    Hi,

    Just averaged 26 mpg in our new Chausson 718 on the Fiat chassis with the 150 Multijet engine. Only did around 120 miles on mainly A roads and motorway. I had expected nearer to 30 based on what I've read so far. Am I being a bit optimistic? Thanks

    10,000 miles and we average 25.4 MPG - to be honest, I would not expect anything more. You might get 30 but would need to keep the top speed down a lot; we cruise at 60mph where legally permitted

    It's a six speed manual. Thanks

    Virtually the same as ours. I use mine around town as well.

    Thanks for the replies. To be honest I did think 30mpg was optimistic - we just about got that from our previous T5.

    It will improve once you have done 10 - 15000 miles, fiat consider 15000 to be run in. Type of gearbox won't make much odds as the auto is a robotised manual if anything the auto is slightly better.
    We average 26-27 have had 30 but depends on the terrain.
    Doesn't really matter when you have spent over 50k on a new van what does a few quid extra in fuel matter.

    Thanks - you're absolutely right about the cost vs the purchase. It was more out of curiosity than concern. Only done 300 miles so far so a way to go before it gets more fuel efficient!

    Exactly our philosophy - the layout is good, the van comfortable so nothing else really mattered. We monitor the consumption out of habit more than anything else but would not let the MPG dictate anything to us. Life is too short

    @Jack Slipper - it should improve a bit when run in but as you say........just enjoy the van (y)

    We have a 150 manual in our PVC which we've had since last May, we've got around 6000 miles on now and we're averaging around 26 mpg, it could be better but hubby does like speed and enjoys using the fast pedal! :D

    Our previous PVC was on the 130 manual and we got up to 29 mpg on average over the 3 years we had him, I'm sure we could have got over 30 but not with hubby's heavy right foot!

    We do a lot of mountain driving when on holiday as we love the scenery so that in itself means we'll have a lower mpg than most.

    I keep a record of our fills and mileage which is useful and in our current PVC the computer readout is actually very accurate when compared to my figures. The best mpg we've ever had was 99.9 (the computer readout doesn't go above that) ... but that was on the way down one of the mountain passes without using the throttle for approx 6 miles! :LOL:

    The first few hundred miles in our new 2.3 130 Ducato we were getting about 26mpg. Now done about 3000 miles and getting 30-32mpg. So mpg does get better with mileage. Give it a few more thousand miles.

    Only another 14700 miles to go.:)

    On mine since about 12000 miles the Comformatic box is working even better, Fait do say the software is set up for an engine that is run in which is 15000m.

    Our euro 5 150 is about 2mpg better than our previous euro 4 130 (both 2.3 Fiat manuals) First one was a coach built and current one an A class. We average 29-31mpg.
    Whilst I don't know if the real time computer mpg display is accurate, it does teach you how light a foot you need to achieve good mpg. Cruising along a flat road at 55ish it can read 45mpg, then hit an incline and it go to 18mpg.

    Last year in our 718 we averaged between 28 and 29 on longer runs, but that was with a 155 Ford engine, so not really helpful sorry. It did take a bit of running in before we got to those figures though, the first few hundred miles I only got about 20, but it then got slowly better all the time.

    I get just under 27 mpg in 3 litre...avg'd over 3k miles.

    With Comformatic box ..pretty much always in auto.
