What’s the best mileage you’ve gotten with your Type R?

    Prompted by the thread about the Type R range...

    Before I put the R away for winter, for one tank I drove really easy to see just what was the best mileage I could attain. Very easy on the throttle; timing stoplights; anything to get mileage. This was daily commuting and errands; some hills, some level ground, some freeway but mostly surface roads; probably never over 65 mph, no “spirited” driving. Theses are not the stock tires, but an all season (Nitto Neo Gen 245/30R 20) so I could drive the R in colder temps without worrying about warming up the tires.

    I calculated 43.51 mpg--5.749 gallons of 91 non-oxygenated gasoline at the station I use most often, and 249.8 miles. As you can see, the car computer calculated a little less.

    Granted, this is not my normal mileage, but it shows what *can* be attained.

    That’s excellent. Your previous drives weren’t bad either. Just shows what can be done with a light foot
    BTW she looks beautiful!

    I daily drive my car (it can take me 1 hr to go 15 miles if traffic is bad) where it can range from stop and go traffic to as fast as I want to go depending on time of day and if there are any accidents along the way. I get anywhere from 22 - 30 mpg all depending on the traffic. The total drive each day is around 47 miles.

    Lol I don’t understand my car, in 100% city driving with traffic lights every mile or so I get 24-25mpg. I just did a 300 mile trip on the interstate no traffic doing around 80-84 and I get 26mpg. It must be the full load of people and luggage lol.

    That’s amazing mileage. I do a 35-mile mixed city/highway commute and get 28.8 mpg at the moment. Had no idea that anything close to 40 mpg was possible. I will try your experiment during the winter.

    Can you help explain how to use the trip history? I've looked in the manual and tried to search YouTube but no one talks about it...what am I missing? Am I suppose to reset my trip every fill up so that it will use the next previous field...I'm a science guy and love numbers/data but can seem to get that section to work for me.

    It looks like it tracks your previous three trips on "Trip A". Just rest your trip meter at each fill-up if you want to track each tank. Or let it go longer and track over a longer period of time.

    I wasn’t really able to drive with them much before hibernating the car; but definitely picked up less gravel and road debris! Quieter (a little, it seemed) than stock. Didn’t have a chance to *really* try them out., unfortunately.

    Every fill up I try to see how high I can keep the MPG... that usually lasts until i hit the first stretch of open road, then I "ruin" it in 1 shot. It seems like just 1 short session of "spirited" driving is enough to destroy the average for an entire tank.
