Fuel economy
« on: March 09, 2019, 09:53:55 pm »
Hi all. Just wondering what average mpg everyone is getting on the 2.0 mk2 petrol. I've just bought a 2010 Takuya and the mpg is not what official figures suggest. By a long shot. I've only done about 150 miles after purchasing. The first half was mostly urban short journeys returning under 24mpg. Then I did a few hours motorway which raised the average to 28.8. I would like to know if this is normal or should I be investigating if there's something wrong with the car. Thanks!

Try resetting the ecu, and check your tyre pressure use quality fuel and a good service also.
