GPS, but also like XM info (name of song, group, etc) GPS has a split screen function...can you set it up so the GPS and XM info show on split screens?
  15. Goodbye Hyundai. Sorry it didn't work out.

    Hyundai Veloster General Discussion
    3 months ago my dealer told me the car I wanted would be waiting for me and if I didn't buy it, they would pay for my gas and dinner. They had the car driven in from 400 miles away (Wichita). Its a shame more dealers don't approach sales this way...they would get more sales and more repeat...

  17. Driving Manual Tips and Tricks

    Hyundai Veloster Engine and Transmission
    I've been driving manuals about 40 years. Learned on a new 240Z and was scared to death. I wanted to comment on the hand brake on hills. I wouldn't do it on any hill, but if you are stopped on a really steep hill and the driver behind you gets right on your bumper, it helps a lot. I advise...
  18. Would extensions help soot problem?

    Hyundai Veloster Engine and Transmission
    Sure would be a nice ending to all this if we could just say it will get better with age. I'll have 5k on mine next week...time for 2nd oil change and then a 1k trip to the inlaws in Ks for Christmas. That will be a good check for me to see if its gotten better. (Put on a catch can 2k ago) I...

    Lee Ridefar You are probably right, but you never know till you try. I don't have the pieces to make it work, but was hoping someone else would and could give it a try. scottxkillyou My idea is silly? Did you take the time to look at the turbo spy shots. Looks like they have done exactly...
  20. Would extensions help soot problem?

    Hyundai Veloster Engine and Transmission
    You guys are missing the point of this post. Yes, there will be soot in an exhaust pipe (duh) and yes the Veloster exhaust design is going to spew that exhaust on the "chrome" part. And yes, you can clean it every 15 minutes if you want and it will look fine. I am asking the question...would...
