    Default Great fuel consumption for 1.2T 2008

    My previous 2008 active (2015) got 8.4L/100KMin 80K of use from its 1.6/4 spd. Very pleased with the new 1.2L 6 speed combo(2017) with the computer reporting 6.6L/100Km in first 6,000k of use. Much torquier car and always in the right gear for a given situation.And heated seats! Very happy Jan.

    Great to hear- especially compared to the earlier model. I have a 2017 year 2008 with the same 1.2 3 cyl. I get about 6.2-6.3 on a long country trip. Around town its in the mid 8s - not quite so brilliant but its only using the lower four gears! I have absolutely nothing but praise for the car after 18 months and 30K - except the bloody stop-start which I have to switch off every time. You should that after about 15K, fuel use decreases. I must say that the car computer is always about 0.2-0.3 optimistic. I always calculate Kms travelled vs fuel in tank.

    I hear the new e208 is going to get 0.0L/100km... but your electricity bill is going to be like having eight teenage daughters at home.

    I drove a new 110 HP 208 1.2 7300 km in Europe last month and the average over that distance (from 2 km - new - to 7300) was 6.2. Not great but not bad. Top speed was (frustratingly) limited at an indicated 192.

    Should point out Barry that I am Ubering it full time, city driving. 3 hrs driving shows 15 mins stopped engine on average in eco mode. I drive gently and resist flooring it unlike my 306 GTI6

    Mike, was that speed limited or rev limited? I can't think why it would be speed, at that speed anyway.

    It was an electronic limiter. The car clearly would have pulled 210+ without it. It was on Michelin Pilot Sports, V-rated, hence my frustration! In 6th at 192, it was around 4000 RPM.

    Actually the electricity bills will be not quite as high as you might think and of course you subtract the savings created by driving PAST servos! 6.6l per 100KM at $1.65 premium equals $10.90 vs $4.50 in example below.Other examples may vary as may the costs of power and fuel.
    The cost depends on where you live and the capacity of the EV's batteries. For example, the average price for electricity per kilowatt hour (kWh) in Australia is about $0.25 and it takes around 18 kWh to travel 100km in an average EV. So, it will cost approximately $4.50 in electricity charges to travel 100km2

    Not forgetting the wear and tear on the vehicle.

    hi
    i am lucky enough to have one of the last manual peugeot 2008 diesel
    it is 2016 and has 28 k .not even run in.
    i get 5l to hundred km in the city and less than 4l to hundred km on the highway
    i think this car with the new updated 1.6 hdi is one of the most economical cars in the market
    hybrid cars are good too till u have to change the batteries that will cost u the saving on fuel you had all the years.

    Try using 5th till its last breath, the new 3008 with the 1.6 THP does the same thing with 6th gear.

    No there is a speed limiter. Won't exceed an indicated 192 no matter what. Torque was 200 Nm. Not the issue.
