MPG Most drivers now buy new car & drive it at top speeds and moan later about low mpg,new cars i have had i always run the tyres in for say 2000 miles as well the engine,gearbox need bedding in at low speeds i have found after 2000 odd miles upwards the mpg gets better so on,if you find time read the car manual which may state about running in,still waiting for my c-hr hybrid and been reading bits of the c-hr manual .

Really helpful
I wonder if I can get an online copy of the C-HR manual? I will give a try.
Thanks again. These things are important.

If I’m honest I don’t really focus on the fuel consumption. The one thing I have noticed though is as the miles are increasing the fuel consumption is getting better.
I picked my car car up in January this year and the computer was showing 45 mpg (I only reset after filling up) when I filled up last week it was showing 58mpg and I’ve now done 3000 miles. Fuel remaining has never changed it always shows 454 when I fill up I’m pretty confident I could get a lot more but I always fill up when I have a quarter of a tank remaining.

Although I have only had the car for less than a week and were taking a 32 mile drive out and return on country back roads, decided to see what I could do mpg wise.

The weather was warm but with rain showers, I kept the speed to 50mph (80 Km/h) traveled through Lincoln then the rest were villages plus one small town before reaching our destination. I drove keeping into the Eco band for roughly 80% of the journey.

On returning I did drive into the first half of the power band a number of times when joining main roads and onto a dual carriageway but overall cannot expect much until the engine has done a few thousand miles.

I do have a question regarding the energy monitor, I have only once been able to briefly reach seven full cells and that took some time to achieved on one journey, mostly I can manage six. Has any-one managed to get them all lit up in green or could it be classed as mission impossible!

It is almost mission impossible as it tries to maintain some spare charging capacity. Perhaps on a long steep downhill slope?
All the best

Thanks Alexr, Lincoln does have steep hills to go down but first you have to get up them!! :roll:

I've had it full twice in a first year of driving without any steep hills.

tricky indeed, since the system will try to use the battery wherever it sees an advantage. I suspect flooring it for quite a while (illegal, dont tell me) might max out the charge but even then I suspect the system will try to use the battery to assist this Vmax run :)
