learoy said:anyone got the 163 manual im trying to work out what it mpg would be compared to a 1.7 ix35.i know they get about 42 on average so was wandering if i could expect 35mpg from the antara.can get a really good price on a diamond antara £1000 cheaper than the ix35 so ive worked it out on them figures that £1000 of fuel would make 3 years at 10,000 miles for me to break even.
When a car is new, the engine and transmission are tight. This means there is more frictionin the moving parts,which can reduce the MPG of the car. As the car ages, it loosens up a bit leading to less friction and may lead to an improved MPG.HugoRune said:Just curious, but I notice that there seems to be a general consensus that mpg figures will improve as the mileage increases. I am not suggesting this is wrong, but I don't understand why this might be the case.
