I did a 180 mile trip yesterday. I was still in the running-in phase (between 300 and 600 miles), so I decided that I would try a bit of hypermiling (i.e. maximise your fuel economy) as an experiment.

I had reset the average fuel consumption after filling up with petrol on the previous night. After the 12 mile drive home, I had a predicted range of 280 miles left in the tank. Yesterday, after I had driven a further 50 miles, the predicted range had INCREASED to 300 miles!

The trip was mostly 50, 60 and 70 zones, so I used the cruise control to match the speed limit. I didn't go crazy though - I still had the air conditioning on, while I listened to music and the sat-nav guided me to my destination!

By the end of my trip, my fuel economy figure was 26.1 mpg! Given that this included the drive home the previous night (where I wasn't thinking about fuel consumption) and about 10 minutes stuck in slow moving traffic, then I reckon I could have cracked 27 mpg.

Of course, during my trip I hit the 600 mile mark, so I'm now in the high rev phase of the running-in process. Needless to say, my fuel economy has now dropped below 20 mpg!

I'm now finding it impossible not to be tempted to have rapid blasts of acceleration as I'm sitting in a lower gear, in the power band, ALL THE TIME!

Much of my journey to work along the M3 is now covered by a SPECS enforced 50mph limit so its averaging 23-24mpg which, considering the performance available, is pretty damn good and about the same at my mate gets from his S2k. After my last fill up the range was showing as 340+ miles!

When giving it beans the best solution is to turn off your mpg brain then you can't worry about it!

0960 121 09.0 13.5
1161 201 15.6 12.9
1330 169 11.5 14.6
1586 256 13.2 19.4
1841 255 12.4 20.6
2083 242 12.8 18.9
2266 183 11.5 16.0
2477 211 11.6 18.2
2723 246 13.9 17.6
2897 174 11.4 15.2



So, best I got was just under 22mpg when I first picked up the car with sub 3500 revs. The low figures (12,13,14mpg) was again during the running in period when revs had to be kept high.

In summary around town I'm getting 16mpg, longer runs at 80-90 mph, 20-21 mpg. Average is 17mpg, or 18mpg if I exclude the running in period.

This is about the same as my M3 and a bit less than my EVO
WOW! lol

I did 20 miles while flashing....scary, in France on my first trip to Le Mans in it

I'm still getting 4.3 miles to litre whatever that means
6km/L is very good or easier said the factory stated one.

I managed 9.5km/L /28mpg? on 1000 kms.?

By sticking to the Motorway speed limits I managed 395miles from my tank

By not-sticking to the Motorway speed limits I got 200miles from my tank

By trying to impress all and sundry I managed to get an average of 15mpg

This car is a fantastic all-round everyday car that I have covered 17k in just over a year and it still doesn't feel like I over-use...amazing

Now stop worring about fuel, tyres and other consumables, just go out and thrash the pants off the beast.....

My friend is on the verge of selling his unfortunately due to fuel cost's not really an "around town" car i guess.

You only live once, it's not a practise.

10 years time we'll probably all be trying to figure out how to 240 volt a Nissan Leaf
