Which model is this? 2020? Mine 2017 and it doesn't show EV percentage.
BTW, my best was round trip of 200km (one day 100km and other day back) - ended up in 3.9l/100km (first day it showed 3.8, next day 3.9)

Yes, that's an indicator in 2020.
Rogerwilco@, what engine do you have? I've never seen 3/100 even when I had 1.8. With 2l one I can often see 5/100, but 3...wow!

I suppose it was mostly downhill :) I wonder what a trip back would show :)

We should be taking delivery of a 2021 , 2.0l C-HR Excel in the next two weeks. It will be the wife’s car used largely for business which she will be doing around 15,000 business miles a year , plus non business milage. Will be interesting to see what MPG we get over the long term. We were considering the Sport but having to wait for a factory order for electric seats , and slightly softer ride swung it in favour of the Excel which was already in the U.K.

I did get over 60 mpg indicated in a 2.0 on a decent test drive but only real way of knowing true mpg will be by calculating on “brim to brim” refills.

So this is interesting, I seem to be getting significantly better mileage than most people.

The minimum I get (A-roads and motorway) is around 65mpg. That goes up to 67 with some roundabout and stuff, I’m usually getting 80-90 in longer journeys through suburban areas.
It’s never usually less than 65 unless I’ve really ragged it or it’s a short journey with a low battery.

I’m driving pretty normally, not particularly trying to save fuel. I use the AC modestly and use cruise control on the motorway.

Any ideas what’s going on? Got a funny feeling I’m missing something obvious…

Do you have a 1.8 or 2.0 engine? Are you going solely from the onboard computer MPG or calculating based on brim to brim refill? I’ve always found the MPG calculated by the vehicle to be optimistic when compared to calculating based on what you no you have used for that tank of fuel.

I dont believe these figures. I have had a 1.8 for 4 yrs and a 2.0 for 5 months and the 1.8 did 56 (measured on brim to brim over 4 yrs) which varied from 48 to 63 depending on temperature or type of journey. The 2.0 is doing 54 (52 to 56).
I can occasionally get a wild figure on the dashboard - eg doing a short journey downhill with warm engine it goes up to 80 or 90 but not for a journey of any distance.
All the best

Interesting that you found the 2.0 is only slightly more thirsty than the 1.8, what other difference do you find between them? We chose the 2.0 as has more than enough power for any situation and very relaxed when driving at the relevant speed limit.

With my 2.0l the display is showing 45mpg with purely short, town journeys which I'm happy with as this is at least 10mpg better than my previous car, a 1.2l Nissan Pulsar.
Now I'm on holiday in Cornwall with longer journeys cross country I'm regularly getting over 60mpg on the display, even though I do use the occasional burst of acceleration to overtake a tractor or slow lorry
