Re: Re:


giving me an average milage of 9.3 l/100k or 30mpg old school.

You have done exceptionally well as a neophyte to the CVT gearbox & Drive By Wire accelerator !

Your mileage is better than average.

Perhaps you are 'sympatico' with the machinery.

It took me a while to figure out how to get the best from the CVT, DBW [sign in to see URL] combination.

It is supposed to be a self-learning system & seems designed to like a light touch on the accelerator.

It should only get better for you.

Re:


My last three cars have returned some pretty impressive milage.
I drive like an old man (because I are)
I do mostly highway driving (about 60-70%)
and Im a cheapskate,(dont like wasting money on petrol)

The best was my Honda Civic 1.6 manual - 47MPG, (average 42MPG) not sure what that is in l/100k
Next was my old VT Commodore auto - 36MPG, (Average 31MPG)
Then the wifes Epica 6 cylinder 2.5 auto - 40MPG (Average 32MPG)
The fords best has so far been 34MPG (average 30MPG)

I have only filled the tank once on the X Trail and I didnt fill it, so Im not sure if it was actually full to start with.
Over the next few fills Ill get a better idea what it can do, but Ill be towing my boat so economy runs will have to wait.
Once I hand back the company ford, Ill be using my X Trail daily and then Ill get a much better idea of what sort of milage I can get.
Ill keep you all informed.

Re: Fuel consumption when towing


Hi, just finished a months holiday towing a van. With sight seeing - no van attached.
My vehicle - Nissan X-Trail 2011 / 2.5 lt / CVT ST-L / Auto
When towing, used "auto" selection. When not towing used 2 wd selection
Average Liters/100km = [sign in to see URL]
Highest " = 18.5
lowest " = 10.5
Traveled 2012 km with van attached.
     " approx 300 km with van un-attached. As the lowest figure shows - traveled 110 km towing and just over 200 km not towing
Unladen weight of van = 1220 kg
Guessing 200 kg extra for goods put on board car and van combined. Had no water in on board van water tank.
Highest consumption was when I was traveling @ 90kph from Adelaide to Port Augusta, which is slightly uphill most of the way (304 km).
Due to this.
Kept speed down to average of 80 kph with 75 being lowest and 85 kph the highest, depending on conditions (up or down hill). I suppose my average revs were around 2250.

Re: Fuel consumption (T30 & T31 2.5LT Petrol Versions)


According to my on screen display I am getting [sign in to see URL], the car is a 2103 [sign in to see URL] Petrol Auto 4x4, it is always in 4x4 mode but not locked so not sure how that equates (I think its 90% front 10% back with variance if req)

Its driven 28,000 in 1 year and 5 months, I drive around 80km per day for work and around 200km 3 times a week for personal

roads have been around 60% highway, 35% suburb, 5% off-track

Pretty happy with it, I run 98 octane in her since new, still on stock tires with lots of tread left

Re: Fuel consumption (T30 & T31 2.5LT Petrol Versions)


Posted by nonredneck - Copied from another thread

Re: T31-L 6 spd manual (petrol) fuel meter ECONOMY TEST

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just wanted to share my fuel consumption test. I tried for ABSOLUTE BEST ECONOMY. Would like to hear any comments from owners of similar Exy's who have metered their lowest and average fuel figures.

RELEVANT DATA
No modifications to engine whatsoever, Odometer 43,000 klms. Immaculate service history (Nissan dealer). Tested with 95RON / Castrol GTX 5w professional. Stock 17" on-road tyres, towbar, no bull bar. Cargo Load: driver 90kilos, fuel tank 50%, no passengers, gear approx 12 kilos.

MINIMUM FUEL CONSUMPTION - HWAY
I havent done my best at verifying the consumption meter but I've been getting good displays down to [sign in to see URL] on HWAY trips with an average [sign in to see URL]

TEST ROUTE
My test route is Nowra to Wollongong NSW via Princes Hwy including moderate hills, windy sections, 60kmh roadworks, no traffic, Ave speed limit is 90kmh (changes thru 90, 60, 80, 100).

DRIVING STYLE
I'm averaging 2000 - 2300 revs across all gears. To keep within this rev range means taking moderate hills in either 6th gear at 85-90 kmh or dropping down to 5th and 4th at much lower speeds ....and very moderate acceleration throughout the whole trip. On this test trip I cruised at an average 90kmh in mostly 6th gear continous hway, no traffic, no start/stops. The engine was never allowed to labour - revs were adequate and the engine seemed to have more torque down low than her specs suggest.

