Worst Ever MPG?

40 posts in this topic

Whats your worst mpg?

I managed to get 26mpg over a 400 mile round trip.

I had a 300Kg heavy duty trailer, and my megablade on the back. I was gutted that I had to fill up!

Mind you it was pulling really well and took it in its stride! ECLIPSe.gif

When flooring it, I got it down to 12MPG while overtaking 15 cars in one go.

They been annoying me for sometime, so waited for a long straight section, and then blasted past them.

On the constant mpg thing, I got 32mpg when I floored it up a hill.

The R32 went down to 12mpg when I did the same!

My old Jag could be pretty evil - worst ever average for a full tank was about 14mpg, but on the "instant" it would drop to 3mpg when accelerating hard uphill. But jeez do I miss that V8 growl frown.gif

I could never get nore than 25mpg on my commute in my Volvo T5R, it was as bad as 10mpg if you drive it hard. Got a new V70 D5 on order, wonder how good that will be ....

I've had an average of 26mpg in my PD130 (before I started using the tuning box) on a particularly "enthusiastic" drive.

Lads this is a sooty forum, there's just no comparison with our petrolhead friends tongue.gif

I got 39.5 on the LM trip, some 675 miles and various speeds. That's the worst i've seen for a journey, but when diesel is 71p approx per litre in France, i'm not complaining too much.

Would constantly get below 20 mpg in our ML270cdi inspiration, and the '02 320d auto touring would always be between 28-34mpg and only once on a trip to scotland crusing round for a week did I get it to just under 40mpg.

Well, I'm back and all sooty now. New V70 D5 (185bhp) due for delivery monday. I can't believe I'm getting excited about owning a diesel estate. Performance (on paper) is nearly the same as my Golf GTI Turbo, but with 40+mpg ... I hope its better than the Mundano diesel I have had as a courtesy car... beerchug.gif
