Newbie with an issue

Post by Lellikelly » Fri Feb 07, 2020 9:50 pm

Hi all

I was so excited to purchase my C-Hr.
I bought a used 1.2 2019 excel last week it had 3258 on the clock. But i have already had to refill the tank after only 240 miles! I can’t get better than 29.8 mpg. I’m constantly checking the screen but can’t get a better average. I’m really worried as I just can’t afford that kinda consumption.

I previously drove a polo 1.2 bluemotion tsi.

I live in Scotland and have a rural drive to work. Approx 10 miles away.

Anyone have any advice please

Are you driving in eco mode? Many gear changes or having the fans on constant etc I think will raise the consumption. I have a 4 mile commute and on a good day I’ve managed to get 46mpg and in sports mode I'm down to 28 mpg but that’s with a heavy right foot. Ive changed my driving style a lot to achieve the 46mpg though

Did you calculate the consumption yourself after refill? Better to do that as believe what the car tells you.
