I have currently got a Golf 1.6tdi dgs gearbox and brought it because of it fuel economy of 69mpg.

Yeah on long motaway journey l was getting near 60mpg but most of my driving is around town lucky to get 40mpg at the moment getting 35mpg. That's why l have now ordered the chr hybrid if l can get 50 mpg around town l will be well happy.

C-HR excel hybrid in black delivery date April.

Hopefully mate. With the petrol prices rises, this is ridiculous. Plus the car tax on top of that. As some people mentioned, after April, no point in hybrid, tax band will be same as for 2.0l diesel tdi, and long journeys are similar mpg(some), but then, they worry about pollution and global warming etc. Where is the sense?! 😂

50 MPG does seem an achievable target on the Hybrid. Taking a look at spiritmonitor.de which is building up a reasonable sample size from 8 vehicles we see an average of 50.76mpg with a max of 54.99 and a min of 46.49. That min might be slightly skewed as it seems to be often towing a trailer. It is also worth noting that most of these readings seem to be on Winter Tires.

That's not bad at all. I'm currently long term @43mpg, but recently on trip to work and back, managing late 40's. Spending around £50 and doing around 340ish miles.(sometimes a bit more/less) That's @ 1.21ppl. Vw polo 1.2 tsi.

Well, mine is the second one with worst mileage and it is achieved entirely thanks to the low temperatures (always below -5C and down to -15C) and heavy traffic - my engine is almost constantly running to heat the cabin and to provide propulsion because the battery is too cold. In such conditions the mileage easily drops to 40 MPG. In the rare and short periods when the weather was warm, the mileage immediately jumped to 65 MPG. This is why I am expecting a huge improvement in a couple of months.

As for the winter tires, mine are 215/65 r16 which is narrower than the summer ones 225/50 r18. Which means that their influence is negligible.

Thanks JulianoG for clarifying. That makes a great deal of sense and where I am we are highly unlikely to see temperatures that cold which really makes me hopeful. I also hadn't realised that the winter tires could be narrower - not used to having winter tires here! - that would certainly negate any real impact.

Picked mine up today. Have driven nearly 100 miles. Average speed of 47 m.p.h. Mainly steady speed on A roads; some town driving; some overtaking; some hills (I live in SW Scotland); some country roads. Meter telling me 57.8 mpg. Early days, I know....however, taking my RAV4 (2.2 diesel) on almost the same trip in reverse- 42.5 m.p.g.

Clearly trip computers can be a little optimistic (weirdly never pessimistic?) So when I get mine it will be a brim to brim comparison and then that compared with the trip comp to tell my how much out it is.

Will report back by 6th March, as pick mine up 1st and then have to do around 400 miles of driving in the following 5 days :)
