Fuel economy

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Done about 3000 miles in my es now all settled in nicely.

A word on fuel economy. I drive regularly from east Manchester to Telford. So urban then M60 M56 to Chester then A41 (yes I know it's not the shortest way but it avoids M6 hell).its about 80 miles or so with a variety of roads. Didn't take care of the fuel economy and didn't hang around on the motorway. I got a fuel consumption figure of 60.4 mpg for the trip which I think is phenomenal!

Photos attached by way of proof.

Just very impressed with it.

That's really good. Like to see the tank to tank figures.

Tank is not that big. Smaller than the IS. Think it is just 50L. So you should still get a hard day out of it , but  that's it.

I got 6.2l/100 or 46mpg on a motorway run just the other day. Religiously obeying speed limits. How do you get 60 out of it? Do 17" versus 19" make that much difference.  I don't drive hard.

50Litres...

That's small. Still it's a good 20mpg on my GS250 so touring range is probably 400 miles.
