Obc Versus Arithmetic

Just covered 400.4 miles on a tank of V-Power with the OBC giving 40.4 average.

Brim to brim filling was 44.5 lts = 40.6 mpg.

Pleasantly surprised at the OBC accuracy.

Mixed rural and urban driving on new winter rubber.

That's good to know David, mine returned 41.9 mpg over 280 miles mixed running last Sunday according to the OBC. It did 47 on the outbound journey which was 95% motorway. The journey home was a mixed run back across the Yorkshire Dales with some standing traffic. It's reassuring the OBC is pretty accurate.

At risk of repeating myself myself, if only we had a moderator who had a nottymattic Rav who was as jealous as me at this mpg pornography.......he would soon have youz languishing in the detailing Section........better than youz deserve IYAM.......

Lol.

Definitly looks like the 4.4 can achieve better results than 4.3. Toyota have done something well here with the redefined engine.

Hey come on Kev ! It can't be easy having a pedal missing and terrible fuel economy. Keep your chin up, if you need a chat you have lots of friends here. If things get too much for you we know where you will be………..

If I read this right I totally agree with Kev,why is it so important to religiously record every mile that each gallon provides?

Anyone care to help me out on this as I don't see the point of worrying if I get 10 miles more,or less on a tank of fuel.?

And nor I do not expect an auto to give as good return figures as a manual and I accept that as the price to pay for more relaxed driving.

And no, I do not have money to burn as I now live on a pension.

I can only speak for Myself here Del, I don't record every mile nor tank of fuel, it's interesting that David found the OBC reasonably accurate and the remaining issues are very much light hearted.

Whenever I do long journeys I treat getting the best MPG as a challenge.

No finer site than seeing that yellow bar creeping up to the 90 zone ha.

It helps to relieve the boredom.

Can't wait to get my pension,then I can give it some beans.

I don't worry one way or another whether I get more or less from a tankfull. I just find it interesting knowing what the car can do with my style of driving. I have though gone out of my way to maximize a tankfull on my other vehicle and do hold the club record of max miles covered for a single tank. Boring as that drive was. May try it with the RAV next summer.

Mild mis-read of my usual jocular self, O Sheriff of the Trees, but agree wholeheartedly........l was well warned and aware of my ottymattic purchase giving me what can only be described as PMG (Pish Miles t'Gallon), but with the new flexibility gained by the Lindop Chip, and the 10% gain therefrom, and the Long Time Dead attitude adopted this year.....good luck to those getting these better MPG figures. Have been using a petrol 4.5 litre V8 Porsche Cayenne in the last week..........believe me, the Rav is one hellya car folks.

Ah...... except for manufacturers like BMW whose current 8-speed autos out-perform their manuals re mpg. If they can do it......

The latest petrol RAV with CVT looks to give far better mpg than my older petrol RAV. Something to look forward to in the future! To be honest though I would still prefer an automatic even if the mpg figures were slightly poorer.

I agree that the difference between auto & manual mpg's wouldn't be a deal-breaker for me. Nevertheless, we've tended towards autos mainly because The Management doesn't do manuals! There are some cars where manuals are much more rewarding than autos but, having said that, I reckon it's only a matter of time before thechnology & environmental demands will mean that most cars will be autos and manuals will become nostalgic museum pieces.

Not quite the same I know but.................

Ive been running a Yaris Auto for best part of 12 months, a 1.33 CVT, it returned an average 45 MPG and im light footed (read that as tight wad) I have just swapped it for a manual and guess what, brand new I know but only getting 44 MPG.............shocking for a 1.33 IMHO

Kingo :thumbsup:

44 in winter with a brand new 1.33? You're doing well mate; Reckon you could get it up to 48 by summer once it's worn in! :lol::thumbsup:

My calculated mpgs are dropping about 1 a month so far as the weather gets colder :( I'm getting a paultry 60mpg at the moment! :crybaby::lol: (No I'm not smug or anything :P Go go 5 Door Diesel Yaris Mk1's! :yahoo: )
