I also have 235/70/R16 Michelin ltx at2 on my 2009 outlander and have observed a fuel efficiency decrease of 1.5 kmpl post installation. However road noise is down to the bare minimum post installation.

Hi,

Whats your FE?

I am on Geolander 215/70 R16 and get 6.5-7 in peak hour traffic and 7.75-8 driving late nights.I drive really light foot- try to be in range of 50-70 at night.

But the ride is harsh on these tyres!!

My fuel efficiency is also between 6-7 on a tankful of gas. However I am sure it has declined as compared to what it was before as I was tracking the same.
The Michelin's are low noise and the ride quality and steering feel( was a bit hard earlier) is much better on these. But I am not too sure about the long term impact of this upsize on the suspension as it is an upsize beyond recommendation

Another happy user of 235/70/R16 LTX-AT2, 5 rallies and still strong tread but given this year's Raid route going for change tomorrow. Mitsubishi Outlander is amazing! I get 9-10 kmpl every tankful (but mine is mostly expressway usage). The worst I have seen is 6-5.5 during rallies. No complaints...many rallies to go
