Might be a silly question, but for those getting good MPG in the V6, are you guys using manual gear changes? Appreciate the better MPG will be cruising on a motorway, but around town I notice sometimes the auto sits in a lower gear than it seems to need.

Or am I just struggling to adjust to the auto?
Yep as UV Blue says, Eco mode and let the car do the rest. I think with 450 nM of torque you dont need to rev much to make progress.

This rainy morning on a 30 miles trip to my working place I had about 54 mpg, backing home it was about 38 mpg . My tank to tank average was about 42 mpg for the first 1800 miles. For the past 3000 miles the trip computer shows 45 mpg. Best mpg? 3.2 l/km, one mile trip, downhills in summer.

yeah, I've got 43-ish on a motorway run, I get the better mpg's when in 'ECO' mode - I let the car choose the best optimum revs vs gear and it does a better job than me! The car can feel a bit sluggish in this mode but when I want a quicker getaway I just use the paddle and drop it down and I'm away - over the hills and far away.... la la...la
Fair enough, I'll give Eco mode a bit more of a chance then. Thanks

I have achieved nearly 70mpg in the 180 RSport on a run but before I got the stop start to work all the time, when warmed up, I get 40-44 and before I used to get 34-37 on the same journeys.

Best I've had from the V6 is an indicated 43mpg, 100 mile motorway drive on a Sunday evening. Same weekend saw less than 23mpg hooning around in Wales.
23, you can’t of been trying hard enough, I managed to get mine down to 12 :shock:

:lol: Well, the 23 was an average including all the dull roads in between the good ones! I can't remember which stretch, was going between Bala and Ffestiniog, B4391I think, had brakes grumbling in the wet. Greta wouldn't approve 8-)

I'll have to try harder. In my defence, it was lashing down with rain all weekend. Racing driver excuses etc...
