Keeping under 75mph on the motorway will push up the mpg. It drops off pretty quickly above that.

On B roads in ecco and drive it hangs onto 6 and 7 when 8 works. I find putting it into sport and using paddles to get up the gears works well. Did this between Moffat and Peebles and got 36mpg. This included about 5 miles of steep hill climb with long straights connected by sharp z bends as I left Moffat where I used dynamic mode.

My average is about 31mpg for the first 450miles.

Don't forget you can authorise the paddles for use in normal "D" on the gearbox selector to give more control of the gears.
It's in the vehicle settings menu.

Finding pretty much the same over the 550 miles so far in the 300, the old 25t portfolio only manages about 27mpg.

So I have had my car nearly a week now from new, and the avg mpg (I've done about 200 miles) is about 22MPG. Nearly done a whole tank of fuel.
Is that what the car is telling you or what you've worked out from the amount of fuel you've put in and the distance you've driven? The MPG/Miles to empty stats in the car aren't very accuracte to begin with - they need 'running in'.
Ah - Ok.

They filled it up before I picked it up, and I've done about 3/4 of the tank.

Will work it out properly at some point, thanks

I have a diesel and the fuel calculator in the car is fairly accurate for the journey made. However the tank to tank fill will always give the best overall mpg result. Yesterday 4 short journies, in town traffic, from cold first journey 22mpg,(cold engine) then 32 and finalising in 38 mpg(fully warmed up). Bear in mind that we live in a hellhole of a dump town with roads laid by the Romans and traffic lights on nearly every junction.

Hi. I also have a 200 rsport and normal town / local driving is around 25mpg. Longer journey on motorway 70ish mph will get mid 30mpg. Only do around 7000 miles a year so not overly worried. Most posts on here re fuel consumption appears to be for diesels.

The cat has now done a little over 30k. The best mpg was at 40 mph over 40 miles on a clear road and she returned 66.3 mpg. Since the latest software update which reset the eco history, the best is showing 58.7 on normal motorway usage.

I've got the 180 non-AWD. Typical commute is about 15 miles each way, occasional longer stretches. I'm currently hovering around 50mpg. My last tank was 55mpg as I had noticed my tyres were substantially under-inflated. Town traffic kills my fuel efficiency, around 30mpg. Motorway driving my best trip average has been 70mpg (I was recently about to hit 72-73mpg, but hit 2 very slow traffic lights near the end and, as the start/stop has conked out on my car too, they took the trip below 70... I was quite miffed). Mpg will be low whilst the engine is cold.
