niceThe only reason I did not was I forgot that it re-sets automatically after refuelling and as I went straight onto the pump just got out and refilled.
that is very good! I find it does depend on the roads and the way you drive. the less you press on the accelerator as well as using EV mode as much as possible.My fuel consumption going to the coast was around the 64mpg mark and managed 68 on the return with plenty of hills in the Horncastle and Alford areas. Your fuel consumption may well depend on the type of roads or variation of speed as well as stop and start situations and of course the speeds you drive at.
I find on the high way using the cruise control helps and I am told it should not help, but the MPG is constantly going up and down and driving so carefully made it to 64MPG tops, but I am happy to see you and others achieving more
on the motor ways in cyprus the speed limit is officially 60MPH but the police dont strop you if you are going up to 70. I stick at around 63 on cruise control, but do use EV mode as much as possible and keep trying to keep the blue bar fullTo have reached the mpg I achieved was mainly due to driving at between 50 - 55mph, I usually accelerate keeping into eco mode but when traffic is behind I only accelerate in the first half of the power band and as soon as reaching my target speed activate cruise control if road conditions allow. Once up to speed be it in built up areas or rural I very quickly release the accelerator then re-apply with very little pressure, this usually ensures that I am able to keep running on battery where able.
Yes it is, otherwise I would have gotten another mercedes lol... my hybrid c class would get 30mpg but it had 300 horse power.I have take the car up to 60mph but only for short periods as my main aim is for fuel economy.
I will be taking a very long drive on motorways later this month, the outbound journey will most probably be lower fuel consumption than the return as it has been on previous vehicles but my speed will be up to 65 - 70 mph and I expect to see a drop in mpg.
if the roads are good it might not go down so much. For example on the way to another city I drive there are lots of steep roads and the car is constantly going "down hill", so on the way the MPG goes up. The roads are not straight at all here.
