I’ve only had it coming up to 2 weeks so not sure if it’s because it’s settling down, I get that it’s not going to super economical because of what it is, I just thought it would have been slightly higher figures, only really had it round short trips as of now, and a mix of mainly sensible driving mixed with goon mode when some spotty teenager flys up behind me in a shitty Ford with a dustbin for an exhaustNo mine is 2015 and I'm generally not driving slowly.
Like you said you can expect 35ish combined, they quote about 38.7 combined but you really want to realistically look at about 75% of that.
When you say "driving sensibly" what do you actually mean?
Long motorway trips or shorter trips?
Remember it still is a 290BHP car, its not made to be economical. It has pretty high mpg figures because they've put in stop/start and comfort laggy throttle mode to slow you down, as soon as you drive it on spool and put your foot down a bit its all lost.
Always wondered this, glad to hear it’s not absolutely necessary. Plus, the people that deliver lease cars like this will surely have their fun with it anyway!Don't waste you're time running it in that engine would have been trashed on a bench to see it makes required figures and then driven round like a mad man at the port, engines have moved on massively over the years and running in really isn't required, the engine will loosen off over time and mpg will increase a little
