  1. High fuel consumption in "hybrid" mode, low e-range

    Other EV Makes and Models
    Hi Everyone, I was testing my Ampera in this nice and cold weather how much is the mpg using it in only the "hybrid" mode. I did 65 miles in total and got 21-22mpg which, in my view, is sh*t. Though the heating is on max mode with a temp set of 23C-25C and usually doing only 4-8 miles in one go...
  2. What mpg are people seeing on Ioniq hybrids please

    General EV Discussion
    Hi all, looking for some advice please. I already have the full electric Ioniq, and I love it. Racked up >53k miles in 18 months. Now the wife wants the hybrid (not plug in) version. I'm doing my sums etc but what sort of MPG are people seeing for someone who does limited mileage around town...
  3. GTE Actual Performance

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi guys, Thinking of maybe buying a nearly new GTE. My heart is telling me to go for it, but my head is saying they are expensive and I could get a "premium" brand for the same money - although the GTE comes with a lot of features that bump the price of a similarly specced "premium" brand WAY...
  4. Post your MPG

    Volkswagen Passat GTE
    Mpg has been discussed in a few threads so why not have one dedicated to it?! It would be interesting to see comparisons of people's experience of real world mpg for specific trips. To make the comparisons meaningful though, we'd need to know: - battery range when setting off and when arriving...
  5. Making the change to a GTE

    Ice Breakers
    First post...... I currently drive a 330D XDrive Tourer and get around 45mpg during my weekly commute, for a 55L (£66) tank i get around 500 miles. I'm doing 54 miles a day round trip (5 days a week) and would have access to charge at work, so.........what should i expect MPG if i charge at...
  6. Getting to grips with Outlander PHEV

    Ice Breakers
    Hi all, I've had my 2014 Misubushi Outlander PHEV for 6 days now and the wife and I absolutely love it. (The dogs not so much as they're a bit wary of the electrically operated tailgate, but I'm sure they'll get used to it) We've mainly just done short journeys and very pleased with the...
  7. 330e Mileage

    General BMW EV Discussion
    Recently acquired a 330e and have been very disappointed by the milege achieved. A full charge to 100% shows at most 16 miles range, with about 8 actually achieved. MPG is averaging less than 40mpg. It's been back to the garage but the dealer claims it's working normally. Far from the 25 miles...

    JUST ADDED A QUICK POLL .. please please tick the box. Thx (y) ----------------------------------------------------------------- Anyone tried to export your excel data in the wonderful Car-Net Web app recently? Seems like someone at VW has tidied the XLS sheet up a little, but a bit pointless...
  9. True MPG equivalent cost of GTE

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Clearly the figures on the screen double count so are meaningless (if you use both fuels)... so I've worked out the equivalent cost of the electric (@13.5 p per kWh) in "petrol cost" and on my first half tank doing about half miles Elec I'm getting an equivalent cost of 55mpg. Do I get a prize...

  11. BMW 330e - first impressions

    General BMW EV Discussion
    I have just taken delivery of a 330e, a car I first test drove in March alongside the i3. I was impressed with the car but, at the time, I thought the i3 was the better bet (it is even more impressive in many ways). I also considered a Lexus IS300h, a completely different kind of hybrid. Very...
  12. Long run MPG

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Hi all, Last weekend I had to go to Galway, some 210 miles away, then back the next day. I left a bit late so while I was not speeding (officer), I wasn't hanging about either. In the north the national speed limit applies then in the south it becomes 120 Kph, or 75 Mph. I did use hold to keep...
  13. C350e Electric Miles Traveled

    General Mercedes EV Discussion
    Hi everyone, I took delivery of my c350e earlier this week and was wondering if anybody knew how to find the menu that shows you how many miles you have traveled on electric alone? I had searched through the system but can't find it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Tom

  15. mpg

    BMW i3
    i've seen 400+ mpg quoted for the i3. Best my Rex can do, £ for £, is 120mpg. The unit price of electricity in N Ire is 18p inc vat; ~50% more expensive than E&W; but even allowing for that, where do BMW get the 400+ figure from...a solar panel user?
  16. EV Range when fully charged?

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hello all. Joined the ranks of GTE owners on the 2nd January and impressed so far but puzzled by some things about the car. I know I should read the manual more....but have you seen the size of it! I appreciate that since collection it has be wet cold and miserable (I live in the North West by...
