GEN4 MPG was created by stiffsteve204me
I topped up the fuel this morning, although only at about half tank. I had covered 160 miles since the last fill, mixed driving, on A roads, and unclassified, with a fair bit of urban tootling.

When I last filled up, I made sure it was to the neck, and likewise this time. 18.12 Ltr./3.986 Gal.
That works out at 40.14 mpg., which i am happy with from an auto box.

The average on the dash display, over 1097 miles, is 39.4 mpg.

It looks like you could give Miss Daisy lessons.

39mpg average in an auto is amazing. I average about 33-34mpg, which includes lots of urban driving. Best I've seen on a long motorway trip is 39.2, but more usually 37-38 on A-roads/motorways.

Is that a manual Bob?

Yip it's a manual one. I should add that I don't always travel using a very light throttle pressure for max mpg. Then again the Jimny doesn't really seem designed for pedal to the metal driving. My wrists are a little tender after exercising a 1200cc motorcycle … I think it best not to compare mpg figures over the weekend!

As long as our 'convoy' doesn't descend down to Portknockie or Pennan harbours - stereo Kinetic Yellow might be too much for the locals?

I'll have a ride out to Pennan, Bob, and see how they react, although two may well be too much for them. :laugh:

I drive the Jimny very gently and never go above 65, so I'm going to put my disappointing mpg down to the tyres!
