Finally reached the 200mpg lifetime, The car is on 27,000 miles currently.
Next the 250 target which may be possible by winter.
The 32-35 mile round trip is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel for electric miles week in week out. Sometimes a bit further at the weekend ;)

Not in our temporary Mercedes C350e ;). Might have a posh badge but no way would I swap my Ampera for it :)

I was stuck on around 86 lifetime mpg with no destination charging, now 40 odd months later, using a charger near work, and 87,000 miles it eventually climbed to 250+ lifetime (Imperial) then next was 250+ (US) now I am at 0.9l/100 km, keep going it can be done.

That has to be one of the worst lifetime we have seen! It clearly was never charged. At least that means the EVSE shouldn't have had much wear :)

With that mileage it will take a long time to improve. I trust you have reset a trip meter so you can see what you have achieved so far? My Trip A is still set from new and is close to my lifetime. I use Trip B for longer journeys to see overall cost.

Oh and my lifetime is 227 today BTW :p

Ouch, poor Ampera, I'm afraid even doing 10,000 miles on electric only will only improve that to 49 average. Set a trip and use that as your own usage.

Mines upto 208 today as it happens, but it's a lower mileage car with plenty of EV miles. just over 28,000 now

Mine was on about 36 mpg when I got it at 39k. I've put 22k on it since then at an average of about 80 mpg and it's now showing 48.9 mpg. I've done mostly electric miles this summer so it's ticking up quite nicely at the moment! It goes up in increments of 0.3 mpg.

Bought at 60,000, had 67MPG.

5,500 miles later, and too many long business trips and I've just broken the 70MPG lifetime. Commuting I'm nearly entirely EV, it's the 400 mile round trips that are killing my lifetime MPG improvement.

Update. Bought with 92.7 lifetime, at 44K, now after another 21K lifetime is at 111. Still commuting all electric but do some longer trips so I still use £20 fuel each month too. Since I bought the car and zeroed trip B, my MPG is 145. Impressive car.

14k miles in mine since October, reset trip AA whe I bought it... Lifetime up from 77 to 86.7 and still rising. Charge as often as possible but rarely at home during the week as we are totally off grid and have limited battery/solar capacity so I charge every day at work.

When my Ampera had a major leccy fault, the dealer repaired it and in the process my lifetime mpg got reset, which suited me as was shortly after I`d bought it with 57 mpg avg. So you might be able to ask your servicer to reset it if you really want to.

I'm half tempted, mine is somewhere around 70 and I don't do enough miles per annum to significantly change that. But it feels a bit like cheating.

If the car's changed ownership, then I think it's perfectly fair & sensible to reset it. After all, it's your driving pattern you're interested in, not some meaningless mish-mash of unknown previous + yours. Go, on, reset it. It makes sense, as you'll have accurate info. What you have now is garbage. Period. Clean it out..

Having had mine cleaned from the previous owner's 57 mpg, I've been around 82 mpg for a couple of years, but am now starting to find chargers in car-parks I can actually use, so it's now crept up to 85.9 after Saturday's 1st day trip to Fully Charged, and on the 2nd day I did a 59.9 mile trip & it's now 86.2, my best ever lifetime! Nerdy & Geeky? Yes, but as an Engineer I'm interested in this info.
