    Default What is your Record fuel Economy?

    Being incredibly bored, recently I decided to attempt a economy tank.

    Vehicle Peugeot 206 GTi180

    Day 1:
    - Filled up at Shell (Optimax 98)
    - Drove 40 Kilometers (city and highway)
    - Economy 7,0 1/100
    - Trip computer states 721km left
    = 761 possible kilometers
    Day 2:
    - 45 Kilometers driven (same route as day 1)
    - Economy now 7,2
    - Trip computer states 683km left
    = 768 possible kilometers

    So what is everyone elses record?

    In November last year my son & I came back from Sydney to Melbourne in his Series 2 405 MI16 (running on BP Ultimate) & recorded what I thought was the amazing economy figure of 7.5 l/100km. All this sitting at the legal speed limit.

    I've recently changed the way I go to work - taking advantage of a new expressway. This means that most of my run to work is done at an easy 80 - 100 kph.

    Since filling up on tuesday morning i'm currently running at about 6.7 l/100k

    In a side note - ashvsaod - how do you have a 206 HDi 180 as per your sig?

    My best in the GTi180 is Melbourne to Canberra on Hume Hwy over 680km's, I averaged a speed of 102km/h and 6.9l/100km's.

    On the way down to Melbourne from Canberra was 99km/h and 7.1l/100km's.

    Now that the Hume coming into Melbourne just continues on to Western Ring Rd, the only red lights I saw were in Albury until I got to the High St exit after going through Burnley Tunnel. It's a good run...

    Actually that's really good for towing a heavy weight. The biggest difference is speed. Were you towing at 110km/h

    I'm hoping to nudge the low 20's next time. Last time after towing the caravan I found the hose clamp from the turbo upto the inlet manifold loose ... so it was blowing off boost (bloody shoddy mechanic that works on it). However I think just about every car we have ever owned has returned about 18mpg while towing a caravan ... Dads Veradas return about that too... It consitantly returns 34mpg if nothing is swinging from it's towbar on the highway (still not great).

    Hows this then guys, our old '76 CX wagon (huge bloody thing) consistantly returns 7.4litres/100kms ... yes 42mpg out of a massive 2.2litre wagon.

    Best I've recorded was 6.9L/100km in the Xsara VTS, driving to Greenhills Inn in Greenhill and back last year, approx. 300km run.

    I've managed 516km on 38.5L (7.46L/100km) driving back and forth between Hornsby and The Entrance. I filled up at the same pump at the same petrol startion. Most of the driving was on the freeway, but I did drive back via the old Pacific Hwy a couple of times . I wasn't driving for economy, and my car revs at almost 4000rpm at 110km/h.

    I can easily beat all of you:

    26.7 l/100km (in the Subaru 3.0R).

    Otherwise its 4.82 l/100km driving to the snow (well Sydney-Cooma) in the AXGT.

    Sorry I simply can't believe anyone returned 69.3mpg out of a 1.6litre slugomatic in a relitivly heavy car like a 307 .... Even if doing walking pace the whole way.

    Basically it's gotta be impossible. I've heard BX diesels consitantly return 60mpg, that's a NA diesel in a lightweight BX (your journeys would no doubt be 'sedate').

    Think about it. A 406 HDi's factory AS2877 highway fuel consumption was 4.0 l/100. How would Peugeot's record attempt manage 2.9l/100km - it's 27.5% below spec.

    My 307's AS2877 highway consumption figure is 5.4l/100km. Does that really make 4.5l/100km on an economy run that out of the question? After all, it's 16.7% below book spec.

    PS, I'd add this isn't a trip computer figure - verified at the bowser, with fuel cap seals, etc.

    Book spec is usually a load of [email protected] Heavy hatchback, slugomatic transmission. 1.6 petrol motor ... unless you travelled at speeds very dangerously below the speed the traffic travels at I think that sort of enconomy is highly unlikely. Deisels & petrol are chalk & cheese...

    eg: our old CX deisel gets 38-40mpg if it never leaves town ... It's just the nature of a diesel engine... Most petrol CX's will get 18-24mpg under the same driving ... even if you drive like grandpa simpson.

    I consider fuel economy figures to be those that anyone sensible can get in 'normal' daily driving, not for example a car sitting constanly at 55km/h for on straight highway like roads ... Or what was the old standard "fuel economy at a constant 55 (was it km or mile per hour)". Either way it was some stupid figure that bares no resemblance to the economy the car would actually return in normal driving.

    Ahhhh, language I can understand.

    Best improved fuel economy from transport: Holden 1Tonner went from 12mpg to 23mpg, when finished, (this entailed new engine/gearbox/dizzy/carbie/wheels and tyres/bearings/diff and 6 years of messing around).

    179 EH- 32mpg at 72 Miles/hr.
    850 mini- 39mpg at any speed.
    Beetle Green Morris 1000 West to Perth using a Boot tank, (for the range), 52mpg at a constant 55 Miles/Hr, (hand throttle and driver changes on the move).

    The 505GTI gets 10lt/100km, what ever that means.....
