It will be more accurate to a brimfull to brimfull test to ensure you get an accurate reading I think.
My wife has a 1.4 manual and it averages 46 mpg.

That's just cars for you. We've got the 1.6 stick it can be anywhere between 32mpg and the mid-50s, depending on weather and usage. Winter's been bad with a lot of short hops dragging it down.

I misread that and thought that you were getting 13 mpg. I thought "he must have someone running behind with a hose siphoning the fuel off"

Totally agree with others that the full-tank to full-tank test is the best way, since fuel gauge readings aren't anything like accurate, plus surely it's only worth comparing similar engines/transmissions?
<br style="line-height: 1.4;">I have a 57-reg 1.6 petrol automatic and get high-30's to high-40's mpg depending on the type of journey. I'm more than happy with that!

I have a 2012 N-Tec+ Auto and the mileage is awful after my Micra 1.2 N-Tec





Peter

You should be achieving 40 - 47 mpg, depending on engine size. How have you assessed your mpg with your Note. Was your Micra an automatic.
Bear in mind, the Note is a heavier car than a Micra.

Auto's will do slightly less mpg than a manual version.

Just had the first proper motorway run in my 1.5d. Got stuck in the M42 jams going round Brum Monday morning then down the M5 to Cornwall sitting around 72/75mph using the cruise control. Three adults on board and Fuelly says 59.3mpg for the trip. That'll do nicely

Hi there, I bought a 1.4 Acenta last August, and am consistently getting 4.5-6mpg less than that shown on the dash. I do a simple sum. 30 litres in (at the quarter-tank mark), clock the miles when it gets there again. multiply by 1.5 to get 45 litres, then divide by 10 to get miles. Whatever the conditions/road/my driving/litreage, the result is always the same. 48mpg looks good, 42mpg not quite so! Can anyone explain this anomaly for me please?

The reading on the dash is what I would call "indication only".

Mine says 36.8, yet the calculated mpg from known miles and known fuel is actually 31.

Nissan think that there are 1600 yards in a mile and 5 litres in a gallon.

Personally, I leave the display on trip mileage and top up every 150 miles indicated: 140 miles true, (that is about as much as I can afford in one week)

Hi,

09 1.6 teckna auto petrol - mixed urban, country lanes and 60 mph A roads - seems to be averaging 33.3 mpg according to computer readout. Yes I have a heavy right foot too!

Pretty much the same as my previous auto1.6 Note SE.

Trust this helps.

Did a trip to Manchester from South Wales, up and down the hills until we got to staffordshire and the mpg was 35 - 36 mpg, then once on the fairly flat road to M6 it recovered to 39.5 mpg. Surprised it's not more but you definitely notice the difference on hillyterrain.
