Just filled for first time with my 24 1.8 Design, worked out at 60.6mpg, previous CHR averaged 52.8 over time owned.

It's pretty much the same size and weight as the early version, with more refined variants of the same engines. You'd expect the consumption figures to be very comparable ...

I'd expect to find more variation between drivers and driving styles that I would between the new and old models.

That’s right. 
The newer models will deliver so slightly better efficiency in certain driving conditions only, like for example in town low speed use where the ev drives will be increased as a result of improved ev motors and Battery
Overall average mpg between previous generations and latest ones it’s not so large as some people may think. There are physical limitations to how a combustion engine works, weight, and overall energy required to propel a ton plus weight of metal on the road. 
Auris hybrid from 2010 with over 270k miles still deliver average 54mpg in current weather. 👍

I can agree with this consumption, before getting a RAV4 I had a CHR and I would easy do this with mixed roads A's, B's, and motorways. Locally A and B roads anything up to 65mpg.

It’s a bit early to tell and I hope the onboard computer is not wildly optimistic but so far on local runs , sticking to the speed limits , using ACC a lot particularly in 30/40 zones the 2.0 PE is throwing out some impressive numbers , well beyond what our old 2.0 Excel did 👍

Very good results indeed 👌
perhaps gen5 it’s a larger step ahead in terms of the ev part upgrade over gen4 and what some people believe like the car care but who is calling them gen4.5 instead. Actually the gen5 hybrids are very good imo with the new batteries and electric motors .

I’m always sceptical about onboard MPG figures, the first refill will be the real test. The 2.0 engine feels a lot less busy, and more refined,  than the 1.8 when we did a back to back test in the Corolla with the 5th gen Hybrid system. I’m not doing anything special , I  have it in “Normal” not “Eco” and  just drive smoothly, anticipate what’s happening and keep up with traffic flow 🤷‍♂️

So finally managed the run over the NY Moors to Whitby so plenty of hills, and a very un stressed drive train considering some of the gradients. Average speeds are what they are , can’t see the point of risking life or limb to get by one truck to find myself behind the next one 🤷‍♂️ scenery was great 👍😎

The tank has now been refilled and over 441 miles the onboard was saying average of 67.5 mpg the actual calculation based on a brim to brim refill was 61.1 mpg so around 10-11% optimistic, which I’m guessing is down to the EV Mode usage being thrown into the mix. The upside is the new CHR did around 4-5mpg better than our old 2.0 Excel, and better than the quoted WLTP of 57.6 mpg

Unless you have a PHEV there is no "EV usage" to throw into the mix.

There are errors in both calculations:

  • The OBC will be estimating fuel consumption - I don't believe that the car actually contains a fuel metering system.
  • The brim-to-brim will be dependent upon your / the pumps accuracy of "filling to the brim" (better if you use exactly the same pump) and the temperature(s) when you fill.

The mileage measurement may or may not be exact but at least it will be the same for both calculations.

Over 'many' tankfuls you should be able to get a realistic measure of actual consumption.

But who cares! 60+ mpg is a pretty decent figure for the car. 🙂

Second fill up and nearly another 400 miles with a big chunk of MWay and the NY Moors thrown in. The calculated figure is 58.8 MPG so not shabby and more than happy. TBH I’ve stopped putting much credence in the onboard figures as 88mpg over the return leg from Whitby was unbelievable 🤷‍♂️
