Re: Renault scenic 1998 RT 1.6 8v MPG? and common faults

Our '97 Megane 1.6 8 valve is giving us around 40mpg on mixed driving,your Megane Scenic will be a little heavier but should return around the same.

I'd say you have problem,either a fuel leak,poor running causing excessive fuel consumption,or a faulty gauge.Theres around a gallon left when the light comes on,so best case scenario for yours MPG wise (if you ran it almost completely empty before putting 20 in) is high-teens which is way down on where it should be.
