If the choice of car seems odd for a fuel-obsessee, it's not the petrol saving per se but the saving in relation to the manufactorer's figure that interests me.
Same here.
Some excellent figures there. I'm currently running at 47.85mpg in an '02 Fiesta Zetec-S.
Cheers.

Last 400 miles (since I started to apply hypermiling proactively) on Golf Mk 5 TDI, I am averaging about 65mpg. I am reasonably careful driver, prior to using hypermiling techniques, I was still 58mpg for last 3000miles. I hope to reach 75mpg but not sure as Golf is bit heavy car. Fabia/Ibiza with a PD engine would have been great!

Epic thread revival solarpower03 :D
Thanks - I've just read through it all and found a few of my posts from my early hypermiling days in 2008. I was stuggling to get up to 60 on a tank then!
As it warms up you should do even better, 70 should be possible....

My running mpg (last 10 fuel-ups) is 67.6mpg. My last 3 are 70.7, 70.2 and 71.3mpg. I am very happy - I hope this weather continues. I think the fact I do a lot of short trips and my engine does not cool down so much in between is in my favour. :)

Great numbers gm - a warmed up engine and the current temps will help a lot!

My last trip on Tuesday to railway station and back netted me 99.2mpg for the day over 22+ miles - my best day total ever :D

I've had over 100 one one trip a few times before but usually the other direction drags it well below the magic 100. So close this time :roll:

99.2mpg !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FANTASTIC!



So doe we have a top 5 in this competition??????? Be great to make a 1-5 list of top performers using average mpg from a tank? I know anyone could pretend to have done well, but a 3 pic requirement would sort that out ( almost completely ) say if you had to take a pic of your fuel gauge and milometer in same photo.

1st pic : showing full gauge and ZERO on trip
2nd pic AROUND halfway fuel gauge mark
Last pic: showing Almost empty, ( empty as your dare! ) and final number on trip.

Yes you could cheat and add fuel at anytime but you would be only cheating yourself, there should be no prizes ;)

How does that sound? I would be up for that on my next tankfull?

We all know its not a fair assesment on skill, as sombody with a diesel will probably get better results then sombody with petrol, doesnt mean they are more skilled, but to have a 'beat your maufacturers by best percent' competition that would be very confusing for all.
