RE: Fuel Consumption
Yes! Also very interested in this, when I spoke to one of the guys at the Volvo dealer in Chiswick a couple of weeks ago, he said that his V60 has the same engine and is getting an average 48mpg.
Couple of things to note,
- he said his fuel economy was lower than average because of the regular city traffic
- As far as I can make out the V40 weighs about 300kg less than the V60
So I'm estimating 61-63mpg for my mix of 40%/60% city vs motorway driving which is about 80% of the 78.5mpg quoted.
Do you think that's reasonable?
