Hi, I've done just over 7,500 miles since new and currently averaging 59.4 mpg - I'd say I drive conservatively most of the time with the odd foot to the floor.

I drive around 40 miles a day mostly single and dual carriageway roads.

Not too bad considering I was getting around 36 mpg in my Clio 182

Nick.

There's a long way to go to get to 74.3mpg :0(
Could improve, its still tight, needs to get over 5000 to get an accurate indication of how it will be in the future.

Anyone know what a D Auto returns? Waiting for delivery. As long as it beats a 2.5litre X-Trail (21.3mpg) i'll be winning.

Just 500 miles on the clock and I'm getting c. 49 mpg (British miles, British gallons :-) )

My wife has driven it mostly so far; 5 days a week to work and back, 30 miles or so each day. Country A roads, plenty of gear changes, slow traffic and roundabouts. Air con on all the time, occasional heated seats and screens, stop / start always 'off' and little regard for driving in a 'fuel saving' way.

I think that's pretty good for a new engine. Filled it today and the range readout was 447 miles. Was lucky to see 325 in our 2010 Cooper petrol hatch. Very happy man.

Tried a Dooper S demo a couple of weeks ago and managed 60+ (just, and I was trying) - so as, previously discussed here, nothing like the old PSA engine but still reasonably OK. I find my wife drives with a heavy foot too so I can usually do better and still have fun. If I go for the Dooper S then I've resigned myself to at least 10mpg less but will have gained 30-odd BHP in the process.

The first 2,000 miles in my SD Roadster have produced 47.2mpg (real - measured at the pump), which isn't great. Partly that's down to cruising at too high a speed on motorways but another big culprit is twisty country lanes and that luscious motor - even a diesel can't compensate for using monster torque to leap out of corners and then braking hard for the next corner. On one 20 mile cross-country run off main roads, I got the trip computer to record 28mpg - but I was having a lot of fun! The best I've seen is on gentle suburban/rural roads where trip averages of 60mpg are just, only just, possible.

Remap?

Anyone thought of having a remap done to improve the mpg?
It costs about 270 pounds and gives you an extra 40bhp and an extra 6mpg also,might be worth looking into.
Anybody had one? What results did you get?

I bought a Cooper D back in July 2012, I do mostly motorway driving to London and back, avoiding rush hour traffic, managed to average 51 mpg over the past 7 months.

The best I could ever do was 62 mpg, once, while driving late at night and trying very hard to be as efficient as humanly possible, shifting gears as the car asked me to and taking it real easy with that pedal under my right foot. It was not fun.

The hell with mpgs, you live only once. Just enjoy driving your car, safely of course.

I have the same question as you JONNYBLADE?

Who's doing it please? and can it be reset by us before taking the car to be serviced by a Mini dealer?

Are changing when it tells you - that should get you a better mpg as a start.

3,500 miles now; fuel consumption unchanged at 49 / 50 mpg. Air con on all the time, heated seats used often. Still a great drive :-)

An update from me,

Sept 2009 Cooper D owned since July 2012 last year.

Driven around 12k miles since then (bought on 39k, now around 51k)

Now averaged 55.69 UK MPG on those miles.

Problems since I've had the car,
- Boot leak where seal was changed under warranty
- Very small bubbles in both rear quarter paint - both resprayed under warranty
- Rear bushes replaced under warranty from knocking suspension
- occasional not starting again after engine stop start has stopped.
- occasional hesitation around 1500rpm, not sure what that is
- just noticed lots of soot around turbo and on underside of bonnett (seen others with this problem)

It shall be going in again soon to hope fix the last 3 items on that list. Other than that its been a great little car.

Considering I went from an R53 JCW with around 25mpg... My running costs on fuel really were surprising

I shall update more on the MPG after more coverage, but still around 55mpg. That's actual, measured at the pumps and always inputted into iPhone app (Road Trip) and that calculates all my running costs. Highly recommended.

Cheers
Stu
