The generally accepted standard has risen from a consumption of around 8.1 to 7.1 litres per 100km (35-40mpg) in the past to more like 5.6 to 5.1 litres (50-55mpg). As a rule of thumb, vehicles listed at less than 6.0 litres/100km are considered to have 'good' MPG.

No matter what kind of car. It can be a Honda Fit all the way to a Ford F-250. Try to answer these questions as well:

How longs your commute?

Whats the geography in your area? (hills, urban, highway, snow, etc.)

How much is gas in your area/what type of gas do you  use?

How much does the EPA say is the MPG?

Also, if your car isn't in your flair, tell us what you drive.

I'd estimate around 38mpg based on what Betty did with her 1060 engine.

It's worth remembering that the final drive ratio has a LOT to do with MPG, not just the engine size...

 

And an awful lot to do with engine efficiency ..ie cylinder head and general state of tune etc etc.

Check out the story of David Vizard's 50/50 Mini...

3.2 was what Betty had, I've subsequently dropped to a 3.44 to go with the ATB and even more power.

I have parts to build pre A+ rod change with close ratio gear set. Thinking about using my last 3.2 CWP.
And see how that works out. I have buckets of 3.44 sets which is becoming the new 4.10. Steve (CTR)

Doug (as usual) is wise.  That said, I get about 40MPG (imperial) if I keep my foot out of it. (it's pretty hard to do, LOL!)

In Canada, forever, we used the Imperial Gallons like the UK, but I still can't seem to get used to "Liters/100km" (what does that even mean?)
.  I am not as old as dirt, but probably smell almost as bad.
I think in "feet/inches" like most of you, weigh things in pounds, when I am cold outside or warm inside, everything is Celsius and when I fill up my MINI (or Mini) it's 'how many liters",Speed here is by km/h, but when I talk fuel consumption it's "miles per gallon" (Imperial)

Talk about a mixed up country !

Mike

p.s.-most , but not all, tape measures here have cm on one edge and feet/inches on the other edge...oh, we buy milk in 1 liter bags, but when we bring it home and cook/bake with it, we add "cups" of milk to our recipes.

The numbers offered by members from the U.K. may reflect MPG in Imperial gallons which are close to 20% larger than a U.S. gallon (1 Imperial gallon = 1.2 US gallon).  To convert Imperial MPG to US MPG multiply by 0.83

My standard '73 998, driven on mostly county roads with 55 mph limits, over a number of years averaged 43 mpg. On one trip with a good tail wind, I got 48!

depends on the driving. I can say mid to upper 30's on a relatively stock car driven at 55mph and below. As soon as i started doing the same freeway speeds as everyone else, added wider tires and a performance cam, it dropped to the mid 20's to very low 30s on rare occasions.

Betty would do 50-odd mpg before I improved her down to 25...

I was curious as to what people are getting MPG wise on their stock 998cc engines?
