Re: Fuel consumption
I have a 3.0ltr Sportronic....
I get 21-25 mpg back an forth to work on at an average speed of between 20 to 30 mph. This is on 2 stretches of 60mph road, a 40mph and then finally a 50mph. Journey time is about 20 minutes.
I'm quite impressed with that especially as there are plenty of stops and starts along the way due to school runs, roundabouts and traffic lights.
On the motorway, cruising at between 70 and 80 mph I can easily get between 30 and 32mpg on a nice run.
If I throw her in to sport mode and dabble with the semi auto box and slam my foot to the floor my MPG will fall to about 15 to 17 mpg. But WOW, what a way to burn that petrol !!!
I have to point out however, that I have only managed to acheive these figures since I installed a brand new MAF sensor. And for a measley £80 delivered, you can't go wrong. Especially as it unleashed the full power of the car. (my old one was knackered and was holding the car back in performance and economy !)
