Fuel economy of the Hybrid.

Hi folks,

about 700km away now, not filled her up for the second time yet.
According to the computer I scored 20.9 km/l (=59mpg-UK or 49.1mpg-US) so far. That is combined driving for short distances (<20km) and a few longer distances (4 x 130km).
Speed at highways: 110km/h (68mph) on Cruise Control where 100km/h is allowed, 125km/h (78mph) CC where 120 is allowed and 135km/h (84mph) on CC where 130km/h is allowed.
I find this score really good, but have to check if the computer is accurate at the next tank-fill. So, i'm not much of an eco driver as bluecar1 is, but I'm satified at the moment. The only thing I do to 'eco-drive' is anticipate on lifting the throttle or disengage the CC early and do light regenerative braking to harvest some electric energy to the battery. Also on local roads (max 50,70 or 80km/h) I play with the throttle to go electric as much as possible.

Specifications say the car can drive in EV mode up to speeds of 120km/h, but even at speeds of 135km/h (on speedometer is about 128km/h in real) I have seen the EV light come on for 20-30seconds or so every now and then.

So glad I bought this car, really love it so far.

best i have seen is 72mpg UK


620 miles out of a tank (into red 8 miles range remaining :-O ) only got just over 40 litres in, so it seems to keep a fair bit of a reserve in the tank


the manual says it is bad to run out of petrol, i assume as the start is run off the HV battery it will drain that at which point you will not be happy

Mr. bluecar1, you are real hyper-miler, I think.
What speeds did you drive? I hope you've not been driving 50mph, 3 yards behind a lorry to achieve this
Do you have any tricks or tips we can adopt?

I'm getting the same return as you mxhans ,about 59 mpg . I rarely let my tank go below half full . If I did maybe it would ? I'll settle for 59 mpg bearing in mind I live in Wales , very pleased with it in fact...better than my last diesel

A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it is not open

60-65mph long runs (my office is 195 miles / 300km from home )


I tend to drive up on a Tuesday and back on a Thursday, unless like this week I am working in London so about 80 mile each way


I am finding not using cruise is better, you right foot is smoother than cruise / regen braking


under 60mph I tend to find it keeps changing down to 5th to often, so better to drive at 62-65mph


keep out of sport mode helps mpg, but you don't grin as much (sport is fun at times)


that 72mpg was over a full tank, one trip back last week I filled up west London, and say 78mpg on trip computer after 85 miles


still trying to break the 80mpg, won't be long

That's a good habit to keep up since it prevents you from damaging the fuel pump. Too many people let it run well past the fuel light which done repeatedly can result in a bad fuel pump much earlier than the average owner.

It's not just that ....ran out of fuel too many times in my younger days and too old to tramp miles with a petrol can these days

Have you tried the sport mode to "persuade" your car to stay in 6th below 60mph?
And may get the missing oooompf from the electric motor?
Or does your gearbox say "I know it better" and shifts down to fifth on its own even in sport mode? What kind of rpms are we talking about at 60mph in 6th?
