mpg

Post by picassodad » 05 Oct 2018, 16:10

This is a difficult one as it all hangs on driving style, but what would be the real world mpg for an 03 plate 1.8 litre dohc ( EW7J4 6FZ ) 1749cc petrol picasso being driven with economy in mind please. Its done about 92 k miles and seems to use no oil and in reasonably good condition/state of tune etc..

The speedo mpg readout is meaningless, but the average mpg more informative.

I'd expect 32-38mpg out of that. My Grand Picasso 1.8 petrol, same engine, averaged 34.4mpg over the 4500 miles we did in it. Max of 42.4mpg on a 260 mile motorway run, min of 26.1 one week solely in town.

should have got the 1.6 model dooh.......stuck with this one now so lad will have to develop a light right foot.

will report back when car fully serviced and some more miles done, It seems better mpg when speed held at 60 ish......but the hills kill the mpg, unless going down hill when mpg is fantastic, 700mpg !!? as said mpg reading meaningless unless its the average one, creative technology hah!!

That's because you have the instantaneous consumption data showing - jut toggle the display by pressing the end of the windscreen wiper stalk to cycle through the Trip Computer display options.

1.6 Model is no better, as it has to work harder, thus burn more fuel to pull the car along. The 2.0HDi is the one to have..
