What Mpg Are You Getting In An Is220D Se-L?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Just wondering what your MPG is?! My 56 plate IS220d SE-L took £97 to fill and I got 10 days out of it so I have become accutely aware of my MPG. I'm getting around 30MPG.

Could you kindly tell me if this is normal? A neighbour has purchased same model and advised me that he had his re-mapped (I think this was the phrase) and as a result has gotten a better MPG since...thoughts?

50% of topics here are about consumption

And what...? Simple, quick to answer question. Just wondering what peoples averages are.

PS, I loved the post on driving to get the best MPG however, I am not 'into' cars as such and alot of it doesnt make sense. The main principle I get and I shall apply those points. I have been conscious of my driving and feel I am not getting the best out of it so will certainly educate myself better! Thank you

Only on the 220D, the petrol owners have nothing to complain about.:shifty:

As Tango says, so glad I have a petrol IS250.

MPG figures will fluctuate according to many factors though.

On my IS250 short commutes I get low 30's MPG, that will rise to mid 30's MPG for longer runs and any decent motorway mileage it will be nearer 40 MPG.

Thanks.

10200miles and the trip computer is saying 36.6 mpg and that's a lot of short trips

I had my 220D for almost 120,000 miles and the average would be about 36 mpg overall.

I now have a IS250C SE-L petrol V6 Auto and if I'm careful I can get 33 mpg. What with the fact that diesel is now more expensive than petrol I'd say my motoring costs about the same but the engine and gearbox on the V6 is super slick.

1 UK Gallon = 4.54 liters

At 135.9 a litre this mean that 1 gallon of diesel now costs £6.169 (depending on which garage you use!!)

On average my 2007 is220d is returning between 31-34 miles per gallon.

I very rarely use a motorway so most of my driving is start-stop - I dont often move out of third gear and consider myself to be a careful driver.

I have my car serviced at Lexus every 12 months as I only do about 7000 mile a year

I reset the Average MPG at last service (10k miles ago). The reading is 41.9mpg. For me it is not about motorway driving. The most efficient way to drive is in fifth between 45mph & 55mph. You can get well into the 50s mpg at this speed/gear combination. From the post about efficient driving, the point I agree with most is putting the car in neutral when coming up to a red light or slowing down in general.

Currently, mileage is 110,000 on 2007 is220D. Full Lexus service history (7 stamps in book).

Back and forth to work and short runs I'm getting on average 40-43 mpg.

On a decent run I get 54 mpg using 5th at about 70/74 mph. (Using cruise)

My old petrol Lexus was nowhere even close to that.

I am getting about 8 - 8.2 liter/100 (35Mpg) in the city with normal driving (summertime with less traffic jams and warm weather).

To summarise. IS220D fuel economy is never good enough to make up for having to drive a diesel.

Comparatively the IS220D has limited rev range, lower power, pointless high torque, increased noise/vibration, uses dearer fuel and has a gearbox which is not outstandingly good. To be fair, the latest incarnation despite lower power output drives considerably better.

The Lexus is no worse than most diesels; but complexity needed to keep emissions within increasingly stringent limits has worsened both basic fuel economy and importantly, the reliability/consistency of fuel economy. It also seems a strange idea to buy an expensive car with the aim of economy. A Toyota Avensis diesel seems a more appropriate package.

Ultimate economy depends on all the emission-control components continuing to work properly (this forum indicates that is not altogether likely for the IS220D) and how you drive - particularly modifying driving to take into account the different characteristics of the engine. These two last points largely explain the huge variation in mpg actually achieved.

'06 IS220d SE-L — Average fill up at Shell garage costs about £62 but I never let my vehicles run below the petrol light. Driving style permitting my average range sits between 33-38mpg

Because I am a regular city driver, I maintain my car religiously:

- Air filter change annually

- Oil flush every 6K

- EGR clean annually

- Tyre pressure every month

As a result, this has effectively increased my MPG to sit between 37-41mpg. I occasionally use a fuel additive, every 6 months or so, which I have also noted to be a slight improvement to my MPG.

All that, with no change to how I drive.
