What do 'admin' think about this? As someone said previously, maybe there should be a separate forum category with a topic for each engine size? Just that it ain't an ownership problem as such but it does seem to be an interest of many members. Widely varying figures too. :shock:

I have the 2.0VVT Megane 5dr (as my sig suggests) and over the past 300 miles I was averaging 37mpg. I've done 3000 miles or so since buying it and 35 - 36mpg is the norm for me - I don't do much driving in built up areas.

I once managed a fairly ridiculous 58mpg on a run to York (OK, I cheated and reset the trip just as I crested a hill that ran down for a good 3 miles or so. Still, nice seeing 58mpg on the computer, regardless of situation).

I've a 1.9DCI (120) and i get around 40mpg and the best I've seen was when I did 3500miles in a week around Europe travelling at speed 2 weeks ago (https://www.modball.com), I managed to get 49.7mpg, not quite 50, but still happy with that, think I got about 620miles out of one tank :D

Had my meg 225 for a week, and getting 26MPG !! not to bad (actually happy with that) compared to my 1.4 previous meggie 53 plate which was only getting about 30MPG!!

The 225 is a dream as you never have to go over 2000 revs in town so thats prob why there is much a diffrence as with the 1.4 you always had to boot it to get anything out of it!!

But as soon as you do boot it.....................................need I say more :lol: :lol: :lol: :wink:

12km/l use in heavy traffic.

what would that be in mpg?

Greets from Mexico City

34mpg when 1imp gal = 4.5
28.5 when 1 US gal = 3.8

I guess...
