I wish I could take photos that clearly.
Because of my poor photo you may have missed what I was asking.
My reading of 1200km is the range not the distance travelled or MPG.

I've had my range showing 935 after 70 miles.

Sorry thought you were after miles/kilometres per tank, the pictures are after doing the miles and then filling up.

Helps to have the car stationary when taking pics!

Taking pics hold the button a bit longer as it might then focus and then take pic.

If only I could have two rcz's like you Chris, I'd have the Diesel and the R.

With the diesel you have the beauty and the economy.

with the R you have the beauty and the power.

What a combination, such a beautiful workable machine.

I get about 420 a tank. If I drove sensibly probably more :)

I know it is not an RCZ, but the 1.6 HDi in the 5008 is amazingly frugal for its size and weight.
A tank will do 1,000kms approx 60litres.
I know, because our regular trips are either 250kms. or 500 kms, and return.
Half a tank to Madrid and back (250 kms each way) or to our holiday home in the south (500kms).
The readout shows usually 5.2 lp100km.
Impressive for a seven seater bus, eh? :clap:

That is impressive Stewart and Ian mine shows about 400 - 420 when I fill up but I usually get 370ish due to the heavy boots I wear. :eusa-whistle:

It quite amazes me that the French seem to produce the most frugal of engines, my second Picasso used to get regularly 65 - 67 mpg and for an oversized chicken egg - that was impressive, I miss that car - doh !

I am sure it is also a state of mind and journey type.
I forget the figures, but the Mondeo with the Duratorq old pre cdi engine sipped fuel and brought us from SE England to Western Spain, fully loaded with a consumption around the 5l p 100kms and cruising through France at 130kph.
The 407 2l hdi was ok on long runs but zapping about was not good, and the 108 Puretech 1.2 as a runabout is embarrassingly thirsty, but then the usual journey is a couple of kms each way to the local village.

I had once 1000km range on the BC while cruising in France. But then I reminded myself that I drive an R, shifted from 6th to 3rd and gave it some beans to wake up the engine :dance:
Range went down to 700km that instant.
RCZ R in red. driven daily. and driven hard.

That is because Ford already uses PSA diesel blocks for many years...
It's such a shame that Volkswagen had to kill the image of these wonderfully efficient and clean machines.
