Miles per Gallon

Postby Paul79 » Wed Apr 15, 2009 6:00 pm

Hi all.

I was just wondering how many miles per gallon i should be getting and if my car is running as it should.

I have an 03 Megane 1.6 vvt dynamique.

My other half mainly drives it doing short trips around the town as part of her work. Normally about 500 miles per month with this kind of driving.

I have never really been bothered with previous cars about how they perform but as with this car is shows you on the display i was wondering how mine is bearing up.

It was showing 30mpg when i last checked earlier before she went out.

Does this seem about right for this car?

Thanks

If you are only doing short trips then I would expect low to mid 30's

Well today managed to get 48.0 mpg on a 267 mile journey, drove at sensible speeds, and boot half full of luggage, plus wife and a 3 year old. So very pleased :D

The MPG is the only good point about my Renault Megane Estate 1.5 diesel on a 54 plate. I have never had less than 60mpg out of it and at least 750 miles from a 12 gallon tank. I do drive carefully, trying to keep it at 60 mph and cruising. But most of my journaeys are short, school runs and to work (20 minutes drive away along country lanes). I've had it up to 78 mpg whilst on a motorway for half a tank, but as soon as I left the motorway and drove along country lanes it went down to about 70mpg and lowered for the remainder of the tank down to 66mpg.

Rest of car, is crock of sh*t !!! Electric windows all failed, card keys break, alarm goes off on it's own...last Renault I will buy even if it is economical.
