- In your face VAG owners…
Not wanting to piss on your chips or anything, but….
bit blurry, but you get the idea.
130bhp VAG. Admittedly, that high is unusual, but I see 70mpg fairly often on the trip computer if the journey is straight forward a-roads/motorways with little traffic, even though it’s now on 233k miles.Posted 4 years agosamuriMember
Our company pool cars can be coaxed to read 100mpg+. They’re all Toyota hybrids.
Of course, they’ve not got 140bhp.
If I was to hazard a guess, I’d say when you put your foot down they use 6 bhp making a lot of noise and the other 3.5bhp making the car go forwards. But they’re good on petrol.Posted 4 years agothegreatapeMember
Easy enough to fake it anyway. We had a Sgt who used to reset the fuel consumption in the Outlander after his day shift so he could check the economy the next morning and have a dig at whoever was driving on the backshift. So 15 mins before going home time we would drive up a hill, reset the computer, then roll down again in neutral so it was left with an average of 99mpg. Simples.Posted 4 years ago
10k miles of details! **** that, fill it up on empty then fill it up again on empty. Do the math, that’ll do,
One tank isn’t accurate enough. I’ve got 45,000 miles worth of records on my phone for our Focus plus less on the two motorbikes. You can see how fuel use changes when your driving changes, and with the seasons. I know, for instance, that my right foot is more economical than the cruise control as there was a change when I had it fitted (not my foot, the cruise!) I’m about to see if branded fuel is better than supermarket fuel, too.Posted 4 years ago
If you like I can take our petrol Focus out and take a pic of better fuel consumption than the 2 in this thread. It’s not hard to max it out to 99mpg if I like 🙂
