The most accurate way to check mpg is the simple brim to brim method.

Fill the tank to the brim and reset the odometer to zero.Drive until the tank is nearly empty then refill to the brim again.Make a note of the odometer reading and the fuel used.

Convert the litres to gallons,then divide the miles travelled by the gallons used and you have an accurate mpg reading.
hi wakk44 . thats the way i do it and it is the best way you can't argue with how much you have used against how much go's in .be lucky

2.3 bolero 2010

Hi,

We get between 26 and 32 mpg from our Bolero 680, 2.3, 2010.

Total average over 6000 miles is 28.2 mpg.

Please can you give a link to euroserv's thread, 747? I can not find it!

Thank you,
Grant

That was me mrplodd.

I drove 250 miles(nearly all motorway) to Devon @ 60mph and achieved approx.25mpg.
On the way back I did the same route @ 50mph and got nearly 29mpg.

n.b.Fiat 2.8 JTD loaded to 3400kg

I wouldn't call it a huge difference but significant all the same

cheers Steve

Hi Grant,

The article on O&AL has dropped back to page 9 if you want to read all of it. Cannot miss it (fuel economy). I have cut and pasted the relevant post below.



The figures that you have stated seem realistic. Our panel vans with 2.8JTD engines before 2006 did 30-35mpg but the new 2.3JTD's do between 23 and 28mpg. (The old 2.8idTD easily did 40mpg!)

Blame the pillocks in Europe for making the manufacturers conform to idiotic Euro 4 standards that are biased towards particulate matter and Hydrocarbons instead of just using less fuel. None of them was smart enough to listen to the engineers that advised them that the reduction of fuel consumption would inevitably lead to lower emissions and of course conservation of resources. Of course, that would have netted less revenue from fuel taxation.

Euro 5 is much worse. Don't wait; buy a Euro 4 now. After March next year you won't have a choice. All new Fiat Ducato's ordered after March 1st 2011 will be Euro 5. You might save a little in VED but you will pay at the pumps. (And what I am hearing about fuel and ad-blue consumption on Ford's and Mercs does not sound good either).

I have a 2009 reg and our first french tour of 2500 miles averaged 27.4 mpg.
We had it remapped at the western show in August as it did wonders for our 08 transit based Burstner both in power and fuel.
Went for our second french trip a week later covering a similar distance and averaged 26.2 with no noticable power increase either so we took it back and they checked it and gave it a few tweeks.
On the way home there was a definate power increase but will not be doing any trips now till the new year so cannot report on that yet.
They do say that 15% could be achieved so hopefully will be looking for around 31 mpg.
Watch this space!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Look at the reply from euroserv. You will get less mpg and the reason is quite distressing. Owners of older m/homes are going to be much better off regarding mpg.

BTW euroserv knows his stuff, its his profession.
Hi,
I bought a fiat ducato burstner T580 2007 130 multijet last year which had 'remapping' done by the previous owner.
I travelled to spain and back this year (fully loaded) and trip showed an average of 36.4 mpg when I got back home.
I rarely drive over 65mph and I must admit that I do drive miss daisy and like to keep at a steady 60.
However, how can I tell if the mapping thing is working or not ?
Is 36.4 mpg good ?
Would appreciate any comments.
Thank you.

sandh, it's a really old (9 years) thread but you can sort my MH out and wave a magic wand over it for 36 MPG!

Ted.
I try and state simple facts in a nice way.
