Pretty good i think! 42.8 mpg for those in the UK

I've got a diesel so 58 mpg make me happy ;-) Sure there is more there to squeeze out of it ;-)

Hmmm, I think there might be something wrong with the weight of my right shoe....

I have an average of 32 mpg. I regularly get that down to below 20 during runs :o

I know I drive my Z hard, my tyres & my MPG are a testament to that. I think the Z is the sort of car that should be driven like that, but I would like to get a bit closer to your mpg figures.

I did once try my very best, and I got well over 40 but I had a relapse on the way home :twisted:

Of course my average consumption isnt that low
But it was my first trip that turned to be so economical
And the strangest thing is that for some Miles i drove as Hard as i could

Guess that bigger turbo was by far the Best upgreade for my engine

Over nearly 300 miles (since Tuesday :D) Mine is reading 40.8mpg.
Some of which were driving sensibly...
It would have been higher, but I've been failing at getting the sat nav working, so she's had a spell of sitting on the drive with the engine running.

I thought that thp 200 had much higher consumption due to the shorter gearing but as i See this is not a problem
I must Change my gearbox...

Yes, I'm quite impressed with the Z economy. I averaged 6.1 liters per 100k on a recent road trip (all highway). Pretty impressive I thought. Averaging about 7 or so around town also which is amazing. That said, there is barely any traffic here, so commute is mostly highway.

Well these results are for the R, but I got higher for the 200 GT. ( upto 48mpg on my 150 mile drive home after buying it, but normally 41 - 44 mpg average )

I have tried the economical driving with a few foot to the floor overtakes ( that's the nice bit ) but generally I get back 39.1mpg average with 380 miles per tank with 35 miles range left.

I did get 43.4mpg on my last fill up , over 441 miles per tank with 21 miles range left.

No where near the 50 odd per galleon Peugeot states, and I have only filled up four times since buying, but my overall average on the trip since buying ( as I set the B trip for my ownership figures, as I don't often keep the car too long, and as others have noted the trip freezes at 10000km some 6213 miles ) is showing 39.1 smiles per galleon, which is pretty damned good for a performance car, even if I do say so myself !

I have a feeling someone must have tampered with mine & remapped it to 360bhp, I struggle with @30-32 mpg, usually in the 20's. :eusa-think:

But it does go rather quickly when you lean on the fun pedal :dance:

I have had mine running in the mid 30's, but my commute is a 60 road with only a few places to overtake, and there is nearly always a FPO ( Fun Prevention Officer :law-policered: ! ) just to calm things down again - and thus it creeps up to around the 39mpg mark.

Now ask me again after doing the N'ring and it might be a tad lower :eusa-whistle: :D

Hmm It happened once to me but only with a cheap supermarket fuel and using in hillside, while Shell v Power up hills has much more Torquemada low down

I have only ever used Shell V Power Nitro, and always add half a bottle of RedX Petrol treatment to every full tank. I think I might just be a bit heavy on the right foot 8-)
