Me too, close enough that i don't need to check it anymore. But I continue to record the actual mileage on my app.

Disaster - just returned from a 200 mile round trip this weekend and the dash is showing 44.9mpg. Maybe the driver needs to improve their driving technique?

yeah I was wondering that myself. My wife uses it as a daily driver for work and we're getting 31.9 mpg.

I stuck a load of gear in the back along with a roof tent up top and blasted up to Kielder. At the end of that trip was getting 39.1 mpg. All the hilly country roads meant I was revving it way more than our usual 'driving miss daisy' driving styles.

I'm new to all things Jimny and 4wd cars (zero car knowledge to be truthful) so I have no idea if that's good or not.

Two refills done with my new one, first showing 4 MPG mainly on 40-60 mph including some test crawling and city/traffic driving. Second was pretty good, pure 40-60mph on the road totaling almost 4,5mpg. Measured by same refill state, computer is showing around 4mpg (haven’t resetted it).

My usual drive to work consists of 1/3 city roads(stop start traffic lights) and 2/3 country roads and I've managed to just click mine up to 45mpg yesterday clicking down to 44.9mpg this morning. That's after a full tank of super unleaded and a trip reset as I was curious myself.

So only having had the Grello three weeks and covering 240 miles.... I am only getting 35.8 mpg.... 5 speed manual. I have done mainly local runs and my average speed shows as about 21 mph. I am hoping as the engine frees up and I start to use a few more revs.... not been over 4000 yet... it will start to return more mpg. Is this something others have found or is it just me??

My mpg did improve with some miles on the clock, give it 1000 miles then compare.

It seems that there is a lot of variation between our new cars.

Pre- 500 miles and pre the toyo 215 tyres and no kit in the back, i was getting 39 ish MPG.

That was super babying tho, never went above 3000 rmp.

I found the engine was very tight on delivery and fuel consumption improved significantly after a couple of thousand miles.

I doubt you actually have much variation between standard vehicles, modern manufacturing tolerances and closed loop fuel injection have made this a thing of the past. What we have at play is variations in use, the roads, the surface, fuel, driving styles, weather, this list is long.
Recently I went to an electric ebike for my daily commute. One thing that electric transport shows really well is the drain these variations have on range, or in the Jimny world mpg. Riding locally on different routes and speeds gives me a range of 20 to 40 miles. Currently I get 20 miles out of a charge and travel 2.5 miles each way to work. In my last job I got 30 miles per charge but traveled 8 miles each way to work.
The interesting fact here is that I use the same 2.5 mile route at the start of the 8 mile journey, so the majority of the drain occurs during the short 2.5 mile section. Why this section ?
To me it looks no different to the rest of the Journey, but some difference is consuming more energy.
Slightly more hills than I give it credit for, different tarmac, I ride the section harder?
I don't know, but it does show that any slight variations in use will impact your mpg figure.

The futures slow with limited range, enjoy it while you can and stop worrying about mpg :laugh:
