MPG figures

Post by Bonzo » Tue Feb 05, 2019 6:53 am

Just wondering if anyone is achieving anywhere near the claimed MPG figures for the 1.0 115ps with manual gearbox or DSG ?
I’ve done about 1200 miles now and not getting anywhere near the claimed figures.

Hi there I’ve done approx 5.8k in a one litre manual excellence on return recently from Edinburgh I achieved 48.9 mpg if that helps I will say that when new it was horrendously thirsty

Willie,,,,,I must still be in that “when new” phase then, I’m hardly ever in traffic so on the move most of the time and can’t achieve 40 mpg in town

My long term reading is 37.8 and like I said I am hardly ever stuck in traffic ( advantage of being retired) so not idling for long periods.

Mine was considerably worse until 2000-3000 miles, now seem to get about 15% more mileage than initially. Seems to need that long for engine to loosen

Probably be even better as the most recent 1500 miles have been through the colder months when I would expect a fall off in mileage as engine needs longer to warm through initially on each run.

My Excellence Lux 1,0 dsg struggled to reach 40mpg, then after advice from my son who works in a Skoda dealership ,suggested I change the drive mode to normal and not the default eco mode. I am now seeing an mpg of 44.
The car has only done 1000 miles

Eco mode would suggest that it’s the most economical mode,,,,confused

Strange that you use the phrase "default eco mode". I have the same model and each time I turn the ignition on, the default is 'normal', I have to select the E(co) mode. If I turn off then restart, I am back in N(ormal).
