As a new NoteownerI have just come back from holiday after completing over 400 miles. I haveregistered33mpg andwaswondering if this is about right.My Noteisa 2008 1.6 Acenta auto and I did a lot ofmotorwaydriving at asteady60mph. Thanks Sherry.
I know it's not like for like, but 1.4 manual is returning 42.37mpg (approx)with 50/50 dual carrigeway and urban driving. I normally keep to about 60mph on the dual stretch as it's only a few mile anyway and it really gets you know where quicker doing 70mph.
It'll be interesting to see if it changes with my new tyres going on.
At motorway speeds, there shouldn't be much, if any, difference for an autobox vs. manual.
We just did 850 miles out to Cherbourg and back (via the tunnel) and managed 43mpg with the car fully loaded and the AC on half the time. The 80 mph limits on French autoroutes kills it a bit. The fuel economy drops very quickly past 65 or so, as I've had 49 mpg on A-road driving. 2011 16 manual.
!.4 N-tec+ ,Just completed an 1150 Mile round trip from Yorkshire to Plymouth to take in 12 National Trust Houses.Average speed 45 mph andoverallconsumption of 53.5 mpg. Motorway average speed according to me was 65mph - a lot of the trip was on country roads involving much gear changing to keep car moving.
With 4 suitcases, 25 litre coolbox and the wife'sequivalentof the kitchen sink, theweightdefinitely showed.
Brimming and resetting trip meter A every fill-up. Total mileage derived from trip meter B.I have to say I prefer my Picasso over the Note, mainly due to the 1.6 petrol motor, greater load capacity and overall comfort on long drives. I find the Note seat gives me a pain in the lower thighs on a long run so having Cruise Control came in useful. That's not to say I dislike the Note, the run we've just done was without fuss and the wife ( whose car it is ) enjoyed the luxury of having nothing to do except enjoy the scenery )
The Picasso is the vehicle of choice for our forthcoming drive out to Crete.
If I keep the Pic below 75mph, then I can get around 45 to the gallon ( caveat - needs Shell to achieve this figure - knock it down to around 40 mpg on any other fuel. )
The Picasso has just come up to 50,000 miles and on its major service this morning I've had the first big bill - New front discs and pads and both rear brakecylindersreplaced ( one leaking and the t'other replaced on an advisory from Citroen )
I thought I'd maybe need the Timing chain replaced, but that's not done until 100,000 miles or ten years! In the 6 years I've had it, all I've had to replace is 1 set of tyres and 2 headlamp bulbs - Not bad for a 6 year old motor compared to others I've had.
I have a Nissan Note 2007 Tenka 1.6 Auto the same engine as yours.
If it is only returning 33 mpg on a 400 mile run it should return more.
Mine does approx 28 mpg around town and approx 46 mpg mainly on the motorway doing at least 70 mph.
The first thing you can do is check the air filter as it is a 2 minute job.If it is dirty change it because on ebay the standard air filter is well under a £10.00 and after all it won't harm the engine.
