This is my first post I am on the edge of my seat waiting to find out when the facelift 225 can be ordered. Handing in my company car to but the 225.

The last info I had from a new car supermarket was may june delivery as the first facelifts will be standard cars and the 225 will come later. I am going to struggle if thats the case.

As a matter of interest what MPG should I expect to get, I try not to cane it all the while.

NE1 suggest the best web sites to get a new one from.

Cheers

Uncle

^ your joking right ? :shock:

when i took out a 03 plate 225 when they first came out for a test drive even though it was in a city dealership so economy was derived from stop start driving it still showed 30.2 mpg which i thought was just about ok. i imagine that on a normal M.way A.road drive + some light urban you would creep to 34mpg with the M.way only being a very credible and acceptable 36mpg . not amazingly hard to imagine seen as the car has a 6 speed box and a relativley light kerb weight + the fact the just below boost you arent accessing the turbo`s very much.
also considering the almost equally weighted Audi TT 1.8 T quattro with 225 bhp can do between 30-36mpg if driven off boost and using the correct gears as A.) Renault and french cars in general seem to have great economy. and B.) Its a modern engine with low co-eff drag body and 6speed box with a map desgined around peak power/torque rather than low end shove (from my experience)

i mite add in my old 172MKII i could see 41mpg :shock: and in my cup (without back seats and a paltry 1004kg kerb weight) i can get 43 mpg !! better than some higher peformance oriented diesels with just a few hp more. on average my clio can muster 38mpg on the cup after a few thousand miles of driving and the 172 a bit less but they are hindered by relativley short gearing and a 5 speed box

by that estimate with more power+weight but extra cog to help i would guestimate a real world econ average of 32-33mpg


*edit* a custom remap on turbo petrols usually yeilds a few more mpg so possible 34-35 with mapped ecu to take in account UK`s good fuel type

Mine sits at around 20-21 and thats with the missus driving 90% of the time, all round town shops/school runs. Was a little higher than that before the Exhaust was fitted.

Slow and tedious matey, bit like my transit :lol:

I will continue to take it to the dealer until they put humpty back together properly, problem is they are so incompetent they could be in government

My bloody punto is about 19mpg today, but was in a bit of a mood to say the least.

Fuel Economy - MPG

Obviously depends on how you drive it and what sort of roads you're using.

Motorway = 35 MPG

Around town = 22 MPG

Mixed use = 25 - 30 MPG
