Re: Scenic 1 2001 fuel consumption on motorways

I wouldn't believe what the fuel trip meter is telling you as they are never particularly accurate!

Last year when I was using the girlfriends 52 reg 2.0 16v auto Scenic Fidji traveling some 80 miles a day on the M1 I was averaging 35MPG that was filling the tank to the brim zeroing the trip meter and refilling to the brim again and calculating the MPG. Which was not the same as fuel trip meter was telling me.

At 70mph you are going to use more fuel than say at constant 40mph as the engine revs are higher and the engine is having to work harder. Stop starting in traffic will also use more fuel than traveling at constant 40mph
