We derive CO2 and fuel consumption figures in laboratory tests according to Regulation (EC) 715/2007 or CR (EC) 692/2008 and subsequent amendments.
They are intended as a comparison between makes and models of vehicles.They are not intended to represent the real world fuel consumption you may get from your vehicle.
Real world fuel consumption is governed by many factors, for example driving style, high speed driving, stop-start driving, air conditioning usage, add-on accessories, payload and towing.
The advertised capacity is the maximum amount of fuel that you can add to the fuel tank when the fuel gauge indicates empty.
In addition, the fuel tank contains an empty reserve.The empty reserve is an unspecified amount of fuel that remains in the fuel tank when the fuel gauge indicates empty.
The amount of fuel in the empty reserve varies and should not be relied upon to increase driving range.
Your vehicle calculates fuel economy figures through the trip computer average fuel function. See
1000 mi (1,500 km) of driving is the break-in period of the engine. A more accurate measurement is obtained after
2000 mi (3,000 km).
Impacting Fuel Economy
- Incorrect tire inflation pressures. See
- Fully loading your vehicle.
- Carrying unnecessary weight.
- Adding certain accessories to your vehicle such as bug deflectors, rollbars or light bars, running boards and ski racks.
- Using fuel blended with alcohol. See
Fuel Quality - Diesel.
- Fuel economy may decrease with lower temperatures.
- Fuel economy may decrease when driving short distances.
- You may get better fuel economy when driving on flat terrain than when driving on hilly terrain.
