Re: Sensational fuel economy Brisbane to Sydney in V6

Every time I fill up these days I grab the iPhone and do my calculations. I only do city driving these days, the CRD averages 8.3 to 8.9 L/100. Gotta be happy with that.

Seriously? Do you drive like a granny?!!

Prob would help to quote the average speed displayed for the period you calculated the fuel economy for... theres a pretty direct correlation and would help others compare data.

I dont get my CRD for another 2 weeks by my twin turbo diesel BMW X1 gets 9L/100km in the city with an average speed of 33kh/h and this goes to 10L/100km when traffic is heavier and average speed falls to 30km/h... Ill be shocked if the CRD jeep can beat that given it weighs at least 500kg more.

No, don't drive like a granny but I'm not a lead foot either, being my first turbo diesel "car" I'm still getting used to manually dropping gears up hills etc and sometimes over rev. I do put the foot down often.

EVIC ranges between high 9's and low 11's but a straight calculation using the fuel docket gives me high 8's to mid 9's. This is raw data, litres used and kms gained. Remember, this is 98% city driving with the odd run on the freeway.

For such a heavy unit, that equates to fantastic fuel economy.

Agreed. That is really surprising for a vehicle weighing in at near to 2400kg! Ill be sure to report in a couple of weeks once I've picked up my Overland CRD.

Don't know, maybe worth a try...

Re: Sensational fuel economy Brisbane to Sydney in V6

On a recent drive from Melbourne to Sydney then Newcastle and return I achieved an overall 10.89 l/100k in my V6 petrol. Total distance was just on 2,500klm.

Mostly Hume highway plus some CBD running in Sydney and Newcastle. Filled in Vic with ULP and in NSW with E10 mostly from BP.

For something so large and blunt nosed...I am happy.

Regards
Bernard

Sounds to me as if you are calculating km/l, e.g. 8.5 km/l: 100/8.5=11.76 l/100km which is a little more than your average EVIC showing and similar to my EVIC versus real figures.

Still damn good for weight versus city traffic!

Re: Sensational fuel economy Brisbane to Sydney in V6

I have found my EVIC varies between being too optimistic and a little pessimistic. I just did a 5000klm round trip, reset the fuel consumption when i left and calculated manually along the way and by the time i got home the EVIC value (which was 10l/100klms) was pretty much spot on!! This included muddy/dirt roads, driving around town and highway driving. I am pretty happy with that especially considering i had my wife and two kids plus a boot full of gear! If i drive conservatively i can get it down to 8.7l/100klms (purely highway). I have the petrol v6 2011 model and i am consistently baffled that it never seems to be considered as good as the diesel or V8. As soon as i put my roof rack on the fuel economy goes to crap but if you consider what you plan on using it for and aren't planning on towing anything why would you buy anything else considering the extra cost of servicing and fuelling a diesel or v8.

Re: Sensational fuel economy Brisbane to Sydney in V6

Very impressed with Canberra to Sydney 7.4 litres per 100 klms in a CRD today cruising at 110 kph.

BTW Canberra to Sydney (approx. 300klms) and car had a full tank (Caltex Vortex), 2 people and some minor luggage. Got to Sydney and Fuel tank indictor still looks full.
