Lots of posts about diesel mpg figures but few regarding 0.9 petrol versions. Current average mpg is 42.6 after completing a total of 1250 miles -mainly town or country driving-no motorways-with air con on most of time and Eco mode selected for the majority of journeys
Interesting to note that my figures based on fill up to first click are very close to the figures generated by the computer.
Hopefully the figure will get even better!
Previous car was a Fiat Punto Evo Eco model which boasted figures of 70 - 80 mpg but the average returned was 53 mpg over 15000 miles.
In my circumstance the option to purchase a petrol engine was a no brainer considering my mileage.
Really pleased with the car so far and touch wood I have not experienced any problems .
Ivory with black roof and ivory wheels is a real looker and attracts a fair bit of attention.Edited by: Rob

Hi Rob

Thanks for that - very interesting to hear about petrol mpg. I'm in the same position as you, don't do enough miles to warrant a diesel. Glad you're pleased with the car so far too. Really looking forward to getting mine!

Hi Mak71
You won't be disappointed - great little engine-best way is to drive in Eco mode for a while then switch it off. Not exactly hair on the back of the neck stuff but the difference in performance is quite something for a bit of a buzz!
Colour choice great -high quality paint application and a dream to clean.

Struggling to get above 38MPG here, with 800 miles gone. It's going up, but very slowly though, probably because it mainly just goes to work or to the shops and back.
Got my old Focus Econetic up to 48MPG and was hoping for similar from my Captur.

I'm on 4600m and almost entirely city driving and I've got 36mpg over the 6months and more recently 38mpg, I've done two long motorway journeys at 70mph on cruise control and i've got 55mpg on both, not quite what is quoted by Renault but still ok

Good improvement but you don't say what Captur you have ?

Everybody should be getting slightly better economy just now because not only are the engines gaining some miles but with the warm weather they should be getting up to the optimum operating temperature more quickly which will also help.Edited by: Perusal
