This isn't going to be accurate, but whenever I fill up (and I always fill to full) the readout on the dash is about 460miles. So not at all close to those official figures!Can I ask how many miles to a tank you get and how many miles left you fill up as?
Factory figures are quoted at 680 but id like to know how close people actually come to this figure?
Im the same sunil,fun and frugal with the SD. Not near what is written regarding official mpg,but new and still running in and still better mpg than the petrol Ps i top up every monday regardlessWell, in some ways I'm glad I got the SD despite the difference in official figures vs. the reality. In my situation if I'd gone for the S I'd have been filling up every 5 days rather than twice every three weeks!
I tend to fill when it's at the 50mile mark - however, the value I gave you is from the dashboard (pressing the button on the left stem on the steering wheel) - this value does of course change as you drive (and will change further if your driving style changes) but after 1500 miles doing the usual routine driving I do this is pretty constant. Probably not very accurate mind you but gives a reasonable ball-park.so anyone doing more than 460 off a tank?
Sunster do you fill up when its almost empty or when it has 50 miles etc left on?
I think yours and my definition of frugal are slightly different Dave, but I get what you mean.Im the same sunil,fun and frugal with the SD. Not near what is written regarding official mpg,but new and still running in and still better mpg than the petrol Ps i top up every monday regardless
long as its costing me no more than £20 per week to run,then i say its frugal ;-)I think yours and my definition of frugal are slightly different Dave, but I get what you mean.
Not even 500 miles on her yet jeremey, i will start getting worried a few thousand miles in....plus that pic was local driving to next townBlimey I thought the diesel would be better. Quick I know but.my petrol Cooper is averaging 44 mixed driving and entertaining with naughty blasts ie 5000+ rpm to hear that fab warble and if I drive with care and saintly I'm getting 49. Uk mpg. That's not from the computerit is. 1 or 2 mpg more.optimistic. That's calculated fill to fill.
