Default Freelander mpg


I know this is a bit like asking how long is a piece of string but:

What kind of mpg could I expect (ball park figure is fine) for a Freelander
diesel or the 1.8 petrol version ?

I have a Volvo T5 2.3 Turbo estate at the moment and am looking to switch to
a freelander as I have always wanted one, but the fuel consumption on any
new vehicle I get must be better than the 22mpg I currently get from the T5.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

Lofty

Don't know about the 1.8 petrol or 2.0Di but over the last 3 years I've
averaged 33mpg on a 2001 Td4 auto, slightly above quoted figure. Td4 manual
is supposed to do 37mpg.

HTH,

Either should do better than 22 mpg, although the petrol won't beat it
by much. The V6 (which you haven't mentioned) won't beat it at all.

TD4: low to mid 30s.
1.8: mid to high 20s.
V6: low 20s.

Thanks, thats very helpful.

I didn't mention the V6 as I had kind of dismissed that on the basis it
would be thirsty.

Thanks, its good to get feedback from people with experience. Quoted figures
are always a bit wide of the mark, and its the real world which counts.

I will take a closer look at the diesel version I think.

I've just bought a freelander myself and seem to get about 25 mpg. This is
lower than i'd expected and so I've looked into an LPG conversion.
This runs at about 1800quid but will save about 600 annually doing 10000
miles. As I intend keeping the vehicle for a number of years it will give me
a good saving.

If you are interested type " LPG conversion " into google for more info
