RangeRover Consumption in Real Life

I intend to buy a Range Rover 4.0/4.6 around '97-'99. I understand that
this cars are "amaizing" on gas, thirsty. I know that official should
take arround 16mpg (~15%) on hwy and 12-13mpg (~18-19.6%) in city.

Can you tell me about your experiences?

THANK YOU!

RR 4.6 1997

Overall (~12 mile commute plus long journeys, no "city" driving) - 16.4
Worst (Weekend event including a lot of idling and lots of off-road) - 12.2
Best (A-road cruising with CC set to 60, M-way cruise at 70) - 20.3

Based on UK gallons, BTW.

These figures over 22K miles.

Absolutly amazing my 93RR vogue SE 3.9 returns 23mpg relentlessly, never
go into towns if I can possibly avoid it though, and on long motorway
cruise runs has returned over 30mpg.

Wish I got that sort of figure from my (now sold) 3.9 Disco. Best I
ever got was 18mpg (UK) taking it really easy on a long motorway trip.
Usual mileage was more like 11-15mpg!

I'd like to know what you've done to your engine, I don't even get 30mpg
out of my diesel P38!

Matt.

I never got near that with my 3.9 - my figures were very similar to the
P38's. Perhaps the environment pixies have come in the night and replaced
the oily bits with something from a Prius?

Unless it's a manual - were there any?

I've come to the reluctant conclusion that some people have a lighter right
boot than I.

I can only just get 30mpg from my MkIII................

.............Diesel.

An average of nearly 27 with a light foot.


In approximately the same conditions my MkI V8 used to average about 18,
dropping to 15 on occasions. MkI diesel VM2.4 averaged 26 with dips to 24.

Re: RangeRover Consumption in Real Life

MKIII

Average 17-18mpg
Motorway - 25mpg
Mixed driving all day - 20mpg

Can get it as low as *cough* 7....but that's usually corrected after
levelling out!

Suspect for that consumption it would need amputated at the knee!

The figure of 20.3 cruising was with the cruise control set to 69.5mph.
Boots had nothing to do with it!

I still suspect magic.
