    Admittedly no longer on the scheme (as most cars aren’t), but I would have thought that the petrol XC 40 that you and Brydo have must be in the running for that award? 😉

    Depends on the journey. If we pop to the vets, less than a mile away, it’s 26ish. Average in winter is around 40 on our normal journeys (around 20 miles), with lows at 37mpg if we blast heat on “Hi” and heated seats going.

    I’m sure a MG HS owner will be along shortly to make you feel a lot better.

    Over the last 40 months I’ve had my KIA Carens diesel 1.7 MPV the average is 38 MPG but I lose about 3 MPG carrying my scooter in the back so without the scooter it would be in the lower forties.

    Measurement include Winter and Summer temperatures.

    my cmax i used to own was pretty terible unless sitting at 50/65, when it got about 45/50mpg. but in town and pottering about it could be 16/25mpg.  cost a lot in fuel, but was a great car otherwise.

    no issues now as i dont use petrol/diesel anymore.

    Had an MG zs auto 34mpg motorway, 28mpg around town.

    Now have a Sokoda Octavia 1.0 currently getting 44mpg around town. Only been on one long motorway trip at the moment and that averaged 56mpg.

    2018 Ford kuga 1.5 petrol AWD automatic. Used to be avg 21.9 mpg but recently 20.9 mpg, I think the new E10 is the cause as nothing else has changed in my life.  A lot of town driving, on my long trip to uni it gets around 28mpg.

    Thing is Mrs ajn loves the Volvo being an auto puts her back on the road (muscle probs causes problems with manual gears), meaning I hardly drive it (only to refuel) hence the miles..

    Blimey Mikey. Did you only drive it in first gear? 😂 I once had a BMW 750i M-Sport with a 4.4 litre V8 engine (not a Motability car, needless to say) and averaged around 10mpg better than that 😂

    I also had one of these with similar figures. Found it very underpowered.

    Am now in another Kuga with a 2.0 diesel AWD with 190BHP.

    Much better and more than doubled the mpg.

    The worst mpg that I achieved was in my first car, a 1974 Hillman Avenger, but it had a fuel leak, as I discovered once when I filled up with petrol in Exeter and it ran out before I got to Bristol which is just 80 miles away!

    My privately owned BMW 520d was the best for fuel, averaging 47 mpg, even though I drove it ‘keenly’.

    I don’t choose cars based on fuel consumption (I’d have an EV if I did) but for enjoyment (once all the practicality boxes are ticked). If they happen to return reasonable mpg then that’s a bonus, but it’s not a major consideration.

    Our current Motability car (BMW X1) is exceeding expectations though. We certainly didn’t chose it for economy, but it averaged 44 mpg during the summer and is returning 40 mpg in the winter with the heater cranked up, heated seats on etc. I think that’s impressive for a quick 2.0i petrol auto with four-wheel drive. That’s better mpg than we were getting from our previous VW Tiguan diesel!
