Just completed a 500 mile round trip over the last 2 days. Devon-Northolt-Portsmouth-Oxford-Devon kept the revs at 2500 and below as running the engine in. Managed to average 58.5 mpg could only get max of 38 from my 2 litre Volvo so very pleased with my Stepway :)

youngy_315 I think the 0.9 Tce in his vehicle driven is a bit of a giveaway, :rolleyes: still its a lot of miles when you consider it's still being run in, book say's you can expect peak mpg after 1800 miles on mine, what does it say for the 0.9 Tce. :D

I'm getting around 58 mpg on my Logan Tce 90. Didn't believe the computer read-out so brim checked it...yup...58 mpg. Driving steady, eco mode, cruise control. Just retired so ain't in a rush to be anywhere.

About 50.9 mpg, that's alright for probably mixed motoring.

Right who is nicking my petrol...

I have had 2 brand new Stepway Tce's since May this year and have not got mpg like that in any of the 2 of them.

Think I will have to go and see the doctor next week and ask him to test my body for iron, I must have far too much iron which is effecting my mpg.

Get them to check for Iron in your right foot Nessi, might be a bit heavy. :D

I'm a bit more than surprised at my Logan's fuel consumption. Wondering if Euro 6, Stop Start makes a difference. I've got used to eco mode. Found it a drag to start with but, like I said, as a retiree, I'm in no rush.

You would need a VW to get better mpg Les. :p

I know a lot of people with VW diesels and I'm pretty sure I'm happier with my motor than they are with theirs right now.

Filled car to the brim did 501 miles didn't use eco mode computer showing 120 miles to empty and fuel gauge showing 2 blocks. Filled up again on returning to Devon took 38.7 litres. So computer showing average fuel consumption of 58.5 mpg was pretty accurate. Will be interested to see the mpg after engine has been run in and I use the full rev range.

For comparison if I drive eco on my commute I get 70mpg with the 1.5dci, if I add motorway in the mix its 64mpg if eco isnt on its 58mpg.

Excellent engines.

Is that the Shell petrol that claims to give you more MPG.

My whole body must be full o iron nae just my foot with the mpg I get, The best I have achieved on a long run ( 300 mile round trip ) is 46mpg.

I have found the euro6 with the start stop slightly more economical, The best mpg I got from the non euro6 was 44.5mpg whilst I have got 46mpg from the euro6 ( both Tce90 new this year )

Take it back Nessi and get them to look for your lost mpg. :rolleyes:

There are so many factors involved in obtaining reasonable fuel economy. The best thing about living in Northampton is how easy it is to get out of the place and onto halfway decent roads. Sixty per cent of the 800 miles I've driven in the Dacia have been longish runs on dual carriageways and motorways. That still leaves 40 per cent on town roads, but...I have the luxury of choosing non peak traffic periods and maintaining momentum. Half a century of commercial driving, much of it self employed, taught me the benefits of a light right foot. I wasn't expecting much from an 898cc, 3 cylinder, but the Tce 90 is proving to be pretty amazing and it hasn't even loosened up yet. I did consider the diesel but, even back in May, when I ordered my Logan, the writing was on the wall for the future of that particular fuel. Speaking of which, alfitz, yup I'm using only Shell V-Power. Too early for that to make much difference right now I guess.

Well in Feb we are in the market for a second car, I've been put off the Duster with all the whinges about it. The Stepway conversely gets universal praise from its drivers so the question is TCE or DCi.

I've not driven a TCE yet though.
