Hi I have just purchased a CHR Hybrid 2017 1.8 and it seems to be eating fuel anyone any tips on what i may be doing wrong ?
Mine drinks fuel!!
But seriously, what figures are you getting?
How are you driving? Gently, heavy right foot, sharp braking?
What sort of journeys are you doing? Motorway, heavy traffic, open road etc?
What mode do you use? Eco, normal, sport?
All the best
Alex

Now at 11k miles and average according to computer is 60.5mpg, have a longish trip of 180 miles from Somerset to Dorset today, as only 40 miles is M'way I think I'll be exceeding 61mpg by the time I return tonight.

As mentioned earlier whilst I only use supermarket fuel (93ppl yesterday after nectar points) I do use 25ml of this stuff when I fill up:

Seems to be doing the trick!

Used eco for 3k miles and then found that normal felt better and made no difference, think I've only used sport for 30 seconds in ownership :)

people seem to be getting good MPG, but still not the 74+MPG which Toyota claim is possible???

The display on mine is very optimistic. Regularly shows 58-64 mpg but calculated using an app (and spreadsheet) it’s nowhere near!

My post above yours contradicts that as I've bettered the manufacturers claim in my C-HR.

But I've been hypermiling for years, in 2009 I completed a Lands End to JoG run in my old 4l Jaguar

Jaguar official mpg = 24
my actual mpg = 39
variance = 38.5% above manufacturers claim

It was sponsored by an LPG company and measured exactingly.

The good thing is I did the (just short of) 1000 miles on 3 tankfuls of LPG, it was sponsored but had I paid it would have cost me 45ppl, which was less than half the price of unleaded IIRC at a cost of £80. So in monetary terms was 80mpg :)

Embarrassingly though I was just beaten by an LPG converted Prius! :shock:

Each month I reset my average MPg only because I’m able to claim personal mileage from my work.
Picked up the car in Jan and averaged around 52mph and I suspect as the car has run in the weather improvements plus I’ve learnt to drive hybrid style I’m now getting 63. My trip are mainly local rural and commuts are a good mix of all types plus a normally slow M25.
This week my 64 mile trip recorded a very impressive 83.4 mpg.

Like others, I have done a calculation brim to brim and find the system overestimates. For example:

Distance to empty reads 519 on filling up
358 miles and 33.1 litres used. I make that 49mpg but the car tells me I'm doing around 55mpg.
So DTE should be 464. My first guess was that the DTE doesn't have a learning algorithm. However, 55mpg and 43l gives almost exactly 519 miles, suggesting it is using the calculated MPG but is calculating it wrong!

Any views as to the accuracy of the MPG?

Not quite sure how I achieved this! :? I think it must have been downhill all the way. :shock:

Only filled up twice, so far: so no accurate calculated figure. But even driving on NSL roads (I live in the middle of nowhere), I’m struggling to get less than an indicated 60 mpg everywhere! :)

Only thing of note is that I drive according to IAM principles. Even so, this car continues to amaze me. Give it the new cogged ‘setting-off’ gear that new Toyota hybrids seem to be getting, and maybe a two-litre engine, and it would be perfect! ;)
