Driving Mode & Economy

Post by BootneckShuffle » Tue Jul 09, 2019 9:56 pm

Hi guys,

Question reference the above

Been using Comfort Mode since getting the car back end of March, D180 SE

First few months I’m getting 400 miles to the tank, mostly short journeys door to door

Recently, Tank Range now dropping to 350 - 320 even, haven’t changed anything, driving mode and style still the same, not using AC constantly etc, high end 90’s in Eco Data blah blah blah

Whats wrong? Why am I losing Tank Range? Is comfort mode the best? Obviously there’s ECO mode but think that’s a bit pants.

Mid 20s for a day or 2

Now back down to 16 and 17?

Surely not

Nothing simpler than the particulate filter ... continuous regeneration ...

Not going to cause a huge amount of an increase, but with the AC off it’s still apparently on according to JLR it cannot be fully turned off. Had the same issue with the Evoques.

Anyway that’s poor economy my D180 it brilliant in fuel one thing I cannot fault. I’d take it to dealers
Current R-Dynamic D180 S with a few extras successfully rejected.

On order:
D275 R-Dynamic HSE, Firenze Red, Heated Steering Wheel (a must after missing it out on the old car) Dynamic Pack, Black Roof, Privacy Glass.

Have you had any problems with your filter or regeneration during your short journeys?

BTW check tyre pressure.

Pressure dropping from 2.4 to 2.1 won't alarm the system but will affect MPG. Maybe not that much but still it could be one of the factors.

Hi guys, interesting points

Not checked the tyre pressures for a month or two actually so worth a check.

Interesting point about the ac too, mad that.

No problems whatsoever with regeneration or filter, no warnings nothing like that

Tyre pressures all spot on

New app says no DPF issues
