Title: Impressed with Economy!
Post by: MT-RED on January 03, 2019, 13:52:41
So I only picked Hagrid (named by my son) up yesterday and hence today was my first work commute (64miles of A roads). It was a steady drive back this evening because of traffic but what a great result in terms of Economy!

Won't usually get this tho, when the roads accommodate a slightly heavier right foot  :D

My last i30 diesel annoyed me in just one respect. The instant economy display only goes to 50 mpg - it's something I have never understood.

My hybrid instant economy display goes up to 75 mpg which is more reflective of the car's actual performance.

Haha, you are not wrong. I really don't understand why they set it to 50 or even present it like they do for that matter. Having 2 screens, one for AVG and one for instant, which gives an exact number up to 99.9 would have been fine.

Can't say it will bother me much but it does seem a bit silly  :)
