Fuel Consumption - brilliant! Empty Fuel Consumption - brilliant!

Post by Guest on Sat Aug 02, 2014 8:35 pm

Hello fellow AS owners.
I have just done a "brim to brim" mpg calculation on my Inca over c. 2,000 miles, and it returned a smidgin under 32mpg.
Did it 3 times, and got wife who is a retired maths teacher to check as well.
It's on a 2.8 JTD engine. We do drive carefully, but I must say I am delighted with that.
Just felt like sharing. content

Like it!  allthumbz  allthumbz  allthumbz 

But as I get the same 32mpg out of a clapped out 1998 Duetto towing a trailer could you could do better?  Whistle1  Whistle1 

Well done all the same.  allthumbz  allthumbz

But isn't your Duetto more streamlined and probably lighter than an Inca??

I think the streamlining of the Duetto is more than offset with the trailer/quad-bike combination on the back; especially as the trailer has a ramp that is towed in the vertical position.

A top speed of 46mph definitely helps!  allthumbz
