Today's mpg was a rather disappointing 52.2. That is since I started the daily commute, taking my wife the 3.6 miles to and from her work and also with the lower road temperatures and increased amount of wet days.
My last 10 Fuelly top ups had averaged 60.2 but now it is down to 59.7. It will only go lower as the winter progresses.

I still think that's good for these short trips. Far in excess of anything I've got.

My 2007 1.2 Cool does a bit different depending on city only or 50%highways/50%city.

Only city I get as bad as 37mpg (6,3l/100km) with trips of 45m of medium to heavy traffic. Sometimes small low traffic trips of 15m (cold engine most of the time).
If I mix I get 42,7mpg (5,5l/100km) or better. Highway done between 62mph and 80mph (100km/h and 130km/h).

I usually have the air con on at least sometimes (to demist screen) but if too cold or hot, it will be on all the time.

All readings from the car's dash.

Rather surprised to find that my actually mpg this tankful was better than the "Fibometer" said. "Fibometer" reckoned 58.1 mpg, so I thought I probably managed about 53 - 54, but it actually calculated out at 59.7. I checked my figures out a couple of times in case I had made a mistake with the odometer reading, but no, it was the correct figures.

Slight differences in the fuel level when you stopped filling?

Only just discovered that the Jazz has a fuel-consumption doodad.  :-[
I thought the twiddly bit in the gauge cluster was just for adjusting the instrument lights.
Ironically enough, the one thing I immediately noticed about the Jazz was that it didn't seem to have a trip-meter... which is, apparently, also accessed via the same control.

Anyway, based on the 785 miles my Jazz had done since the last time anybody reset the trip-meter, it was showing 52.2 MPG.

Having reset the trip-meter, I wondered what sort of MPG figures I'd get, given that most of my driving is in towns, on twisty B-roads and even the A-roads around here are rather hilly.

I was quite chuffed to find that I was getting around 45 MPG, even while driving locally.
Been commuting around 30 miles this week (60 mile round-trip) and fuel-consumption quickly regained 52 MPG, despite the fact I've been going up and down through the gears on B-roads and working the engine to overtake lorries and climb hills.

Very impressed.

Good figures. Be aware that the "Fibometer" as we refer to it is a bit optimistic. I find mine about 4% high but if your's is the same that is still 50 mpg.

I live in The Netherlands and drive a 2005 1.2 Cool. First of all, I drive relatively like a grandpa. For me driving is something I enjoy and most of the time is relaxes me (when the road isn't gridlocked and filled with agressive morons).

The highest I ever got was in the heat of summer: 63,6 mpg. Now, while it's getting colder, I'm getting about 50,8 mpg.

Good figures. Pretty well mimics mine, as does your driving style.

Wait you mean there are some roads without agressive morons? Where? :)

For now my best on the jazz indicator is 4.5 L/100 km. 4.7 or 4.8 if its crowded with cars. Tried to do better but so far never went down that number.

I make 4.5 l/100km = 63 mpg. I've been averaging about 44 mpg 6.4 l/100km recently. Is the 1.2 so much better than the 1.4?

Or is it? What do you think?

Perhaps it depends on where you drive. The 1.2 does not have an excess of power, so maybe a lot of highway miles where the car has to work hard may not be the most efficient?

I get excellent mpg on highway miles with my 1.2 DSi. My best for highway driving is 69.9 mpg for a 234-mile trip.

When you blokes us the term MPG is that using US gallons or the so called Imperial gallons?
There's quite a difference and that would explain how dumbfounded I have been with the figures that get mentioned on this thread, seeing I have been assuming they are US gallons, well not me but Google...
