Fuel consumption
#1
Hey all,

Just wondering what everyone is getting on there fuel consumption? Preferably a mix of city and highway driving!
I have the 1.6L HDI turbo diesel engine.

3 Ladders and conduit on the roof.
About 150kg in the rear. (tools and custom drawers/cabinets)

Im getting 6.5L/100km
Thats 36.2MPG for all you imperialists  Tongue

Citroen quote 5.8L/100kms but i figured the extra 0.7L is probably due to me making the car even less aero-dynamical than it already is, and the weight..

Good question, but it is almost the same as how long is a piece of string.

I have a Pug Partner 1.6HDi (2007; 90bhp; M59) and I have been recording my fuel consumption since I bought the car, almost 8 years ago. This is miles from the odometer and until the pump clicks (1st click), i.e. from full to full.

My best consumption figure is 4.57L/100km, worse 7.65 L/100km and average/mean 5.71L/100km. This is across 8 years and traveled around 70k miles. I do not have 150kg of stuff in the car, but the second best figure ~4.7 was done with 4 normally sized people in the car + luggage, but that was ~50% motorway traffic and ~50% city traffic.
There are a lot of significant factors that affect consumption, traffic, weight, winter/summer, etc. The most significant factor for me is the winter/summer months, that is at least here in the UK. In a mixed traffic I get ~5.5-6 L/100km, but again it depends on whether it is winter or summer. I mainly travel to work (city traffic, stop-go etc.) in winter, who wants to go on holiday in winter, so consumption drops significantly. Also, the winter diesel has slightly different additives than summer one and consumption drops partly due to that.

If interested, I can provide more info.

Cheers,
Saskak

I once measured 6.3L /100Km on my 1.4i 1999 Berlingo, and that was with just me in the car, sun roof open, and several large IKEA boxes strapped down on in the passenger side.
The route is country roads and what is laughably called 'motorway' here in Norway, very little city traffic.
I didn't do any of that 'pretend there's an egg on the accellerator' or any hypermiling stuff.

I like to say that the Berlingo has a aerodynamic profile that compares favorably to an elephant in a convertible....

Typical is more like 6.5 or 6.6, and winter driving is... bad...
Studded tires doesn't help, and I often have to drive in 4th gear when I could have used 5th because I don't want to freeze to death...

Between 45 - 49 to the gallon but i have nothing on the roof and my van is empty 95%. I have used millers in it every time i fill up since it was new and that does make a difference.

I would be happier in you case being closer to 40 but it all depends on your right foot.

I would not trust the computer too much. Generally when I look at it (reset it every time I fill) it is ~0.5L/100km off. So, if the computer shows 4.7L/100km (~60mpg) and I calculate how many miles I've driven and how many L of fuel I've used (fill top to top), I often get ~5.2L/100km (~54mpg).
My observation is that the computer is always rather optimistic, gives the owner a warm and fuzzy feeling that their car is better than it actually is.

Hi
On our Berlingo  Mulitspace (2008 1.6 HDi 90HP) purchased at 135,000 miles sold at 153,000 miles. Not a lot of motorway use so pretty much all countryside driving with the odd tow job (750kg). Usually just 1/2 adults and not much else.

Average was 44.66 miles per gallon (6.3 litres/100km) over the entire time we had it but that included about 3,000 miles towing a small caravan.

Over the final 3,000 miles (no caravan!) that went up to 61.07 mpg (4.6 litres/100km) - after we fitted a complete set of four Goodyear tyres, new steering rack/alignment. Previously four mixed tyres. Pressures always kept high. Nothing else changed.

Like I say - very little 70mph driving, tootling around locally pretty much and no town stop/start crawls.
I think the van has lower gearing than the passenger version too?

p.s. measured on a brimful -> brimful tank + Excel (no computer on this one)

My 2015 Blue HDi computer shows about the same as you.But my working out shows nearer 50 mpg.

I used a generic fuel consumption conversion site, I could not be asked to calculate it myself. May have put some random digit here and there, but the site calculated 5.2->54mpg (UK)
