Re: What is your average MPG based on the volvo comp???? (GShyneDM)

Combined freeway and city driving keep me hovering in the 18.5 to 18.1 area.<br>I am going to Phoenix this weekend and we shall see what it does.<p>Since upgrading my ECU my average mpg shot up just a little (like .5 to .7 mpg or so) which IPD told me it would after I had it a few weeks. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

LoL...you guys are going to hate me, and I got witness for this. I get average of 22 mpg for local and around 24 for highway. I think something is def. off.....maybe I should do some more calculation before I brag about it.

Re: What is your average MPG based on the volvo comp???? (The_one_n_only)

Don't think you are too far off, I regularly get around the 22 mark with a full tank and I do have a heavy foot!<p>Problem is that while I may get 22 mpg, you lot could be getting 8-10 and still pay less in bills!<p>Damn we're ripped off!

Kai take your reading from your trip computer on the dash. Thats what we are referring too. Not calculating it yourself.

LoL~ that is from the trip computer, so I think it's off. Sometimes I get as high as 25 something mpg. Few guys who have ridden in my car can confirm.

Re: What is your average MPG based on the volvo comp???? (GShyneDM)

On a long motorway run with the cruise set around 85mph, I regularly see 33mpg. Commuting (still mainly motorway) I average around 26mpg.<p>(Those are imperial gallons, so that would be the equivalent of 27.5mpg and 21.5mpg in the States).

My bad, it was actually 24.9 when I checked it today on my trip computer. The best I got was 25.1 when I was cruising on the highway today.

Re: What is your average MPG based on the volvo comp???? (C70SPEED)

On my most recent trip on the highway I was doing about 10.0 kilometers per litre which equates to 26 MPG.<p>How accurate is the trip computer though? Cuz as I was driving my kilometers to zero fluctuated very rapidly. In a space of less than 5 minutes it went down maybe 30-40 killometers to zero. And then started to go up again. I was travelling at a relatively constant speed.<p>Is there anything to be concerned about? Or is it just overly sensitive? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">
