Re: Fuel consumption on my new 3.0 CRD limited -
City driving in the CRD Overland
1st 400km came in at 13.7 lt per 100 km
Currently getting 12.2 lt per 100km with 500+ km on the clock.
Seems to be steadily improving.
One thing I noticed was initially when stationary and idling, the fuel consumption bar at the bottom of the Fuel Economy screen on EVIC would turn solid and the km per 100 lt would steadily increase. That appeared to really bump up the fuel consumption though the 13.7lt figure was calculated using an ipad app I use to monitor running costs (Roadtrip HD, if anyone's interested)
Might be just a coincidence, but last night I upgraded my software in uconnect to 2.120. This morning I noticed the fuel consumption bar at idle does the opposite and now shows 0 fuel consumption at idle.
Obviously, I wont be getting optimium fuel economy until the engine is run in.
