Notice your getting around 25MPG....was hoping for 30 oh well better budget a bit more for fuel!
Hi, yeah never cracked 30mpg and don't think it ever will tbh.
It does depend on the journeys we do and obviously the speed.
The last figure was 23mpg ish as we spent the whole time on motorways at 60/65 (M18 & M1 to Silverstone) and then on the way back we were a little faster eeking towards 70. We did have a few queues coming out of Silverstone as well though.
There are times when we have hit 27mpg, I think these were tootling around near home towards the coast where the roads are more like 50mph and have some downhill sections for off the throttle coasting.
What engine do they put in them these days for the new models?
I have the older model 2.3 (110bhp) 5 speed gearbox.
I think the X250 models of the 656 previously were the 2.3 (130bhp) 6 speed boxes but now are 2.2 (100bhp)?? with an upgrade option to 2.3 as well?
The newer engines may give a bit better mpg, especially a 6 speeder for motorway use.
I'd not worry too much tbh, it is a little demoralising when you see the total on the fuel pump but you soon forget when onsite and enjoying yourself. Compared to the amount the family cost in icecreams and meals on holidays the difference in 30mpg - 25mpg isn't that much bother.
