My Move Up! 59bhp will mostly be driven daily through town on a 5 mile journey to / from work with lots of stop starting. I wondered if any Up owners had similar journeys and if so what MPG are you returning?

As a point of reference my BMW averages 30 MPG on this route...

The What Car website reckons I'll get 44.2 MPG.

50 MPG in town certainly exceeds my expectations!





Can any other town drivers contribute?

If I drive around town only I will get 47 to 52 MPG depends on traffic conditions. To get higher MPG you need to cruise along at 50+ MPH. With only 3 miles of travel that you do, I would imagine you should get around 47 to 50 MPG. Enjoy|!

I guess the simplest estimate is to take the official urban value for the Up, multiply by the actual value for your BMW and divide by the official urban value for your BMW. That would probably account for your journey and driving style better than any other guesstimate.

As an aside, it might be worthwhile to give your car a real run from time to time. Lots of short journeys isn't good for it.
