What MPG , do you get ?

Post by eddie0303 on Sun Sep 01, 2013 12:09 pm

Hi All , I was just wondering what sort of MPG you get on various routes , Urban , Suburban , and motorway . and from the various models ie , 993 , 1300 ,LPG and Diesel . I have a feeling I may be shocked .

Cheers all

Eddie

Blimey HJ that's good MPG. When I done Hungary on mine, from memory, I only got 37 going empty and 39 return with a load on, so the secret is always keep a load in the back Very Happy
Just found my original post on the trip
Averaged 60/65 MPH, outward trip 7.9 MPL return 8.9 MPL
so 35.55 MPG going and 40.05 MPG return

I average 22 on LPG, thinking of fitting a hour meter instead of a odometer Laughing Laughing

If your getting poor fuel economy look at stuff like the map sensor, tps sensor, lambda sensor, the timing, leaking exhaust, air intake temp sensor.

And obviously your driving style Laughing

My mpg is 40ish . £37 to fill and I get around 257 miles. I can't grumble with that.

Mine's similar, this one's nowhere near as economical as the last one, or maybe I drive it harder?
