2.5 DI MPG - What does yours do?

Postby rallyevo3 » Tue Dec 20, 2005 9:32 pm

I bought the van (98 2.5DI smiley) filled up with Diesel, done 330miles and she's between a quarter and a half on the gauge... not bad I reckon

What does yours do?

PS...If I was relying to this post I would say "yes Ian.. I had a fuel guage like that once"

all depends! if i boot it i get about 180 miles to the tank if i take my time i can get 550miles out of a tank :shock: also with me it depends on where i get the fuel from tesco's seems to burn really quickly whereas shell seems to last forever and not as much black smoke :D

p.s our mk6 350 camper does about 800 miles to the tank :shock: :shock: i think because its been chipped it affects it quite a bit

Only had the Torneo (petrol) for a few weeks and she has only just been serviced, but the fuel consumption so far has varied from just over 15 mpg (gulp) to 37 mpg (75-80 mph on a 200 mile motorway round trip). My old 1989 LHD Norwegian diesel minibus averaged 33 mpg over the 25,000 miles we used her, but struggled to get much over 75mph ever.

IT (not she) does about 400miles to a tank costing about 60 quid. that's varied driving with IT doing long runs and town use.

Ah Dan,

My bus is a family vehicle. All our vehicles have traditionally been referred to as 'she'. My daughter wouldn't have it any other way!!

It's an engineer/sailor thing, boats and steam engines are alway SHE, and nobody calls them nob. Transits are no different. Sometimes they will be a bitch, sometimes your best friend. Whichever she is today, wait a bit, you will get the other one sooner or later.

Yes I did, and I meant sailors and engineers, who are the same as the bloke waving at the car.
