copy of my last email to Nissan...i am averaging 42.9 but in and around Lancs, only 35-38.
I bought the car from Chorley Nissan in Preston. i spend half my time down in Preston to help my elderly parents out as they have health issues, so buying from there was easier than from home as there are no dealers in the area.
the first 800 miles were ok as i was averaging around 47-48...mostly on Mways and A roads between Preston and Scotland. it was when i spent 3 weeks in and around Preston that the fuel economy plummeted to about 35-36.for the next 500 miles..since then i have done about another 900 miles travelling back up to Scotland and driving rural up there then back to Preston.i was driving between 55 and 70 mph for almost all of my journeys on the mway and A roads.the average has gone up to42.9 but since i got back down here the mpg has dropped again over the last couple of days despite the car only being used for a 60 mile roundtrip to Colne and a50 mile roundtrip toFleetwood. i always fill it brim to brim to check the mileage and for those 2 journeys i have got about 38 mpg.this is far worse than my previous diesel...rover 2 litre turbo which averaged 50 mpg even around town. the reason i paid the extra money for the diesel Juke over the petrol was purely for fuel economy, yet from what the petrol drivers say in the Juke forums, they are getting almost the same fuel economy. i feel i have wastedthe extra £1.4k due to the very poor figures for the Juke dci in comparison to the figures put out by Nissan.
I have driven this vehicle as economically as i can, most of my journeys and mileagehave been on mways or A roads or in rural areaswith very little short journeys. despite this i am still gettingeconomy figures far inferior to the quoted ones and to what i expected..apart from that, the car is great, but this is a major issue to me.
