Re: MPG - Again :-)

Johnd, I’ve had mine since September. I did start to keep record of my mpg, started off in eco with super unleaded and averaged around the 29mpg. I’m now using ordinary unleaded (Tesco)in comfort mode and getting 28.4mpg. I’m doing approximately 200-230 miles of mainly short journeys between fill up...

Re: Cleaning!

If you read the manual it states you shouldn’t do anything other than washing in the first 12 months. Unfortunately I applied polish then Jetseal to it after I washed and “clayed”the car before I read this, can’t do any harm I suppose but probably undid whatever Volvo had applied!.

Re: Running In.

I too am of an age to remember when you had to “run in” a new car. I’ve had mine a few weeks now just reached 750 miles of the treatment, use only premium petrol so hopefully the car will repay my kindness in the years to come 👍. Loving every minute driving it , worth the long wait!.

Re: Servicing package

I recently enquired and was quoted £31 per month for the three year service schedule, think he said it was £300+ for first one, £400+ second then £300+ third! If you paid per year.

Re: MPG - Again :-)

Now into week 3, did a grand total of 223 miles mainly short journeys of between 2 to 10 miles with two of approximately 25 miles each. On fill up it took 37.02 litres so that equates to 27.3 mpg whilst car is showing 28.2 mpg. This is pretty much as I expected as I do tend to put it into eco mode e...
