Diesel consumption
 
For anyone this may be of interest I am getting around 39 to 40 mpg here in the UK driving sensibly on single carriageways - country roads.
I've no doubt on motorways I would be getting high 40s.
This is with a manual gear box.
It has surpassed my expectations.

Sorry forgot to say Compass Ltd with 2.2 litre Mercedes diesel engine and 6 speed manual gear box.

It's settled then. I'll move to the UK so I can get a Patriot with decent mpg and save money.

I have the same model here in Ireland. On a recent trip of 200 miles I averaged 42mpg which I was more than happy with

dang... I wish we had the diesel here... better fuel economy, better torque for off roading... its lame we do not, would have gladly paid for it.

My EVIC says I'm 210 miles to empty with a freshly topped off tank. A 200 mile trip without a stop for gas sounds risky.

Not at all worried. I get 500km / 300 miles between fills of diesel

I just did a short highway trip from fresno to Exeter and back via Visalia. Started with 40 city miles, got back with 170ish, probably 90% highway on the additional miles....so about 30% city, 70% highway. Average is up to a whopping 19mpg.

louthmale 08-15-2013 03:12 AM

Wow 19mpg is low. Although if its any consolation our fuel prices are way higher than yours. I'm paying €1.50 (approx 2 usd )per litre for diesel and petrol is around €1.60 per litre.

I just managed 700km from my first full tank. Thought I was going to get 800.

Andyenobs - is that uk gallons or us gallons. My 2012 compass only has the option to show Litres per 100km or US. I imagine if I choose US the mpg reading will be miles per us gallon which is not the same as uk gallon.
