I filled up the tank this morning for the third time since I filled it up on the day I picked the car up.
The car was at 951 miles when I filled it up.

Over the 3 tank's full, my average brim to brim measurementis 30.32 mpg, with a high of 30.93 mpgand a low of 29.9 mpg. The trip computer in the car is pretty close to that figure as well, giving a figure of 29.9 mpg.

That's with mainly short trips in and around the local towns and a few longer journeys on A/B roads that are mostly winding and hilly.

So, given my driving profile, I'm quite happy with that. It should improve over time, and with the better weather to come, I'll likely be doing a few more longer trips.

I've only had one DPF regeneration cycle in the 951 miles, and that was at a little over the 600 mile mark. I'll be interested to see where the next regen cycle happens.

I reckon that`s pretty good for a 184 SE Auto !!. Mines showing around 28 mpg for mixed urban b roads, and a couple of longer trips, and my cars a Manual Gearbox model. Highest mpg I`ve achieved, was about 38/39, on an 80 mile round trip to Leicester and back, mostly on the A5. As I said on another post, I`m having DPF regen`s every 400 miles so far.

The MPG I'm getting is very similar to what I got from my Volvo XC70 when it was new. By the time I handed it back,I was getting around 33 mpg on average.
So let's hope the Antara will improve a bit as timepasses and the mechanicals start to loosen up a bit.

Is there a way to turn off all these figures about fuel consumption ?

I absolutely detest these figures constantly being displayed and changing throughout each journey.


Like many, I bought the Antara for a purpose and not because of its fuel consumption and the constant reminder of it is a definite irritant

I would prefer it if you just had the temperature,date, time and fuel range on display. The average consumption is only of any interest to me when I fill up the tank. The instantaneous is annoying, but it's the only way to detect a DPF regeneration while you're driving.
So while I don't like these numbers either, until they come up with a better way of notifying you when a DPF regeneration is taking place, I'll put up with them.

Can't remember if the Exclusive has the tyre pressure monitor, but if it does, you could always change the display to that screen.

Unfortunately there is no tyre pressure monitor on the Exclusiv range but I suppose I could always find some type of wallpaper and attach it over the screen so that it looks like a "reversing camera"



Now I wonder what or who I could use ?

I tend to work out MPG from full to full.I have the SE Nav with the readout but, (call me old fashioned), never take much notice of the readout
