Hi,I have the same problem, my Discovery Sport HSE LUX have 450 miles and I filled up 3 times. The 3rd time I have half tank left now. Something is not right. Doesn't feel like a V4, more like a V8 hemi like my old 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit V8
I'm a big fan of the Fuelly app. Anytime I fill up, just enter the Odometer reading, how many gallons, and price I paid. Gives you all the info you want from there.It's also worth putting the old calculator to it as well.
I'll have to do that next time I fill up to check the accuracy of the computer.
I feel the auto stop feature is the biggest contributor to our better than advertised fuel economy. I was never sold on auto stop, Im a believer now for sure. I have a feeling that if we disabled it most of the time our MPGs would drop drastically.I feel this discovery is like the Jeep in terms of Fuel Consumption. The Eco is on, when I drive, but I disable the auto/stop because it hot in NY now and when I come to a complete stop on a red hot the AC turns off. Any other suggestions or I have a to break in the car before I notice improvement in term of fuel consumption.
That doesn't sound that great to me. 300 miles divided by 18 gallons (tank is advertised as 18.5 US gallons) equals only 16.6mpg.I just did a road trip from nyc to hershey park roughly 180 miles 1 way and found I get about 300 miles on a full tank gas, is that good?
No thats actually terrible....IF youve used the whole tank of gas (18 gallons). Youd just have to fill it up then divide the numbers of gallons you just put in by the miles on the tank of gas. So if youre just gettiing low and you still have around 3 gallons left and then fill up with only 15 gallons...well thats a little better at 20mpg. But thats the only way to get an accurate mpg reading. BTW, even 20 mpg for a road trip would be pretty bad.I just did a road trip from nyc to hershey park roughly 180 miles 1 way and found I get about 300 miles on a full tank gas, is that good?
The specification say it's got 18.5 gallon capacity. So you had a little over 4 gallons left in your tank. And the miles to empty feature is probably reading conservatively.Disco can hold 18gallons? When I was empty and car said 40miles to empty, I filled it up, it was only 14gallon.
It's my understanding that the gas gauge in the DS does not work properly. There may be a software fix for it (although I haven't confirmed it with mine yet, or gotten the fix). The DS seems to hold 4 gallons in reserve rather than the "usual" 1 gallon or so. I've seen references on other sites that there is a software fix for this. If I ever get it done, I'll let people know on this forum.Disco can hold 18gallons? When I was empty and car said 40miles to empty, I filled it up, it was only 14gallon.
Update: currently the average MPG is 20 ~ 21. It has improved but not close to the advertised 22 mix driving. The running-in/break-in period is almost over, I am sure the MPG is going to drop once I start driving "normally".Our DS is still in its "running-in" period, so the driving style is still very "gentle". We have been driving on both city/highway, with ECO mode and Intelligent Stop/Start on. So far the best we got is 18.9 mpg. Not so good.
We use Costco premium gas. I wonder if using more expensive name-brand premium gas would make a difference.
