PSA have released the next batch of "real World" figures, as expected, some of these figures come nowhere near the official MPG's achieved in the NEDC test cycle, further highlighting how flawed the test is.
Yes, an 88 mpg claim proving to be 57 mpg at the pumps - what i'd expect.
Maybe my Hyundai was unlucky - i was furious when the car i bought on the back of a 94 mpg claim delivered 60 mpg.
The Prius has a mid 80s claim and a mid 60s reality. If i hadnt already had my eyes opened to the flawed economy reporting system then i may have been very cross with Toyota, ruining my enjoyment of a great car.
the i20 had other issues though - a problem with the engine itself that Hyundai are clueless about, and being very bland and not comfortable for any length of time.
Ben it's a reality for everyone, literally nobody gets the claimed MPG, or anywhere near them. Extreme hypermiling might get you close, or better as I did once or twice, but that's just not how people drive unless you're 104 and it's a Sunday!
I'm pleased they are compiling real World data, and I'm pleased they are changing the test next year.
