Considering the size and power of the V6 engine it does seem reasonable on gas. It is something I will miss when my F-Pace gets replaced by the SVR in the coming months. bigger Fuel tank in the SVR I'm looking forward to, but not the expected MPGs. From the RR Sport SVR, I'm expecting something in the 16 combined, maybe 19 or 20 on the highway. Even with the 21 Gallon tank, I may be filling up just as much!I am getting 20 mpg in my S and I drive like my hairs on fire. I got about 12 in my QX50. Nice engine.
I am about 6 months in to owning a 30t prestige (Black on black BTW!! ) and I'm getting around 11.3ltrs/100kms (approx 21 miles/gallon) The fuel tank is not very big so it feels like I'm filling it up every other day!
The Jag website says I should be getting a combined economy of 7.7 l/km (30 m/g) !!!! Am i doing something wrong or are they doing something wrong!
Anyone else have a similar engine for comparison... Driving mostly around outer suburbs of town so no real heavy traffic... but I guess the S mode does get used a bit.. grrrr
Actually having driven other Jaguar's and being way too familiar with limp mode as well as having had the experience of several failed Chevy/GMC fuel pumps, I don't use Eco-Mode because it FREAKS ME OUT!!!!Most others disagree with *ECO-MODE* because of the LACK of ENGINE PERFORMANCE !!!
I disagree with it , because of it's EFFECT on the SYSTEMS we LOVE to use on a daily basis !!!
So YES folks , NO MORE *ECO-MODE* for GRVR !!!>0
I get what you're saying in terms of 'worry about gas mileage' and i guess its just the way it is. it wont change my driving style either!Question (and not to be a jerk): Why buy a car like this and worry about gas mileage? That's what the diesels are made for. The petrol engines in these cars are meant to be "driven" in a spirited way. It is a performance SUV.
I refuse to drive this car in ECO mode unless my fuel light comes on, nor does it ever occur to me to think about how often I fill my tank (once per week).
Sorry for ranting
Actually, they kinda DO tell you. At least, they do in the owner's manual that I received....but what they don't tell you is...
To Clarify: I should mention that my numbers are for the 20d.BTW, for those interested, I've kept stats on 43 fill-ups and, for those, I've found that the dash gauge reports an average of 3.67 MPG higher than actual (where actual is manually tracking gallons used to fill up the car again and miles travelled since last fill-up).
