Well, yeah. I do 30k plus a year. I wouldn't say I specifically 'need' a diesel. But I do need more than 40mpg, combined, and preferably more like 50.

If a petrol car of sufficient size (ie, small estate) could manage that then I'd prefer it. But with the exception of stuff like the Toyota pious - they can't.

Very impressive average mileage............ I have to drive carefully on M/Ways & A Roads to get that sort of consumption. 
My mean av consumption so far (9,000 m ) is 47 mpg with mostly "urban" driving & around 25% M Way/A Road.  Could be a lot worse from what I've read on here though.

Tried swapping to a "supermarket" brand (Sainsburys)............... very interesting results over around 500 miles.  Cheaper to buy @ an average 2p per litre saving... BUT..... I got around 4mpg less !! thus leaving me about 45p per gallon worse off financially Cry

My usual fuel is Shell "standard" diesel ( occasionally the BP equivalent)

Hard to tell if there is any performance difference as I'm not an "enthusiastic" driver these days but it "felt" as though the car ran a little sweeter on my usual Shell fuel.

My advice.... stick to a "premium" brand  Shell/BP/Esso etc...

Happy new Year to all 

Dick.

LOL

Mine gets "whatever". Asda, Tesco, Morrisons. The only time it gets BP or Shell or whatever is when I'm low on fuel and there isn't a supermarket available.

There's certainly differences between "Supermarket" & premium branded fuel however the only difference I have noticed in the diesel fuel is the better consumption ( although only a short test in the QQ as it's the first diesel motor that I have had to buy my own fuel for)

With petrol there are very noticeable differences that make a very good case for using the branded fuel doesn't matter that much I suppose if you run a "budget run around"  (polite name for old banger Wink )

In my case I have a BP garage very close & 2 Shell one's that I drive past most days, so easy for me to buy branded

My 2.0L petrol is doing a lot more shorter trips now and I'm lucky to get the AVG reading above 27 MPG (which probably means the actual is more like 25)........

Will have to use the Mrs More economical Golf 2.0L Diesal more often........

I have to say that most road tests do not bare out the manufacturer's claims.

As many have found like myself when we do the Manual calculation....of course their road tests would have them changing up or down as soon as the 'change gear arrow' comes up, a lot comes down to how you actually drive and and what sort of roads.....

For sure. The Offical fuel consumption figures are only a very, very rough guide to what you'll actually get. But I've achieved anywhere between about 70 and 90+ percent of what they claim for "combined". The bit I really don't understand is that I've had some cars when you can drive them any way you like and they achieve consistent results, whether you're ringing it's neck or ticking it along (often the case with smaller Petrol engines). But other cars where once decent run through the gears (to overtake, for example) can drop the average by 10 percent on a 50 mile drive. I've certainly noticed that the turbo diesel cars start to use a LOT more fuel when you bring the turbo in. none moreso than the Golf I have for a while which did 55mpg at 50 mph and 40 mpg at 60 mph (because the turbo kicked in in top gear at about 55mph).

But if I tickle my Qashqai along I can just manage 40mpg, provided the road and traffic aren't too bad. But give it the beans and i'll be averaging 20mpg over any length of journey.

On a recent 2-day trip to the UK (so 90% motorway top speed cruising) I got 9.3l/100km (30.37mpg).
Flippin awful!
The overall average for 18,500km (11,562m) in 2.5 years is 12.5l/100km (22.6mpg). Thank goodness most of my journeys are only short distances. If you click on the fuel consumption link in my footer, you can see the total history. There seem to be a few other owners of the same model in Europe who have similar poor consumption and they all have relatively low mileage for the ages of their vehicles..

I doubt it as the revs drop  to 900rpm.

Have had mine up to 39mpg on a long Mway drive to Cornwall and wales but am doing a lot of shorter journeys so I'm not really disappointed with the results as comparable with my old Zafira. I don't do a lot of mileage and expect to hit around the 15k mark in March when the Car will be 2 years old and on track with my PCP Plan....

My daily commute is 106 km and I have tested the fuel economy the last 5 days since I bought the car by setting the cruise control to 120 km per hour . My best consumption is 20.3 km per liter (57 mpg) and I hope to do better.
Bearing in mind that Nissan advertises 26 km per liter in the manual for this model , I do not think It done badly.

Wow, that is impressive! Clap  Was it down hill, with a tail wind, driving at a constant 55mph? Wink

Is that graph straight from the QQ?  Looks like a cool feature if it is!

Although seeing two lines under the 30mpg mark, looks like you have been doing a mix of driving!

Edit:  And perhaps the real challenge is to get all the way to that 90mpg line!!! Wink

My 40 mile commute this morning (but in the reverse direction) showed 72.2mpg on the car Generally for my work commute the car will show in the region of 63mpg for the journey into work (Swindon-Bristol) and 66mpg for the return commute home, slipstreaming seems to make a fair bit of difference to the fuel economy (as is to be expected!) but because we live in such a f**kwit litigious society where people can't think for themselves and always want to apportion blame to everyone else for their actions apart from their stupid selves then I recommend you do NOT try this at home kids!

If it's worth anything, the car had just me in it, 3/4 tank of fuel and no other luggage.

I just beat my own record .

26.6 km/lit that is 75.1 mpg

I drove to my local model airfield with my model plane in my boot hence I drove very carefully not to damage it .
