    Blacky 850 t5, Mpg? What have you guys had out of yours?

    Well ive always managed to achieve a good mpg out of all my 850's ive covered 576 miles this week to and from Great Ormond street Hospital and achieve nearly 32mpg out 60 ltrs of fuel the picture below was just as the fuel light came on, that includes stop start in heavy traffic on the m11, and sitting in traffic in London.

    As ive said before the best ive had from mine has been 38mpg but as a rule 35mpg is the norm.

    What do you guys get out of yours?

    I got just over 32 in Gul when I went to Inverness and back, but I hardly ever saw a queue on that journey. That was going off what was actually going in the tank as well.

    Thats what id do, brim it then set the trip, never go off the fuel computer there out, especially mine as the fuel reg and injectors are different

    I normally averaged around 32 on my old T5's, real money though was more like 27. I never got a mile over 400 from a tank though. Well not that I dared to go lower than anyway!
    Arguing is pointless....she may not be right but she's never wrong

    Tell her a remap is just having your satnav updated.....

    In the R, and 300 from the tank is normally when I look for a garage, but I have had 370 or so before the light as come on. In the C70 T5, I get 420 and recently 450 before the refuel light as come on.
