Default MPG!

I was used to a series 2A with 2.25l petrol engine, I managed about 18 MPG on road, I hired a S3 with diesel engine and made about 24MPG on road. What sort of MPG should I assume from a Defender 90 or 110 on road? Are they all diesel?

US gallon is smaller than an Imperial gallon so our numbers will be different. With my NAS 90 with a V8 I would get 12ish MPG. With my 300Tdi powered 110 I get about 18-20 MPG around town and 22-28 on the highway depending on speed and terrain.

Whatever the size of your gallon 25 vs 12 means that diesel will win! Unless I can find a hirer in Vegas I've got a lot of positioning miles to do.

My V8 trucks almost all get 12. Maybe 15-16 on highway. I'm getting just about 20 mpg in the 110 with 300Tdi on a good tank. I think I get about 22 on freeway. But Not sure, I need more trips!!

The UK gallon is approx 20% bigger than the US gallon. But the UK gallon is crazy expensive in comparison.

My last fill up in my 1991 200 Tdi 110 was 28 MPG in US gallons. I never got below 28 MPG the whole time I owned the truck. I ran B20 and regular diesel fuel. Still sad I had to sell the truck because I sure miss the great fuel mileage I was getting for such a heavy truck.

Seems like your mileage is improving as more Km is added.
I see an upward trend in your data points.

The last stuff was mostly highway miles. The bad numbers are mostly off road miles. There was 10000 km single trip last summer.

I put this together for another thread a while back. I have not been keeping up on it because I'm using Fuelly on my phone, but it is interesting to see what others are getting: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

I'm going long distance this weekend. Although it will be a lot of hills, I should be able to stop and fill up at different spots on the gauge, and get a really good sense of exactly what mileage I get on the highway. So far, my gauge is very accurate -- 1/2 tank really does mean I have 10 gallons left.
