Re: A Eureka Moment on MPG...

After an... 'animated' discussion with my partner after her use of the car and the disappearing tank of fuel, we consulted the VOC app and the driver performance graph in the Sensus screen. I'm not going to pretend I know anything about which one is more accurate for basing your figures off, but my trips (according to the VOC figures) were using half the fuel my partners were. On the same day, on the same route, with similar loads (helping friends move), I used 0.6l, while she used 1.4l. - but the figures on the driver display suggested we were both getting the same mpg.

I know this doesn't alter any of the things shared above, just thought it was interesting how much a 'slight' difference in driving style can make to fuel consumption.
