We have just returned from our spring break to France & Spain in our Compass Drifter 410 returning our normal MPG of 25.3 in March to 27.5 coming back in May. Over possibly 15/20 trips to Spain, in the same motorhome, the vehicle has returned very similar MPG. When these figures are quoted, during conversations with others, they are aghast at such a low MPG performance and often 35/38MPG for a similar weight of vehicle are bragged about. ( I will ignore those that quote 40/45MPG). It must be said we keep to about lorry speed of 90KMH and watch our acceleration.The total milage for the vehicle is only 31K and has recently been checked by Peugeot and given a clean bill of health. Reading the MMM from time to time its noticed that figures as low as 21/22 MPG are quoted when they carry out tests on new vehicles, that would appear to be the other extreme. The point is, are we being kidded by those that do not keep accurate records on their MPG. How often do we hear that on a full tank they went from X to Y which gave a figure of so and so. I will be writing shortly on our trip given channel crossings, roads used, aires stopped at, fuel pick ups and prices and Pyrenness tunnels for those new to travelling to France and Spain.
