300 Sport Petrol - a thirsty cat.

Post by s_penasar » Fri Jan 10, 2020 5:41 pm

Picked up on 19th December and have to say its a complete car. Previous XF was great then the wifes E-Pace was another level but wow the F-Pace breathless.

I have been driving around in normal mode as cant be bothered to hit the ECO button too much and have not had the right driving conditions to risk the Dynamic button.

So the real reason for opening this topic, what MPG do others get on average, book says about 30 MPG and i get 19.2 MPG. Note feels no better on ECO.

TBF i never bought the car for fuel economy however went for the petrol as i do less than 10,000 miles per year mainly on small journeys.

Hi,

Congrats.

Well your car is brand new at the moment I am not sure how many miles you have done till now but there is an engine break in period, I think 1500 miles or so it's in hand book anyway. Once you cross that things would get slightly better and in summer it would be more on better side but nothing drastic. Mine is 25t it remained somewhere 21 to 23 mpg during those early days now it's from 24 to 28 mpg. I am at 15k miles.
Also I would avoid eco during this period in hand book it says avoid too low gear or too high gear something so you better off in normal mode.
Others with your engine might be able to give you exact figures.
Those wouldn't be too different than between 250 or 300 bhp I think.

Enjoy and keep an eye on engine break in period I would say , all in hand book.

Thanks,

Regards,
KJ

Snap shot showing WLTP for petrol engines.
Looks more realistic than previous standard.
Stop and go traffic kills all the mpg economy figures during that time and are no way near to these published.

My 15 month old, 30t R-Sport has delivered an overall 28.7 mpg after 26 fills (10,400 miles). Mixed driving conditions from snow and ice to balmy sunshine (not too much of that, though!). Also a varied combination of Motorways, A roads and urban/rural country driving. You may find, as I did that the engine loosens up after around 1,000 miles and it starts to return better economy. Also about a 3 mpg difference between temperatures above 10C and those below. Best mpg was on a trip in the summer to Cheshire when the car returned a measured 36 mpg.

Hope this information helps.

I have a 300 sport petrol and usually get between 23 to 30mpg and that's with spirited driving A and B roads. 9 times out of 10 with dynamic mode switched on. Currently at 6K on the clock.
Best I have seen it 38mpg on a long drive up to Yorkshire. Worst was on short drives or when I first picked it up when it did just 13mpg with steady running in driving.
It's not actually much worse than my previous discovery sport 2.0D 180 which only managed a few mpg more but costs more at the pump.

F pace @ 5.8s 0-60 vs DS @ >8s I have never looked back. Not to mention all the oil dilution scare stories with that particular engine, was glad to hand it back.

I’ve just gone through 2000 miles on mine and averaging 25-27mpg for most reasonable journeys.. however sport + dynamic mode trashes that quite nicely :lol:

Short trips of a new miles are 15-20mpg though..

I had a discovery sport as a courtesy car while my 25t f pace was getting serviced. I could not believe how thirsty the discovery sport appeared to be compared with the 25t. I get 35'ish MPG (uk) from it.

I have a petrol 300 sport, on average with short commutes to work, which is a twelve mile journey on A and B roads with spirited driving I get around 28 mpg. I have done this journey using dynamic, normal and eco and on average there is surprisingly not much difference. The best I have achieved so far is a trip to Sheffield where it was showing an average of 37 mpg.
