fee your being unresonable I feel "Hope your MPG improves." You know as well as I do thats highly unlikely to happen
@hilly 38 mpg I can only dream of that I do short journeys to and from work mainly and local trips average for me is 32 mpg
except when Nissan had it in for checks they got 49 mpg something I have never achieved and nor am I likely to
unless I gain access to the way they manipulated my test of course.
I am really money aware and I have been monitoring in depth the amount that I am spending on fuel.I have done 4k miles in my 1.5 DCi Juke since the beginning of Dec. I do 320 miles every week with two Labradors permently on the back seat they have a combined weight of 55kg. I have the radioon / orIphone on and charging and the screen de-mister / lights as and when needed.The price of diesel is going up, yet I seem to be paying less at the pump. I fill up on the same day every week,I used to pay £40-44, now it is £36-37 per week. Ino longerhave thecomputer mpg showingas I don't think it is correct, it tells me I am still getting 47mpg, but I know that can't be right. I just used this caluculator on this site and it tells me that I am getting 52.7 mpg http://www.torquecars.com/tools/uk-mpg-calculator.php
Could it possibly be that it is the computer calulator that is incorrect or perhaps it has not been programmed correctly?
I've been waiting to report my findings, but what the hey.
week 1 - 45.9
week 2 - 47.1
i've had it set on viewing current mpg, and i'm still learning which gear gives best results at different speeds. I'm also still getting used to the car so i'm still pulling away a bit irratic. Climate is on, obviously no aircon.
Did everyone get to the bit in the manuel that states the diesel improves after 3000miles. I know some people have already done this, before I got my car I read about the issues and spoke to friends who told me they noticed an improvement in any new car after running in
i'm quite happy with my mpg, 2 weeks after pick up 400 miles done
Mix of country, a and b roads and bit of town. Watching, where possible, the current mpg really helps, when pulling away once you've reached your speed I found the mpg didn't go up much ease right off the pedal then go gental back on, same speed but loads more mpg.
I'm really starting to think other than driving in towns, it's peoples driving style giving the juke mpg a bad rep. I'm probably gonna get stick for it but that's my thoughts
each to their own opinion I have 2 diesel cars one returns the mpg it should and the Juke not so
I drive both the same way so for me that cant be the reason
In part I believe the issue lies with Renault updating an old engine to work with a DPF that it wasnt designed to and they need to design a new engine purpose built for the job
Got 55mpg this week, really happy with that, I thought I would see what happens if I drove it so that the rev counter did not go above 2,000 revswhen changing up and down the gears and it ticks along at 57-58 mph at 2,000 revs.
Just about to hit 1000miles, and will be filling up for the 3rd time at about the same time. So not super impressed but mainly my fault as i am still having to much fun driving her. Maybe in a few months i will have calmed down enough to try economising.
you dont seem pleased with your mpgs r you all doing long journeys or short you will always get more mpgs on longer journeys than short ones.I have a citreon c4 picasso at mo and am amazed on how little diesel i use on long journeys defo see a difference when i have a week of sort ones .decided to keep with a diesel so hoping i will find the same with my new juke .but must say getting a bit worried reading your posts
