It's a matter of how standard the car is and how it's driven as well as the age of the car and how well it's maintenance is kept up. Most I have managed is 360 miles on a motorway run with a standard transmission. Others get as low as a hundred miles but have huge tyres and spend most of their time in low range. It's that variable.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

Now with the 215-75’s I have to fill her up at 200 miles quite exactly. This is short driving every day, 10 minutes to work and 10 minutes home. The most miles I had on standard Jimny is 275 miles.

Will be nice to see what difference the G16B will make, if any

Standard vehicle and tyres with M13A VVT urban travel I get 34.6 MPG. (Bit sad as I record miles/fuel used)...
Have yet to see what I get on a long run.

My normal commute (b-road and town) is 33-35mpg. I have gotten a hair under 40 out of it on a good run though.

56 plate VVT on 113k, getting manufacturers economy isn't half bad, I don't hang about either.

With Yokohama Geolandars and no other mods I can get 34:mpg with a light foot.
I use a Scangauge and it says mpg varies from 2.5 to about 60.

Last Wednesday I picked my M13A VVT Convertible up from Barnstaple where I filled it to the brim with fuel, zeroed the odometer, and drove via Minehead and Tewkesbury to Stow-On-The-Wold where I filled it up to the brim again, and got just over 20.67 litres in (4.54 UK gallons).

Most of the journey from Minhead to Gloucestershire was up the M5 at around 65 - 70mph, and the journey between Barnstaple and Minehead was mostly twisty and undulating narrow lanes.
According to the odometer the journey was a total of 162 miles which almost exactly matches what I get on Google Maps of 163 miles.
My calculations suggest that I averaged between 35.6 and 35,9 mpg (depending on which mileage you choose)

I'm running road tyres 205/70/15 and the car is in need of a service


IF IT AINT BROKE, KEEP FIXING IT UNTIL IT IS
