Fuel consumption

Post by szaBIKA » Thu Feb 21, 2019 7:13 pm

Hey all Cactus owner. I bought a Cactus Flair, 110HP, petrol. 2016 model. Using 95% city, mostly short trips. My MPG came down to 43-44 is that ok? I am not a sportive driver, so wondering if all you have about the same? Or the car need some checking? Thanks for all your help ;)

Flair 110 1.2 petrol

Ratio approx 80:20 urban/motorway and I am getting 38-40. Very disappointing considering I am careful.

1.2 RIP CURL. 8000 MILES Varied open road motoring, brisk driving, 50.1 mpg from new.
All weather (wider) tyres so this is acceptable.

The petrol engined version in the Cactus will be poor. The 1.2 engine lacks power and doesn’t have a linear power curve unlike the diesel where I am achieving 68 round town with the stop/start activated and 70+ on the open roads.

Cold weather pulls down the mpg where I have found temperatures of 6C it achieves 56-64mpg, and temperatures of 16c upwards achieve minimum 70mpg and up to 96mpg on a motorway (60-70mph). Tyre pressures are important making sure they are all correct at manufacturers recommendations.

OP has a 1.2 turbo so this doesn’t apply.

Ok thanks for all your answers. Just went for long trip to Wales, MPG start to go higher. 2nd tripmeter reseted before journey, came 54MPG after 150 miles. So was just asking if all others have the same about. Overall the car working nicely, bought a month ago :)

So is 38-40 acceptable for new model, 2018, flair 1.2 petrol or should I get it checked out?

Careful driving, as I said 80/20 urban/motorway split, tyres correct, no weight in car, just me.
