I'm struggling to get more than 45mpg at the moment. Admittedly, my commute is only about 3 miles a day (and yes, before you say it, I should walk but I'm lazy!). I've been trying very hard to drive according to that annoying little thing on the dash that tells me when to change up and down, so maybe this tankful will be a bit more economical!

i'm getting 64mpg on my 7 mile commute to work and back. mostly 30-40mph.. chuffed with that, as once the car is run in, I will start using 5th more as per the little display symbol. That should up it a little more too..

I can't imagine anyone is getting worse mpg on their daily journeys compared to their previous car- even allowing for the mpg on M&M perhaps being a tad optimistic.

2,000km now on my up! white so now starting to keep an eye on the mpg. Without trying to drive in a savings mode I'musing 5l/100km (56mpg uk). Very pleased as my Lupo (with less hp) was using 6l/100km (47mpg uk)..!

I think the measurements on the cars computers are probably the most accurate as the engine controller knows exatctly how much fuel it is injecting in!

I have measured my fuel use manually and over 1200 miles have so far averaged 52mpg, with my Move Up. Im certain that M&M exagerates the figures because its never showing less than 60mpg and often reads over 70mpg on one of the regular routes I do

We have no chance of emulating VW's claimed mpg figures as we live in an area surrounded by hills....sure takes it out of the figure going up hill!! That said we are still averaging 50 mpg.

I'm on about 1100 miles. I'm getting better consumption around town than on the motorway. Cruising between 65 and 70 drops the consumption between 5 and 10mpg

So it's the opposite to our diesel Lupo.

The most I've got from the up so far is 420 miles to a full tank Edited by: bugbabe34

I just did my first check after 600 miles and I'm getting 52 mpg but 400 of those miles were on motorway. I might try dropping my motorway speed to 60 but not sure I could stand it!

Reading these economy figures is great, our current Leon which we are keeing for the mo is only around 30mpg round town then 35-37 on the open road not bad for a 208Bhp petrol. Seems that my up! will be not far off 40% better!! The figure here are also within 5-10mpg of what I get out my 50cc Scooter which the up is replacing which ok is still very good at £6 for 100 miles city riding. Having almost no power means you tend to spend most of the time on full throttle which does nothing for economy......
