Hi, all
Wondering what sort of MPG people are getting from their 2.0D (150).
We've currently got a Kia Sportage 1.7crdi with a heady 114bhp (woohoo!) and it's a horrible combination of mega-slow and thirsty.
We're lucky to get mid to low 30mpg in that in general motoring, it'll maybe creep up to 42mpg on a motorway cruise.
So if the Evoque is no worse than that, happy days!

We have a D150 manual and the current tankful is showing 37.3 mpg in general motoring.
The best we ever saw was 49 mpg on collection last december when we drove home over 200 miles, mainly motorway , with a good tailwind !
Those are car computed figures ,so no doubt a couple of mpg optimistic.......

My figures for the Sportage are computer readings too.
So it looks like the Evoque will be 'similar' at worst, possibly even better - that's good to know.
The Sporage is basically underpowered, 114bhp just isn't enough in that size of car and the throttle is often floored just to get along.

Computer figures are notoriously optimistic - the ONLY way to calculate a real world figure is the 'full tank - drive until empty - refill tank & calculate' method

I find real world mpg is about 2/3 mpg less than the car tells you.

If that's mostly in town traffic then fine - motorway miles will always be better

Correct and stands to reason.

My 2.2 gets 39 mpg on a journey somewhere but settles down to about 35 overall.
Is the 2.2 an older/less efficient engine than the 2.0?
What you're getting sound acceptable, so any more out of the 2.0 will be fine.

Yes the 2.2 was used for the first Evoques before the 2.0 came along. The 2.2 is a Ford engine as far as I know. I’m retired now and just use it for going to what seems like the Drs, the hospital and the golf course so don’t care about mpg any more.

IMO the 2.2 was a much better engine, fairly bomb proof if serviced properly.

I've just filled it up and the car said 37.7mpg.
My calculator says 35.2 mpg ,so about 7% optimistic.

Best not to worry too much about MPG, it will spoil your enjoyment of your car.
Mrs M has a Golf R that does between 12 and 38 MPG depending on how you drive-just enjoy it, if you are too worried get a Clio!

My other car is a 200bhp RCZ I’m used to mpg figures starting with a 1, must start driving that one with a gentler touch on the loud pedal.

Blimey.
I had a +200bhp Alpina BMW D3 with 450nm of torque.
It rarely dipped under 40mpg, even when really thrashed hard.

I think mine can do that kind of figure, but I do tend to drive it like I stole it & I regularly hit the 18 ish mpg. I think theres no point having a point & squirt kind of car & then driving it like you can’t afford the petrol. (Although going through the front tyres at @ £200 a corner does get kind of tiresome 🤔😁).
I am trying to be a bit more grown up in the Evoque.

We've not bought it with economy in mind, just nice to know it doesn't look like it'll be any worse than the Sportage.
