HI ALL HAD MY ARONA NOW FOR 2.5 MOUTH CAN NOT GET MORE THEN 260 MILE OUT OFF TANK OFF PETROL DOING AN AVERAGE 36.5 TO GALLON A BIT DISAPPOINTED AS COMBINED IS 56 - 66 MPG AS ANYONE ELSE NOTICED THIS
ARONA 1.0 95 BLACK WITH GREY
Hello, what mileage are you upto, it uses more fuel for about first 2000 miles until it loosens up. Also uses more in cold weather
260 mile range seems low, my 1 litre 115 DSG does about 310-350 miles before fuel light comes on (when there is about 40 miles left) depends on how much urban driving / traffic
Maybe something is slightly wrong, like slightly dragging handbrake, just an idea
One other thought, how much fuel are you putting in, if you put the nozzle fully in, some pumps cut off early, and you might be 5-8 litres short of full (but will be full enough for dashboard fuel gauge lights to show as full).
Mine was not great for the first 2000 miles.
Got just over 3500 mile now - still not great I'm getting 280-320miles a tank but i'm in stop start traffic everyday and only do 7.5miles a day work and back. so only just getting warm when I get to work. So not an efficient way to run.
I did a long 920mile round trip to Germany beginning of November and its running on Winter tyres, and was getting 51.1MPG for the trip.
So it is good on a longer run.
Also if your heavy on the pedal, and drive at high speeds that will use more fuel.
So once you're above 2000-3000miles you should see an improvement, but also use the blue trainer to see what you can do to improve it as well.
as its not all the car, it how you drive as well.
Driving style does have a lot to do with it.
I have a tdi 115. If I drive really gently I can get the computer readout into the high sixties or even the very low seventies.
However, when I hit the hills where I live this falls dramatically.
It often drops to the low/mid forties.
I know that the computer only gives an indication and not a true figure but that is still a huge difference.
My SE Tech TSi 1.0 115 DSG has done 2,000 miles and averaged 42.7mpg since birth including one long run to Cornwall when brand new, currently averaging about 44 in a hilly area with mostly shortish runs, hoping for a bit more long term. Not great compared to my previous Leon 2.0 Tdi DSG, but I accepted that compromise to get away from diesel. Roll on Seat bringing out a Petrol hybrid version??
Of course no car in the real world achieves the figures in the tests (the manufacturers all seem to have disclaimers to that effect these days), and it absolutely depends on your driving style and whether you live in Norfolk ("very flat Norfolk") or the Peak District like us.
You might be interested to look at https://www.honestjohn.co.uk/realmpg/seat/arona-2018 for 51 other Arona users' real mpg. If we all post our own on this site then the statistics will build a reliable database of real performance. Of course the figures will be skewed by those relating to nearly new cars, as most of them will be at the moment!
Anyway, I think the Arona is a great car, very pleased with it overall, and pretty much everyone whose been in mine has admired it for comfort, looks and quietness. Even my wife, who usually moans about driving my cars, has said she likes the look of it and enjoys sharing the driving to Cornwall! Job done!
Presently before counting any values I mostly run with the oil temp displayed on the dash, mainly because before it gets to about 80-90 ºC any average mileage calculation is totally erratic depending on the traffic conditions
I only go by using a calculation and not via the Cars computer.
Fill up the tank, and work it out from the milage done from that tank.
I drop up to Lincolnshire beginning of December and I was reading 60.5mpg on the car. but I was not driving fast, about 65mph all the way.
I was in no hurry.
to 425miles to a tank.
that is my best. usually over 300 now, but slightly less with the winter wheels and tyres on it.
Got 4000 miles on it now. so the engine is loosening up nicely and I did take it easy for the first few hundred miles and I started to occasionally when it was up to temp give it a boot full. in sport mode. the engine now is really responsive and quick too, does not feel sluggish.
