Re: The MPG Thread

Over my 12,700 miles... mine is 22mph (lol, I like to go fast)

Over the last 2,000 miles it has boosted up to 30-35mpg as I tend not to drive too much like a knob (I try, sometimes fail :P )

One thing that is concerning me though... I finally managed to get the blue and me tom tom to link up so I got the displays as the above pics show. Am I right in saying that my phone should connect too or is it just a matter of one of the other?

My phone is a Blackberry 9700 bold and will connect the blue and me but not when the tom tom is...

Re: The MPG Thread

Re: The MPG Thread

Well I got mine to 45mpg after fresh reset & about 50, but realistically with real-world driving and a full tank I get 33-37mpg.

Which I think is just fine, as my stepdad gets 38mpg with his Prius.

Re: The MPG Thread

32.3mpg so far and only done 132 miles . Very pleased with that having done so few miles thus far. Been creeping up gradually the past couple days so hoping it'll improve further when I get to 3000 miles driven.

Re: The MPG Thread

8900 Miles on mine now. I'm struggling to get it above 42mpg.

I drive to work every other day and it's 40 miles away on dual carriageway; 50mph for 8 miles then 70mph for 30 miles before going into town driving.

I have even tried doing less than 70mph to keep the revs below 3000rpm but this doesn't seem to help. I don't drive with my foot to the floor and dont brake too sharp either althogh I use the cruise control all the time (but i thought this is supposed to help with fuel economy) but i get up to speed first before resetting the cruise control otherwise the car speeds up that quick the mpg drops!

I am annoyed at the poor mpg from that advertised in the Fiat brochures because the driving I do, i would have expedted to be in the 50's at least!

Re: The MPG Thread

Just installed the ECO DRIVE on a USB stick. Will it work if i plug the USB stick in the glove box (do we have one in the glove box?) want to keep my iphone plugged in the main usb to be honest!

looking forward to seeing my ECO DRIVE ratings etc.

I seem to be averaging 32-38MPG.

When driving the IC is normally around 57 though....!!

Re: The MPG Thread

4900 miles 35mpg average and i don't hang about.

this week I have slightly changed my driving style so i change to the highest usable gear if i am not accelerating and change down if i need to accelerate and with this little change i am up to 40MPG.

Using start/stop does help a lot so don't disable it. I find the start/stop is only hopeless if it is under 2 degrees. Although my 40mpg figure rarely saw start and stop as i never really needed to stop much.
