Warwick XL mpg?

Post by Irnbru on Wed Aug 16, 2017 5:17 pm

With our 09 Swift Escape 664 we averaged 33 mpg on Fiat Ducato 2.2 litre engine with manual gearbox


What mpg do you guys get on a Warwick XL 


Q1 with a Fiat 150bhp Comfort-Matic engine/gear box?
Q2 without a Fiat 150bhp Comfort-Matic engine/gear box? e.g. nearest Peugeot base 160 bhp





Thanks and regards

My 2014 Warwick XL on a Peugeot base does barely 30mpg. The trip computer will tell me 33-35mpg but this is rarely the case.
When towing a Smart Car, we get 27mpg

My Sig shows what I get from my comfort-matic Nuevo. That's a coachbuilt but I wouldn't expect there to be too much difference - if you drive like me.

We have a Warwick Duo 150bhp, never really get much over 28mpg and that's on French toll roads with cruise set at 70mph. Trouble is it drops to 8mpg! when pulling away. Always try and keep revs under 3000.

Mind you it is rather loaded with wine on the way back. drinksallround

Manual gearbox on my 2017 Kingham, with the latest Euro 6 160bhp engine has averaged 32 mpg over its first 1800 miles.

I've got a Kari-Tek roof system permanently mounted and I'm expecting the consumption to improve as the miles increase.

We have a Warwick Duo 2011 (6 metre long wheel base), Peugeot 2.2 litre 6 speed box I think 120 bhp.
The reading on the mileage clock set to give average mpg gives us between 35.5 and 35 mpg. If reset for a motorway section we get around 37 mpg.
These figures include travelling through France, Spain and the highlands and islands of Scotland with single track roads.

We've noticed keeping the speed down to about 60 mph makes quite a difference as there's less wind resistance.

Yes but I think you will find if you calculate the mileage between filling tanks you won't get nearly as much as that.  The computer is a good indicator for relative consumption and I agree, 60 mph seems to make quite a difference.

Same thing on my Ford Kuga. Computer shows 40 mpg+ but actual calculations are more like 37mpg.

2016 150bhp manual, 33mpg through lanes, 36mpg motorway @ 60mph on cruise control. Tyres pressures at 60psi all round, going back to 65psi all round so should go back to original 35 and 37-38mpg. oh and 2bar rear air top.

Going off subject a bit, do you find those pressure settings make the ride hard and just bang over the rough roads we have in the UK?

I set mine to 55psi and air top to 1.5 or am I running low?


Not really too concerned about MPG, why buy a van and worry about running it, I see most vans cover 5000mls PA on average. My Focus gets 21 round town!

Forget the fuel consumption, this is not a cheap hobby!!

My mechanic told me to ignore 5th and 6th gear and hammer the thing as much as you wish!! Ok I use 5th, rarely 6th and hammer it. It does, measured 29Mpg. It, however doesn't suffer from EGR or DPF issues!

I asked him how often they got white man vans in for EGR or DPF issues.................never!!
