Ordered a Clubman Cooper D :-)

Hey! Moving from a GP to a Clubman D (economy & space) and just placed my order this morning. Rough spec is:

Chilli Red
Black roof & mirrors
Vision Pack
Chilli Pack
Media Pack

And a couple of other odds and ends too. Looking forward to a realistic 60 MPG and 20 per year tax! Does anyone have any links to the 2011 MY Clubman D manual, and the sat nav manual with Connected?

Thanks in advance, and hi again!

Hi Spacer,

Nice 1 m8, i changed from a s1 cooper to a dooper clubby and love it.
20 road tax and av 62mpg make a big difference to the wallet at the of the month plus the extra space is handy.

Enjoy!

Nice choice, I have the clubby diesel and love it, just buy some good cleaning products as it does get dirty quick, I followed the rally around wales last week and my car looked like one of the competition cars so a good coat of wax and regular washes is a must...

Hi there

60mpg might be a touch on the rather optimistic side I'm afraid... My Clubman D has done 15,000 miles and manages 46-49mpg and I drive like a saint(!) combination of start/stop activated town traffic (60%) & motorway driving averaging 75mph (40%), with tyre pressure checked every fortnight, and 17" wheels.

So if you do achieve better fuel consumption, you must tell us your secret!

I had thought the new engined Clubman D's were now road tax exempt as the CO2 level came in under 100g/km...?

Enjoy the Clubbie D though, its definitely the best car I've ever had -from design to performance I can't fault it.

At the end of Jan I'm swapping my much loved Hot Choc Clubbie D for a Countryman D & hope it behaves as well as the Clubman

Fabster.... is yours a BMW engined D? I'd heard that they did slightly better consumption than the older engine, but I suppose every driver is different! And the CO2 emissions are 103 g/km, so just over the free mark (but its free for the first year!). And its at the dealer. I was in today to sign some paperwork, and I'm hoping to pick it up tomorrow (but if not, then Tue). Fingers crossed, but looking forward to it.

I've been driving the PSA diesel engined Clubman for 2 and 1/2 years. Fuel consumption is (lifetime) 4.8L/100km or about 49 litres per gallon. Car uses more fuel after I change to winter tires and use the heater to some extent, but generally stays between 48-50 mpg. That's the best I've been able to get out of it. I drive 85% highway @110-130km/hr. I don't notice any variation with fuel type.

I belong to a Mini club, and from what I've heard the BMW engines get worse fuel efficiency than the old PSA engines.

Ok, managed to pick it up this afternoon. Much respect to Stratstone Hull (especially Steve and Tony). Here we are:

Nice one Spacer, hope you're finding plenty of excuses to drive your new Clubman D!

Give it a while for the engine to loosen up and you'll be the right side of 50mpg average in no time.

We were well under 50 mpg on the first tankful even driving gently while running in, but are comfortably averaging in the mid 50's now that we're well over 2000 miles in our new Clubman D, and it will probably continue to climb a bit more as we reach 20-30,000 miles if our previous new diesel was typical.

If you can resist, just set the cruise control on 50 mph while on the a-roads, forget about trying to overtake the trucks, and you'll be amazed at how economical your Clubman D is. 60mpg+ will be no problem on a run, even with a relatively tight new engine.

Thanks. Yep, I was getting about 50mpg on the two journeys we did last night. Still much better than the GP it replaces! And we're looking forward to a couple of big drives at Xmas to get it a decent run.

Appreciate this thread is a little old ...

Firstly, car looks good Happy driving in it.

With MPG, I can't comment directly as my Clubman Diesel has the PSA engine with 39,000miles on it but unless I'm accelerating hard everywhere I'll get 56-59 on normal use ( minimum 44 miles per day doing two 11 miles eachway school runs ) on flowing 'B' & 'A' roads.

If I take to the motorway to see inlaws / outlaws and keep it under 70mph then I normally get 62-65mpg on a 75 miles eachway trip.

The best I've had is 72mpg on a trip to Le Touquet in northern France however that was keeping it under 60mph (very boring) as I had plenty of time on my hands that day.

My best advice to you is forward observation to keep it smooth with no harsh acceleration or braking, use the gear selection indicator on the dash and above all don't get all hung-up about MPG ... it will improve with time.

Finally, unlike another poster on here I find that swapping to winters actually helps mpg but that might be as I go from 205/40/17 OEM Continental Runflats to 175/65/15 Dunlop Wintersports Non-Runflats so the tyre footprint is considerably smaller (and the ride quality is considerably better).
