    MPG?

    Not that it matters one way or the other, but I'd be curious to know what 997 folks have seen.

    New vs. broken in
    997 vs 997S
    Tip vs 6 spd

    Thanks

    Re: MPG?

    The good news is that fuel economy improves as the car is broken in. My numbers now are about 10% better than when new. Currently the car has 4000km

    My average fuel economy on a combination city/highway is about 11.8L/100km. Reserve comes on after about 440km

    Straight highway at 120km/h - 9.8L/100km

    With sport mode on and driving in a spirited fashion, 15L/100km

    Re: MPG?

    1Gunner,

    You are correct: It matters-NOT! What matters is not MPG (Miles Per Gallon)-or kilometers per liter, but instead MPH (Miles Per Hour) and MPD (Miles Per Day).

    Re: MPG?

    I took a little drive and heres my results

    Re: MPG?

    Good Grief, 68MPH average, and with the engine off!

    Re: MPG?

    Yes..how did you get to that MPH average speed? track?

    Re: MPG?

    17,4 liters/100km. This is my average fuel consumption with 3200 kms. I did only 1000 kms break-in, and since then ,I have been driving the 997s very hard. I think fuel consumption is too high.( My average fuel consumption in my Boxster S was 14,2 liters/100 kms for 25,000 kms)

    Re: MPG?

    Raul,
    Seems high. I'm at 13.5 litres/100km after 1000km

    Re: MPG?

    I'm about 27mpg on a long journey which I think is okay. Around town (which unfortunately is where I do most of my driving) I get more like 10-12mpg....

    Re: MPG?

    after 2500km 16.5/100km the 996 3.4 needed only 13.2/100km

    find it little too high

    Great trip stint
