Fuel "economy"

13 posts in this topic

I had a MY93 WRX a few years ago and really miss the performance, so was looking into getting an '04 plate estate (AWD) WRX. Roughly what sort of "economy" could I get on a mixture of roads, including a lot of A-road driving?

Cheers,

Chris

Bit like asking how long a piece of string is I'm afraid mate?

So many factors to consider it doesn't bear thinking about. I consider myself to be doing well if I get 200 miles out of a tank! EEK2.GIF

I didn't buy it for it's fuel economy though! 169144-ok.gif

Well... not really; I can tell you how many MPG my old A4s did, and my 318i does, on this sort of journey. It is a pretty consistent figure.

Well if anyone can give you a more precise answer to the question Roughly what sort of "economy" could I get on a mixture of roads then their crystal ball is obviously far more powerful than mine.

I WAS trying to be light-hearted. coffee.gif

I think you'll find I said a mixture including a lot of A-road driving. From that you can deduce I am not referring to "a lot of town driving".

Amazes me that people have the time on their hands to reply with useless answers.

I drive 15 miles to work on A roads, B roads and town driving. I get 21mpg average from my 2.5l 07MY Impreza. On a run down to the South Coast a few weeks ago, I got 27mpg. That was M40 -> A34, so constant 70mph stuff.

Seems to me me that the original question was a fair one. Why for all we know, you may be the donut for even knowing what a pruis is tongue.gif (what is one anyway? tongue.gif)

I used to have a 2004 WRX "wagon" (5 door)

I used to get around 22mpg miles from mixed driving, but this would plumet with some spirited driving.

Absolutely superb car though 169144-ok.gif

I think the best thing about the Impreza is that it doesn't have a fuel computer telling you what mpg it's getting. So unless you're sad/poor enough to actually want to work it out you'll never know! Just fill 'erup with V Power when she's empty and enjoy! 169144-ok.gif

Seriously though, for a newer model (2003/4/5MY 2 litre or 2006/7MY 2.5 litre) you should expect somewhere around mid 20s for realistic mixed driving. Which (trust me on this) is alot better than the early ones. tongue.gif
