I am only getting around 33mpg atm. I rarely use eco mode but also rarely put my foot down. I used to get that sort of mpg on my old mk9 so a little disappointed. Wondered what figures others were getting.
You need to calc manually and not trust the computer to see how bad your really doing. Stop/start traffic will kill any cars mpg irrespective.
Fill to first click(note mileage) then do your normal driving until 2/3 empty then fill to first click. Note mileage again and litres added. Divide litres by 4.546 and with miles traveled between fill ups divide to get true mpg. Sit down and weep.
I calculate as described earlier, and I have averaged 41.6 mpg over 23k miles. My best result was 50.1 mpg over 387 miles and my worst 36.1. It really does depend on traffic and average speed - long motorway journeys are best.
My 1.8 mk8 from new averaged 40mpg. I did get 52 once and high 40’s in a motorway cruise was the usual result. But around town and down to the 30’s. I would hope your newer design 1.5 will bring better returns once it’s run in.
I get between 33 & 35mpg. The shortish trip to the gym on week days kills the average, but I would get around 35 mpg otherwise. Generally gentle acceleration and using speed limiter and cruise to the max - no eco use though.
I too was rather disappointed with the miles per gallon when I first started driving it. Now I've done some long runs and got 45+MPG I'm content it's as it should be. When you consider the performance of the engine, it's actually pretty good MPG, and the fact that it's CVT or 'Auto'.
Auto's used to have far less MPG than manuals, not so much now. I think CVT's close the gap even further.
Hit the 3000 mile mark and the car is reporting an average 40.7 mpg.
I do mostly urban driving - which was coming up as approx 37 mpg. More recently, I have made several 2-2:30 hour motorway trips which has pushed up the average figure reported by the car up a fair bit.
I just wondered if anyone had a feature or two that remains a standout after owning for a while?
I've had mine for nearly a year, and for me it's the excellent CVT transmission, brake hold and Low-Speed Follow (LSF).
The CVT is just fantastic in every driving situation. I've driven a Nissan...
Now that we've had several cold/frosty mornings so far this winter, I've noticed that in comparison to any other car I've owned, the condensation inside the 10G seems extreme when attempting to demist the windscreen.
Condensation increasingly builds up on the drivers instrument panel (on the...
Upgraded OE 11 / 10 speaker system. How is it?
Just a few quick questions around the OE sound systems in 10G and 9G as comparison.
Did anybody had a chance to compare standard (is it 8 speakers system?) to upgraded OE 11 / 10 (10 is the upgraded version for saloon / sedan /...
I've only had my 2019 SR for about 7 weeks now, but I'm almost at the point where it will have to go. Why? Because the seats are giving me backache. It seems to take about 10 minutes for it to start, and continues until a couple of hours after I get out of the car.
I've tried a lumbar pillow...
Has anyone else got this problem with the rear light housing? Since the cold weather it won't go away. Seems like condensation so does that mean it's not sealed properly? It's the same on both sides at the rear of the car.
