Hi

I live fairly close to you and know the area well so I know the type of roads that you may use and I feel that consumption is about right.

I get approx 32mpg around here but mine is an auto which is known to be better on this car.

Figures taken from the Lexus web site:

IS250 Manual

Combined (mpg/l/100 km) 28.8/9.8

IS250 Automatic

Combined (mpg/l/100 km) 31.0/9.1

So yours would seem about right to me.

Yeah, those Lexus cars like to drink...

I thought 32mpg around “A” roads and country lanes was extremely good for a 2.5 V6 car.

I averaged close to 40mpg on a 400 mile round trip a couple of months ago. Agreed most of it was motorway but I still think it’s very good for a non diesel engine of this size.

Must be my right foot then 'cos my SE-L auto has never returned more than 30 mpg. :crybaby:

I guess a heavy right foot can easily make a difference of 2mpg and a lot more I would have thought.

If you are not seeing more than 30mpg on a long motorway run I think you should get it checked ASAP.

The car, not your foot.

I too have the SE-L auto and on motorway runs I get over 35 mpg. Don't think I have hit over 40 but I do have the air con on all the time and plus I do like to push her from time to time when I get a clear run :D . I sure with a little right foot patience I could hit 40.

Most I've got was just over around 34 mpg on a run back from Gatwick (about 140 mainly m miles). However, I did have the speed limiter with me (my better half) and stayed on cruise most of the time, and that's using BP Ultimate too.

Guess I need to come out of warp speed occassionally :whistling:

I average 34 most weeks which is a mix of a return journey of 210 miles each way using A roads and motorway (M25) and short journeys during the week.

Last week got 36.5 on the outward leg of 210 miles.

I have the mpg display on all the time -concentrates the mind as you can see at a glance what a difference flooring the accelorator can make. Doesn't stop me doing it but I do think twice if there's little gain to be made.

Overall, very pleased with the mpg - could only get 26 from the old IS300 so this justifies (slightly) paying all that extra dosh for the new model.