FUEL METER DISPLAY
I achieved 8.1 only very rarely and briefly on this trip and this requires a lot of concentration in a manual. (can not hear the revs with music on or windows down). I managed 8.4 more easily - but still required some concentration. I achieved an average between 8.1 and 8.4 over the whole trip. Keep in mind these figures are per the DISPLAY only.

ACTUAL CONSUMPTION
This was tested for 697 kilomtres of 40% urban / 60% Hway driving with cold starts over 5 days, consuming approx 55-60 litres of 95RON. I filled up with exactly 55L and reset the trip meter. I've allowed for a margin of error (5 litres) because the starting fuel level was not exactly known, there were a few litres already in there. After 697 klms I was much lower in the tank - close to empty.

So I calculate 697 klms over 55-60 litres, or between [sign in to see URL] to [sign in to see URL] klms per Litre. This equates to between 7.9 and [sign in to see URL] L per 100K. I think it is probably around [sign in to see URL] since the fuel tank capacity is 60L

This seems too low for noncontinuous urban/hwy driving incl cold starts. So i don't believe it. There's something I have overlooked.

But I defintely think this Bowser test has proven the accuracy of the fuel usage display on my highway trip.

I'm about to add a 20kg nudge bar and semi off-road tyres - so my Hway economy is going to suffer. Still, what makes the ave [sign in to see URL] look so good is that these heavy cars can CHEW fuel - I can burn 12L/100k or more if i'm not driving for economy - especially up hills.

Hope I haven't bored you all to death.

Re:


OK
I have had the exy for 5 months now and filled it several times.
I own a 2010 series 3 T31 it now has 101000k on the clock.
No mods other than a nudge bar and narva lights and genuine roof racks.
(please note, I have noticed in a previous car that roof racks do increase the coefficient of drag somewhat and that I could achieve 2-3 mpg better without them)

I drive 60-70 % highway 86klm to and from work each day
10k to the freeway on varing speed local roads
60k on the freeway at freeway speeds (110-120)
16k to the factory in mild traffic after leaving the freeway.
On a fortnightly basis I tow a 1200kg boat about 25klm to and from the boat ramp.

I have filled the exy 12 times from the same pump carefully monitoring the placement.

Best milage achieved so far ([sign in to see URL]) (about 32mpg)
Worst milage achieved so far ([sign in to see URL]) (about 27mpg)
This is for a full tank taking into account all driving done on that tank. (average fill 51 litres for an average 540klm)

In comparison under the exact same conditions and driving manner.
Ford XT falcon Best (8l/100k or 35mpg) Worst ([sign in to see URL] or 24mpg)
Aurion Best ([sign in to see URL] or 36 mpg) Worst ([sign in to see URL] or 23mpg)
Holden Epica Best ([sign in to see URL] or 40mpg) Worst ([sign in to see URL] or [sign in to see URL])

Max towing capacity
X trail 2000kg
Ford 1600kg
Aurion 1600kg
Epica 900kg

Getting a boat off a wet boat ramp
X trail - Brilliant, slight slippage but felt safe
Ford - Holy S#*t Im going to sink the car.
Aurion - front wheel drive slippage, smoke and weaving all over the shop, scary.
Epica - yeah right, aint gonna happen.

Re:


Thanks for your update Valkie. I've just purchased the exact same car and will be interested to see how I go.
I'll be doing mainly short trips 10km to work and back, weekly 40km round trip to kids swimming with half of that on the freeway at 100km/hr and other general driving.
Expecting a slight increase in costs from the BA Falcon on LPG, but so worth having 4x4 option again, especially at the boat ramp.
Cheers.

Re: Fuel consumption (T30 & T31 2.5LT Petrol Versions)


Hi guys,
My X-trail (2011 auto T31 64kms) bougth recently shows average consumption down to 8.4 l/100 km in the freeway and 14 l/100 km in urban driving. This is happening within less than 50 km of mixed driving which makes me suspecting the trip computer readings and sensors feeding it. I Will start recording fuel tank/kms as soon as finished with this one done by the previous owner. The things I'll consider to do (anyway) will be cleaning MAF sensor and replacing oxygen sensor. I was told by the mechanic throttle body needs a clean too.
Is this big change in average fuel consumption been seen by anyone before?
Thank you
