MPG thread!

So being the NV200 is a eco labelled van. Lets talk MPG.

No matter if its Diesel or Petrol.

Simply state your engine, hp and current mpg.

So mine is

1.5 dci 89hp DPF - roughly getting 45-47mpg.

UK 2012 NV200 1.5 Dci SE 89 Hp (feel the power!)

I have a 12 plate 89bhp diesel model and with roughly 150 kg in the back of tools and materials I get between 38 - 40 mpg which I must say is totally rubbish.I trade in my old t reg Vauxhall combo with 123000 on the clock which carried at least another 60kg in weight plus ladder on the roof constantly and it gave me 45 mpg.
Just waiting for my next service which is Feb 14 and then it is gone this as got to be the worst mpg van I have ever owned.

Welcome SparkyPablo, Its a funny one........ My own experiences are not great, but I think we all know how Nissan get 58 mpg, 30 miles per hour 5th gear on a zero resistance rolling road in a lab, which is not reflecting real world mpg!

Just to add to the mix I installed a bluespark tuning box and gained 5-7mpg getting me closer to the magic 50mpg mark, but I have just moved back to London from the free flowing countryside and now the stop start traffic has dropped me back down to low 40s! Amazing change!

It also seem the DPF models are worse, is yours DPF equipped?

I've got the 2.0 litre gas (petrol for our friends across the pond) engine with the CVT transmission. I am averaging 24mpg. It's only a slight improvement to the sprinter van but wish the U.S. would have gotten the diesel engine. I'll gladly take 38-45mpg any day!

We do not have the option of a manual transmission or anything else but the 2.0 litre engine at this time. The NV200 is new to the USA for MY2013

1.5 dci 89hp DPF: 43-46mpg Lightly loaded, mostly open road cruising .

I can live with that, but was expecting better.

Thanks for the welcome MudFlap being a complete newbie what is DPF Model and is the bluespark tuning box one that plugs in instead of a perm remap.
Before I forget does anyone know where the diagnostic socket is on the NV200.
Also after running this van for nearly a year my mpg is now averaging aroud 35-38 mph took it to Nissan and was greeted with blank expression faces and the perfect there is nothing that can be checked as it is all done by computer oh and have you tried a diesel additive, amazing a 12reg van needing additive after 18k miles.
Regards

HI Sparky, DPF model is the Diesel Particulate Filter - it seems they steel 10% mpg! But these have to be fitted to meet euro 5 regulation from what I have observed the older NV's without DPF seem better on fuel!

Yes Bluespark box is the one which plugs in - not a permanent remap.

OBD2 (diagnostic) port is to the right of the steering wheel, below the cup holder. The card holder panel pulls off to reveal the socket.

Dealers will always come up blank on MPG figures, I remember my other halfs Mini cooper Diesel quoted 80's but was lucky to see high 50's which we just lived with! After BMW said it had no faults!

Hope this helps.

I have the same and get around 24mpg but if going around 55mph, I have made it up over 30mpg. Keep in mind that the mpg average display is really accurate. Several times I have filled up at 9.9 to 10.1 gallons and drove around 240 miles and the display will say 28mpg average so it makes it look a bit better than reality.
