    What mpg are you getting ? This was a 3 hour drive this morning 90% motorway . It's a 04 Toyota Corolla 1.4 d4d I bought about 2 weeks ago as a run around. And so far its the best thing on juice I owned in the past 12 years :D

    To be fair though, over a full tank I average between 5.2 - 5.4 l

    I get about 360km to a tank in the Scooby, and it doesn't bother me one bit.

    Honda Integra. Just over 50 Mpg in old money. To be fair that's motorway mileage, it gets about 35 Mpg overall mixed urban/rural.

    Rejoice in the awareness of feeling stupid, for that’s how you end up learning new things. If you’re not aware you’re stupid, you probably are.

    Jaysus my DC2 used to do about 500km to the tank with mixed driving.

    I had a heavy right foot and loved my vtec. So that would explain my situation with it lol

    That 9 mpg journey must have been fun though ehhh:eek::pac:

    I've gotten 1,000 miles to a tank out of my 99 b5 a4 1.9tdi a couple of times, driving like an absolute granny just to see could I do it.

    62 litre tank in it, filled to the brim. Roughly 72.5mpg.

    This was another time I got 967 miles to a tank

    My record is 55mpg across an entire tank (700 miles from 57 litre tank). Driving a 2.0 diesel 3 series. I reckon I could get 60+ if I slowed down a bit.

    The only proper way to find out is between fills and not the computer. I got 56 mph from a 1 litre Yaris petrol mostly motorway, that was checked after refilling.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,916 ✭✭✭ pudzey101


    Nice lads keep it up , interesting to know everyone mpg and what their getting from their vehicles :)

    I know I'm getting old when I'm worrying about mpg over speed and fun. But I suppose thats what my k3 1000 is for lol


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,916 ✭✭✭ pudzey101


    Also I reset the mpg clock before I started my journey

    What is that app? Thanks.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,423 ✭✭✭ funkey_monkey


    Low 40's with a mixture of city driving and some spirited motorway driving.

    Get mid 50's for sensible motorway driving.

    20yo Xsara 2.0HDI.

    Other poster is correct FK8 Civic Type R.

    9mpg was a track day morning 😂 can very easily get into the teens on the roads though. Current tank is over 12L/100km

    It's called Fuelio, I'm android, not sure if there is an Apple version. Can track maintenance costs too but I just use it for fuel. I do 1,000 miles per week and have been using the app for a couple of years.

    6l/100km

    Why are people using mpg? We're a metric country.
    The last bits of automotive imperialism were abolished in 2005 and some simpletons are still holding onto them.

    I'm 37 years old, I grew up using mpg and I prefer it. I could probably calculate either version in my head while you were still trying to work it out on a calculator :)

    I'm almost 29.

    l/100km is more logical.

    You have little to be worrying about if someone elses method of measuring their fuel consumption bothers you.

    Of course, we are driving in Km and Km/h and buying fuel in litres.


    People on the road longer than 11 or 12 years still use mpg as a yard(0.914m)stick of fuel economy. Doesn’t make them simpletons.
