Clio 172 Miles per tank?



  Silver ph2/Mk2 Clio 172
Ok, I may be being paranoid but I am sure since I swapped out my Honda Civic Type R for a Clio 172 Ph2 I am putting juice in my car than I was with the Type-R yet both have the same size fuel tank.

I was going about 31 MPG in the Type-R and seem to be doing about 35-36 in the Clio according to the MPG computer.

I'm getting about 300 miles out of a tank from full to when the fuel light comes on.

What do you get out of yours?

Some reassurance or comparison would be great as I can't help but wonder if there is something might be wrong with the car I bought privately.

tbh with you if you take it really easy in any 172/182 you should in theory be able to get well in excess of 350 miles to a tank

My 182 is alot better than my Type R about 30 - 31 in the Civic and 35 - 37 in the Clio mixed driving :cool:
Cheers, thats a useful comparison, thought that MPG out of a 182 makes mine look poor in a 172, thought I know it all depends on how and where you drive.

From what I've just read on another post it sounds like the fuel light comes on after 40litres thus 10 litres still left in the tank.

Dont know fi that is true but that would mean there is still a 5th of a tank left, perhaps that fuel light just comes on a lot earlier than in the civic hence whi I feel i'm putting in fuel more often despite the better MPG

I can only get max 280 - 290 on a full tank that is with normal road driving and a bit of motorway. But i have to say i have emptied the tank from full in 150miles lol

I used to get about 300-315, however this wasn't to the light. With a manual check on the calc it was 36/7 mpg generally.

280-300 till I fill up.

I don't look at the fuel light, I just check the trip, it normally goes blank with about 30miles to go, so I'll only do another 20miles max as I've run out in the queue at the forecourt before!

You know where it's at :rasp:

CBA nancying around I'd rather just pay an extra tenner at the pumps and not be feathering around with twinkle toes!

no doubt I'll change my tune next week when I have no monies left...
