Recommended Posts

been checking the MPG over the last couple of months of my little gay blue swift 08 model...........i horse the motor every now and then and use it as a daily drive to the shops and stuff..

53 MPG.............quite pleased with that..........

im sure if i was lightfooted and on longer runs it would be quite a bit more..

im useing the 99 octane fuel...

Where do you fill up ditchy?

local bp station on brundall rounderbout....not cheap either

 

it works out that i put in 17 litres and get 200 miles...or thereabouts ...thats from the fuel light coming on to fuel light coming on

 

 

200 div by 17= then times 4.54=53 odd mpg

We both run little Suzuki's, wife's 2019 Ignis is returning average of 62mpg (1.2 Dualjet).My 2019 Swift zt boosterjet returns 53mpg (1lt turbo).Love Suzuki engine especially the 1.2 Dueljet.

i like the engine ...mainly because it hasnt a bloody timing belt to worry about...it has a self adjusting timing chain....real no brainer......

I've always used shell and it gives better mpg in any vehicle I've had, never used BP, 53 odd to the gallon can't be bad though 👍

Does it actually do any better with the 99RON fuel?

i try and use good higher octane fuel as it burns clearner and keeps the valves cleaner at lower speeds....ive seen the difference it makes on enjine parts....its no big deal the engines are desighned to use lower spec fuel...........proberly me ...allowing my mind to be played with by the fuel companies..............

when i had the last of my new discos i always used a fuel addertive for the TD5............christ what a difference it used to make ...but that was desiel...

Thanks. I've tried high octane petrol and high cetane diesel in various cars and never seen much difference in MPG or performance, probably because none of my cars have been designed for the top spec stuff (even my old Porsche!) I still treat them to the odd half tank every now and then, can't hurt to give their innards a bit of a clean.

the best fuel was always high octane/cetane with pleanty of lead in it to stop it combusting to qiuck or BTDC..........

You might find cheaper fuels are E10 (10% ethanol) fuel it has about 3% less energy than straight Petrol which might affect your figures, I think we pay the same tax on it though🙄

The ultra high compression non turbo 2ltr Skyactiv petrol engine in my Mazda is rated at 120bhp in every market including America where the standard fuel is 87 octane. BBR who tune Mazdas, dyno tested the engine with 99 octane at 138bhp. Believe me the difference is noticeable in both performance and mpg. I can get over 55 mpg with careful driving.

I have a vitara with a 1.6 non turbo petrol engine,it returns around 46 mpg around town,bit more on the motor way,i love it comfy to drive quite nippy,lots of room for passengers and guns.

Mrs has a 63’ plate swift running on supermarket fuel that returns about 47mpg however she does spend a lot of time in the early morning/evening bumper to bumper Traffic. Lovely to drive and good spec but serious lack of omph. My old Saab 93 1.9 Tid returns about 52- 53 mpg on BP ultimate which is 6/7 mpg more than It did on Sainsbury’s fuel, feels a bit more sprightly too.
