Re: scenic expression 1.6 auto 04 mpg ?
A petrol, automatic MPV, I would reckon on high twenties in town to high thirties on a run (being realistic), as Phil says, anything higher is a bonus.
People (especially sellers) will be 'economical' (pardon the pun
) with the truth, as they know buyers are cost-conscious these days & don't want a 4-wheeled millstone to carry.
Official figures should be used as a guide to compare different cars, but don't expect to achieve what the government did on a rolling road, when the car was brand-new.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
