Yesterday was the first outing in my 1.5 DCi. Unfortunately it was a shopping trip!!!The whole round trip was 29 miles. 9 miles of that was in town traffic, long delays at lights and one delay at a level crossing. The car was in "Eco" mode and so was I. On arriving home I checked and found the car showed an average 57.2 mpg for the journey. And that with only a total mileage of 90 miles on the clock to date.
In my previous car, a Hyundai i30 TDi I achieved averages of 51 mpg. It looks as if the Captur will blow those figures out of the water!
What yesterday's journey brought home to me was how much time and fuel we all waste waiting at traffic lights etc. The stop-start feature alone should save us all loads of money.
