Yet another MPG post

Post by BootneckShuffle » Mon Jan 13, 2020 3:58 pm

Hi all, yes it’s another fuel economy/MPG post

Here’s the deal

Velar MY19 RDSE 180
5k miles
Door to door trips
Comfort Driving Mode
330 to a tank

Anyone else getting similar figures with similar situation? My MPG has steadily dropped and dealership says nothing wrong.

D240 HSE

Short commutes 40 to 43 MPG maybe 38 maybe 44-45 (15miles ish) have seen 50 just because I could (setting off with warm engine) always less when setting off from cold and a short run. Long run, last was 194 miles none stop, motorway virtually all way average 68mph 3hours returned 44.1mpg , 14K on the clock not seen any change from about 5K onwards, I'm happy with that, son's Fiesta 995cc turbo ST line does 50-53 on the same long journey, on cost of fuel it's not a big difference, say £6, I'd rather ride in the Velar against "saving" that.
Against other running costs mpg is really not worth a lot of fuss IMHO but is always fun to calculate and compare and the app does the calculation anyway.
It's a far cry from the 3.5L V8 Petrol Range Rovers I have owned in the distant past though.

Edited to say Comfort Mode and BP Premium Grade Fuel

Interesting figures there thanks.

Something up with mine, has to be. Dealership reckon there’s no faults but I was getting 400 to the tank when brand new, now struggling to get 300-330, all in comfort mode. Even checked that Eco Mode function, scoring late 90s every time.

D300 V6 with 35k on the clock from September 2017.

Here are two screen shots. The first is in southern Scotland, north of Newcastle around Berwick-upon-Tweed, A1. British roads, obeying the speed limits and enduring the convoys on the single carriageway behind a Nissan Micra. Managed 44mpg.

The second is a loooong sprint from Munich to Strasbourg. Average speed across 3.5hrs of continuous driving was almost 70mph. At times we were whizzing along at 130mph on the unrestricted sections of autobahn. Fully laden with all of our holiday junk and three adults. Average was almost 31mpg.

On very short journeys, cold engine we typically manage about 32 / 33 mpg. No traffic jams here though. Stop-Start only needed on the little bridge over the River Tweed which is single file and managed by traffic lights!

Never use Eco mode. Mostly comfort and occasionally dynamic. Always Shell V-Power diesel. Can’t see the point of Eco, it’s not why we paid the premium for the D300 V6 experience. The only time I have used it in earnest was when we were balancing the need for speed with the need for fuel economy as we tried to eek out the last drops in our tank so we could make the 7:55pm P&O Spirit of France ferry out of Calais. Made sense because we never speed on the French Autoroute, especially near Calais. French traffic cops can be brutal. Our car arrived at the port with 50 miles left in her tank - filled up in Dover at the top of the Jubilee Way at the Shell station there. Nice cashier, reminded me that Britain ain’t so bad with a bit of banter.

Regards, Arianne

I hasten to add she drives like she is piloting the popemobile down a crowd lined street

At least at the weekend when I can get out of my diesel A4 I can have a bit of fun in the Velar whilst still returning an average 25mpg overall
