Re: Accuracy of MPG readout

my multipla eleganza loves the motorways, even in limp mode it still comfortably does 70 mph... it does 80 mph really, but who would admit to breaking the law

Re: Accuracy of MPG readout

I owned Myrtle, a 2008 Eleganza 120 Multijet, from 7500 up to 125,500 miles. In that time the brim to brim measurements showed a consisistent 40-45 mpg, with the occaisional foray into the high thirties and the high forties. Basically, she used to average about 42mpg in daily driving. This was with mixed, town, A+B road and some motorway work, a real variety.

I once achieved 56mpg for a tankful whilst crawling to and from at 50mph from Kent to Devon (5 hours each way, never again...). I also did the same journey, covering the 512 miles at the full monty (and much more) giving a total travelling time of not much over seven and a half hours (don't tell the plod....) and I got under forty to the gallon.

But essentially, if anyone asks me what to expect as average mpg from a 120 Mutijet, I'd say 42mpg, cos I'd confidently expect to get that regularly from day to day driving. (that's brim to brim, not using the MPG feature....)

Exclamation Re: Accuracy of MPG readout

On this subject, I've done a little bit of a test with a full tank. In the images the readout says 16.7 km/l and when converted to miles, 39.2 MPG.
I used an online converter (below) and converted 16.7 km/l to MPG-US and MPG-UK. It truly is the US Gallon!
The car actually did 940km for 60l, which is 15.7 k/l or 44.3MPG-UK which isn't as good as the km readout says.

Re: Accuracy of MPG readout

I wish I'd read this thread before, especially the last post. Had I known I was getting 46mpg out of it I wouldn't be buying a new car and putting the multi up for sale.

Re: Accuracy of MPG readout

Just bought a Multipla JTD M 120, glad ive seen this as i was a bit concerned about my 37mpg readout. I got it so i had a more economical car than the Avantime which fitted everything in, and the Avi will do 37 at a push. So can hope for high forties on the cross country runs to see in-laws.
I expect the programmer just googled litres to gallons and had no idea there were different sized gallons!

Re: Accuracy of MPG readout

My computer is about 3mpg pessimistic, 42-45mpg is normal for Norfolk driving.
However, if you want to see 18mpg and an overheating engine, tow a heavy or high-drag trailer at 60mph. Towing needs to be done grievously slowly to avert fuel disaster.
